Happy B-day!

She'll be a gem when you're done, I have no doubt!  (My personal favorite is your Bamford restoration.)

I'm ticking over the 60 year marker in another 7 weeks myself.  Time is getting short!

Happy Happy, Butch! 60 is a great number!

Remember that age is just a number, Youth is an attitude. I know, - easier said than done when the physical frame is gradually wearing out and we are slowing down. We just have to make up for, in wisdom, what we once accomplished in speed.

Congrats!

Happy Birthday Butch  ;D
We are only as old as we feel...well, thats what they keep telling me.  I should have taken better care of myself when I was younger...HA!
You still have plenty of prime years to go!  :D   Old age age and treachery beat out youth and enthusiasm most of the time.

Beautiful engine, cant wait to see you make her purr!

Also happy birthday Butch,

Congratulations on finally getting your hands on a twin cylinder CS (I know you had been looking for some time). I will look forward to a well documented forum thread on its restoration.

As an early engine, you may not have chrome plated cylinder bores, and will have 2.1/4" diameter big end journals [ Assuming the engine still has the the original crank, and is a genuine 10/2, not a later 12/2 that has the RPM setting reduced from 650 to 500].

If you don't mind me asking. What was the engine that you part exchanged for the CS twin?

Nice present and happy birthday. Tell us more about the injectors and what's special about this engine.

the 10/2 makes for a nice birthday present

and

It is 1937 production

Sorry to rain on your parade Butch, but looking at the Lister CS production figures that I have access to (which were originally compiled by David Harris) 10/2 production had ceased by the end of 1933 [with a total production of 2115 engines, which makes it the second rarest CS, after the CS 3/1 engine]. So its quite possible that you have a 12/2 that has been down rated to 10 HP.

1937 looks fine, all Cold Start 5/1, 6/1, 10/2 and 12/2 numbers ran together, there is no separate list.

The factory shipped out 5/1 or 6/1 and 10/2 or 12/2 according to customer needs, they were the same engines, just different RPM.

I think these twins are the most wonderful of the Lister engines.  It's being owned and taken care of by someone that respects it is just plain justice.

Best wishes with your fantastic present.

I try to remember what the wise man muttered on his 90th birthday.  "Ah, to be 80 again."

PS.  Would you all post Peter's information to the back cover of his wonderful book.  I'm thinking that ownership of said book might be required ownership to be a part of this great website.
