Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - pig tail
« Reply #240 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 #242 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,
Jim

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - fuel pump timimg with comparator
« Reply #244 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;

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);

15 - aling the line of the plunger with start injection line;

16 - detail of fine tunning;

Hi Stef

Each 350 kg provides a complete olive paste press. I usually get 10% extra virgin olive oil. A few kgs are salted and preserved to serve as table "hors d'oeuvre".

Cheers

Lister 12/2 ALIVE - 21NOV2019
« Reply #254 on: November 21, 2019, 07:16:32 PM »
Hi my Friends

First of all I'd like to thanks to all of you, whom helped me to reach this mile stone.

THE LISTER IS ALIVE!

4 pics and the link to 2 vids starting cyl 1 and cyl 2.

Cylinder 1 starting: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19icG0EaDB67yH_wLljhglXsW1nyKESBo/view?usp=sharing
Cylinder 2 starting: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mk67GVyECd4eY0EDzCZ4OsBGyU82oe-W/view?usp=sharing

Couldn't start both cylinder at same time, because I realised it was to much kinetic energy to that casters in order to run steady.

Next step: making trolley and cooling tank.

Cheers
VP
