Hi my friends

Today (after 400km) is time to give some TLC to the beast!

Timing injection pumps: pics by order...

1 - setting the probe to the comparator (nothing like a strip of duct tape). This probe - I think - NASA's will never get an ideia of it's origin - ok I disclose, it's a stell strip that holds the visel rubber of a wind shild wiper.

2 - setting the magnetic base of the comparator in place;

3 - setting the magnetic mark in filter to align with the fly rim;

4 - setting the TDC in the comparator;

That's a BLOODY long way to drive to get an engine! You are really keen. Looks like it was worth it though.
Maybe I should expand my search area.  Mate has started truck driving again so I could look farther afield and still not have to go that far!  :laugh:

The Kohler generator with Lister ST2 was a four hour drive then once I had arrived had to wait another two hours for the bugger to come home.

The Lister was run short of oil, the engine side cover has been removed so far pleased with what I'm seeing.

The crankshaft thrust bearing has not had the bearing material scuffed off and the camshaft surfaces look decent.

I'll know more once the connecting rod caps have been pulled.

Lister Based Generators / Lister TS2, insufficient oil in valve cover
« Last post by madlabs on November 15, 2019, 05:24:49 PM »
HI All,

Pulled the valve cover today on the Lister TS2 and it appears there isn't enough oil making it to the top. One valve had at least some oil coming out of the little hole on the rocker arm but the other doesn't. Oil pressure to the top seems ok, when cracking the banjo fitting near the valve cover plenty of oil came out.

There is a little tube that comes up from where the oil enters the valve cover. It splits into two and appears to dive into the head, presumably to exit on the rocker arms. Can I pull the little tube assembly out to clean? Or can I blow through it in place? Both cylinders show the same oil pattern.
