Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - tightening central main bearing

Hi All

Nothing like a sweaty evening to tighten the central bearing of the shaft.

Some pics for enthusiasts.

Cheers.
VP

PS: remember wrench lever I made before?

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - one more visit to the beast
« Reply #227 on: October 01, 2019, 01:39:37 AM »
Hi Gentle

Who can confirm to me the torque of the main bushing nuts.

I found this table: http://www.oldengine.org/members/diesel/Articles/rrchapt8.htm

But I think the values are tabulated for R-grade, and the original studs should not be R-grade, because the torque wrench was already 60ftlbs, and I don't think they could handle 70ftlbs.

Well, the connecting rods are already in place too ...

Cheers

Hi Gentle

Some more steps.

Con rods are in place and torqued.

Oil manifold too. Take a look at blind snuggle and tighten of oil delivery pipe! It's not easy with that french wrench!

Be happy

Hi Gentles

the "greeny" is growing.

Straightened oil pipes (I mean more curved) and starting to set bump clearance.

Cheers

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - the beast is getting up

Hi All

Some more twiking in the beast, fit cylinder joints to set height, tin to set bump clearance, ready to torque.

Loosening nuts and measuring clearance.

Now I got to do math.

Have a good weekend

Hi All

Making high tech tool to squeeze rings.

2nd coat of MBG on cylinders and heads.

Fitting cylinders down.

snuggling water manifold and intake manifold to get flange aligned (38AC good practice), to torque head down evenly.

I think it will be enough for today.

Nice weekend.

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - torqued and rockers in place
« Reply #235 on: October 20, 2019, 01:35:23 AM »
Hi Gentles

Baskets are almost empty. Head and cylinders torqued - and final clearance rests in 1,3mm. Good figure, just a few thou above max advised.

It starts to look nice... rockers and push rods in place too.

VP

PS: final clearance taken thru injector hole.

Hi Folks

Small bits are rushing from the basket to the 12/2. Impressive is the minimum I can say.

This afternoon, after sealing governor housing, I saw injection pumps crying to take their place above governor housing - and there they are.

Now I'm expecting they give me a good tip in order to set the sharp timing spill, and get the beast alive.

2 pics for those like more image than rant.

Cheers

Ps: remember that camshaft IP lobe threded? take look.

I do not comment a lot on your posts but I am always following. I still have one and a half of these to finish I am jealous of your progress. Looks fantastic can't wait for the video and soundtrack of the first start.

Regards Bernhard
