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;

Is the difference that huge?

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.

Good thinking mike,
You would think that is common sense but in these days of littigation common sense has gone out the window.

nobody else said it, so I will.

There are lethal voltages inside that box. 
stop the engine
 Adjust  the slider
Start the engine and check the voltage
stop the engine and adjust again as needed.

By the way does anyone know of parts suppliers in the US for 1115 engines??  Also, looking for a source of banjo fitting copper sealing rings.
I literally just received a batch today from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076W9LYR5  They seem OK.
Changfa Engines / Re: How to remove fuel injection pump in 295d engine ?

No, I haven't removed the injection pump pinion - I'm assuming that's the bigger gear that the shaft is in ?  I'll get more pics on Sat - I don't get home till after dark and lighting is miserable out there.

I've just realized that the rotation of the whole injection pump assembly is how it's timed ...  Re-reading the "Adjust of the Advance Angle of Fuel Delivery" section in the manual indicates that you have to loosen those 3 bolts holding it to the engine and rotate it to set that angle.  Well, those bolts are out and I've rotated it a few times while trying to remove it ...

So this weekend will re-assemble it all, then try to fully bleed the system of air.  I haven't found anything to indicate how much oil should be in the injection pump yet.  When I rotated it with the plunger off, a small amount dribbled out.  I read *somewhere* about someone filling it till oil came out of the vent ?  I think ?

Ah ha - found a video sort of about it.  It's almost the exact same injection pump as I have

Hi guys,

And thanks a lot for good advice once again. Have to buy that meter from eBay and check the Hz reading soonest possible. Just now we in Finland and in my cottage place, we have around 26-28 degrees .. meaning minus :-) So, a little bit cold there in my cottage, but I try to find out that soonest possible. Also nice to know for your guys, that we in Finland and in Lapland, are using so called winter diesel, which has some added materials to burn right and also to start in that low temperatures. But I have prepared for that. I bought last september that winter fuel and so I have that awailable already there.

OK, lets see, when I can report from next steps in my case .. take care

I would suggest doing the setting while the engine is under common or mid range load.
It is likely to change as soon as you put any load on it if you set it while free running without any load.
