Original Lister Cs Engines / Gov stuck, any easy suggestions?
« Last post by Hugh Conway on Today at 12:17:42 AM »
After a few years of non operation, I have finally started up this 6/1. After a fuel bleed, it started easily.
To my dismay, I could see that the gov is not operating. With the linkage removed, it's easy to realize that the problem is internal, as the injector rack and external  linkage is free of any binding.
The flyweights or the sliding sleeve or the internal linkage is stuck. Before I (sigh) take things apart, does anyone have a possible solution. I've just re-installed the wheels and it's a startomatic, so they are heavy.
All suggestions entertained, though I think I will have to do some disassembly to remedy the situation.
Cheers
Hugh

Reminds me of a friend who's favorite tool is a hamer.

I watched a video of a man doing a rebuild of a ST generator head with the same technique. May
have been the same crew.

We might be missing something by not adding all that sand with our own jobs ! It would be easy for
me I live in Florida. If anyone needs a couple of pounds of sand let me know I'll ship you some !
(If you have a Listeroid you should have plenty in the cranlkcase)

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a Listeroid


Indians may not have much to work with, but they are resourceful.

Re: refurbishment video

Cringe ! ! !
Apparently S.O.P. I have watched similar videos repairing the Indian made Royal Enfield motorcycles.....engine rebuild at the roadside, for example.  Same techniques. Parts are cheap.
Most amazing is that after all the abuse, it starts easily and runs OK.
Shows how tough these engines are.
Indians may not have much to work with, but they are resourceful.
Appropriate technology.

I weep, seeing the repair techniques

Can you imagine what the bottom bore of that block looks like after banging that punch into it to knock the liner out? The bottom Oring ought to seal nicely now,😆😆

The EA300 engines are very good, I like them. If you can put parts away than that will be the way to go. Still have a bunch of air and oil filter strainers for them.
