cloudy weather started, new season on Listeroid power
« on: November 05, 2017, 07:19:42 PM »
couple weeks ago, in prep for winter, I did an oil change, wiped the dust off, and topped off the diesel cans.
 Then I got a shoulder replacement.  boy that electric start is nice, no way could I crank and re-compress with 1 arm.  3 more weeks before i'm out of the sling and start  rehab.
Wife hates the 3600 rpm screamer. have about 6 hours since I'm back from hospital, and lots rain coming in this next week.

Congrats on the successful shoulder joint replacement, I hope it continues to mend nicely and gives you many years of pain-free movement!

Is it true us Lister owners are always older and more worn out than our engines?

You may be right.
I'm quite certain my Listeroid will outlive me!

I'm hoping I'm the exception.... my Lister is 20+ years older than me (the JP that I just sold  :'( is even older). I think we're about evens on the worn out scale!
Cheers!

Ade,

You've started a really disturbing train of thought here, I think my CS is old, it's '34.

I don't think I'm old, I'm a '55.

Well. didn't 'till I read you post and worked out that I'm 75% as old as the Lister.........

Cheers Stef
