Just looks like corrosion to me? I assume that area was between the flywheels and seal ring? As to the pump cam pitting I would not be too concerned about it. However if you can source them somewhere for reasonable price replace them.

Many thanks Butch

As I said  before only a few "nuts" like me - and I can't find nomore arround  -  start a sort of passion for this old machines. Therefore, most of them are simply dumped to scrap container, for melting - in perfect run condition...

And for the heartbreaking there is no listeroids, only genuine dursley cast iron.

So, I got to save thoses  cam lobes anyway.

Hi Everyone

This week parts arrived from UK.

Heads and new valves are in VEICOMER to grind seats, and crankshaft and conrods to verify clearences.

Here is the link, take a look  at: https://veicomer.com/en/

Impressive-looking business

I'm sure it will be good, but I'd be surprised if it was cheap?

Hi Everyone

While the heads are not in order to mount again, the flywheels have come down to paint.

Actually at this time already has the primary.

It remains to do the cleaning and painting of the sump.

This weekend I was promised a few railway sleepers  to seat the Lister.

I think it will be fine on them.

Hi Butch

Indeed... I do my best. Blame the google translator cause it doesn't get the context. And i'm improving every day!

Nothing better than a image... Here it goes.

What you are after is commonly called square key stock.  Here we can purchase it at any good hardware store or at the China tool store called Harbor Freight. If you don't have access to such places go to Ebay and buy it there.

Hi Everyone

Just passing by to show flywheels and pulley, painted and preserved for the next stage of assembly.

The rims and pulley face have been varnished and are gorgeous.

After a few vacation days...
