Hi Everyone

Just passing by to show some improvements:

Do you recognize this GRYPHON? Lets turn to the Lister again...

Passing taps to tune threads.

Block bottom has a coat of alu paint primary.

And it has a very specialized four hands crane with NASA's made design lift bar, and a custom trolley.

Do you remember of my hunting cat, instead of a dog?

Cheers

Hi Everyone

Butch, the 12/2 is intended to be just a show piece, as I said before, because it is village history preservation.

Gryphon pump is finishied, with it's original color;

And the 12/2 block is on my "Cat's" paint bench.

Cheers

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - non governor cam pin

Hi Everyone

And specially Butch, whom I request his opinion about my idea to put back the non governor cam pin.

As seen in pic I drilled the center pin, that I intend to thread and put a screw, after tapping the pin.

Feel free to make your point of view.

Cheers
VP

Ps: Anyone can tell the correct cam end float. I have 0,3mm. Is that ok?

Hi Everyone

Old cart dismantled, and reconfigured to be temporarily side to side wheels, and to allow some mobility.

Have a safe weekend

Hi Everyone

Just an update, and some pics.

12/2 on his temporary trolley, and cylinder studs in place screwed by the method of 38AC good practices, with teflon in threads.

Have a nice and safe week

Hi Everyone

Updating with some pics:

Tuning IP tappets and governor linkage.

Cam followers brackets and decompression levers ready to be snuggled.

And the socket saga continues, this time a M28 to replace a 1.1/8", needed for torqueing the head nuts.

Cheers

Hi Everyone

One more day to the 12/2 come up. Today arrived the chinese dial comparator (stand and tip extenders are on the way), and a offered (new) 200 Liter raw steel drum to make the cooling tank.

Cheers

Hi Everyone

While nothing else is done, the joints for the camshaft end cover are being cutted off, using 38AC method.

Have a sunny day.

Hi Everyone

One more solution to save the non governor IP cam lobe taper pin.

After tapped a drop of loctite should be ok.

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - governor linkage
« Reply #208 on: August 30, 2019, 01:05:45 AM »
Hi Everyone

Another step... tuning governor linkage. Somewhere (I don't remember now where) I'd seen this trick.

Here is the trick: Install InjPumps with no tappets, put both racks in full STOP position (Put some wire hanging the rack in full stop position, you may hook it to a cylinder stud).

(see now CS manual) put both bottom governor levers, Rt and Lt, in perpendicular position; put connect rod linking this levers, screwing rod fork and snuggling lock nut; don´t forget to put joint pins with small wire (see pic. It's just temporary, at the end I'll fit split pins).

Put both upper levers with Eye end, and put joint pins all over. Now put connecting rods from lower levers to upper levers and adjust both forks to connecting pin's hole, and put pins in.

Certify - with a calliper, or good eyeball - both racks move freely and with same opening measure.

«Off course when you fire the engine you will note if your measure are even. If not so, there will be 3 points to tune - just eliminate two of them to get things wright.»

Pay attention to worned joint pins. Reduce as much as possible clearances. In my case I've to make a few new ones.

Once again many thanks to Jim Perkins of the 3/16 rod. Save my day.

feel free to contribute.

Cheers
VP
