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 #202 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

Hi Everyone

Sump/block came down to prepare to paint.

112kg of British cast iron! casted on 24JUL57.

Cheers
VP

That is one nice casting, I just looked at some other pictures and the flywheels and other parts are nicely casted as well. It’s going to be a very nice engine.

Hi Everyone

While 12/2 still in shop to fit new valves, I amused with small things.

Most of all giving a hand to my parents threshing corn of their small production (primitive white corn, to make white corn bread);

and... sniffing arround I found a small 2-stroke engine in my old man´s scrap drum that belonged to a sprayer knapsack.
After stripped all down, It's working very good, see here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mhexOk7vQW1AQpAYV5YpRUoPVmZ5lf2a/view?usp=sharing

Some pics to help those don't care about reading.

Have a nice time
VP

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - antiques show and a lost soul
« Reply #206 on: September 14, 2019, 11:40:25 PM »
Hi Gentle

One saturday in the village, with a tour to the antiques show in the county town.

I was told that in the old mill - which in the past was water-powered - had an old stationary engine there, but it must have been badly damaged over time.

I took a look, and it in reality was stripped and stolen, it lefted only the block, with the flywheels, and the crankshaft already rusted. see the pictures. It is a 12/2 of 1957.
