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 #229 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

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - pig tail
« Reply #234 on: November 03, 2019, 03:48:23 PM »
Hi All

All projects are idling (duty far from them), but not fully stopped.

Pig tail is in place. Small bits come slowly from basket, but they will get their place...

Cheers

A few more bits in place.

Injection pipes getting straightened, and water manifolds in place to planning hosing.

Have a good week.

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - Brass parts for cooling circuit
« Reply #236 on: November 04, 2019, 11:01:06 PM »
What about this idea for cooling circuit?

It only needs the valve gate tap.

PS: I managed to get an old stock faucet to make drain tap.

Excellent thread ! I've just acquired a Lister CS 12-2 Generator set & am busy stripping down the engine at the moment.
So this thread is of great interest !
Cheers,

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - fuel pump timimg with comparator
« Reply #238 on: November 16, 2019, 04:21:43 PM »
Hi my friends

Today (after 400km) is time to give some TLC to the beast!

Timing injection pumps: pics by order...

1 - setting the probe to the comparator (nothing like a strip of duct tape). This probe - I think - NASA's will never get an ideia of it's origin - ok I disclose, it's a stell strip that holds the visel rubber of a wind shild wiper.

2 - setting the magnetic base of the comparator in place;

3 - setting the magnetic mark in filter to align with the fly rim;

4 - setting the TDC in the comparator;

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - timing fuel pumps
« Reply #239 on: November 16, 2019, 04:27:05 PM »
5 - mark the TDC in the fly rim;

6 - manual spec by Peter Forbes (RIP)

7 - mark -4.25" = 20 BTDC in the fly rim;

8 - reading the comparator value in mm = 4.25" = 20BTDC = -5,25mm BTDC (stroke);
