Hi Everyone

Strip down goes on.

But, first in the morning I got to make a 2" spanner for pipe fiting, to unfasten and fasten conical bits, of "another" italian water pump. This one looks really a piece of cutting edge engineering. See pic.

After that take the 12/2 apart. This time Stef's method works. 2 wheels off.

Both camshaft end cover off. And a very interesting thing is the left cover has 5/16 studs and... 5/16 BSF format nut.

Sump is "reading old news".

The 55kg each wheel.

And the basket to amuse next days...

Thats all for now.

Have a nice week.

PS: crankshaft center bearing nut is 1.5/16" socket. Another headache... and too hands inside is too much.

Wow VP, you have been busy! I hope you have not been ignoring your policing duties. I would hate to read in the newspapers that there has been a sudden rise in the crime rate in Portugal!  :laugh:

I can`t help thinking that you are clearly a very fine engineer and those skills are probably underused in the police force. If you are as good a policeman as you are a diesel mechanic god help the criminals.

Keep up the good work.

Bob

Hi Bob

Don't be worried with the duty. I'm not a patrolman (daily basis!). I lead, as graduated rank, a team of logistics branch in my station, and by work schedule senior duty officer.

Only summertime duty is toughest due to safety and security in beachs.

One day at a time...

Take care of your hand!

Cheers
VP

PS: Don't forget I must travel 170km*2 to meet my 12/2 everytime, because it's seated in the village [and mainly give a good hand to my octogenarians].

Hi Everyone

I'd like some help with a question: look at the pic first.

The Lister manual points that the oil thrower ring has that direction, but in my 12/2 it was flipped, and I think was in original position, because it had original green paint.

Opinion are wellcome

Cheers

Hi Everyone

updating tasks: the basket is full, I think i'll need another one to store parts already painted of  the 12/2.

And a courtesy of Jim Perkins to send me 3/16 round bar.

I have removed and reinstalled more then a few of those sealing rings but its been a while since I have been through a CS and can't remember. I always place a punch mark on them to keep them matched side for side and it also serves to mark the outside,,,thus I have not had to pay strict attention to them,, sorry.  That being said they were worki,g as they were, put them back in the same way >:(

Many thanks Butch

I think that the drawing of the manual will not be correct, because the proper architecture of the washers can only have the direction in which the grooves are to make of seal with the felt, as well as the gap between the main bearing and the flyhweel.

What do you say? Do you consider this reasoning correct?

Hi Everyone

One more saturday round trip to the Lister.

following Butch's advice, and with proper care, I had to grind the injection pump cam lobe pin (pay attention to the wooden block to support the shaft).

the 2 inch handcrafted spanner with sharp point gave a good help hammering it off.
After that, some polishing in two flywheels, and polley.

I expected to bring the "anaconda" home but the 33 socket didn't work at that narrow sump space (crankshaft centre bearing) . I got to test a ring spanner next time. After that is done...

At least the cam shaft pays the trip...

See you next time.

Glad to see you got the taper pin out. The difficulty there varies a lot with how hard they were knocked in by the assembler.
The paint color looks spot on. I don't suppose we can get it here but what brand and color is it?
