Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - Torque wrench snap locknut

Hi Gentles

After much argument with brand representative, today came the answer that the locknut has arrived, but also had the solution in sight...

Who doesn't has a dog, hunts with the cat ...

Merry Christmas everyone

Sirpedrosa,

Hi Ron

I try to do my best, with the few means I have.

I wish the same to you and your home crew, and friends.

Cheers

Hi Gentles

Winter goes calm, the project of projects is finished (only the cooling tank and the proper kart are missing).

A few more occasional repairs: to another electric pump, give the old man's compressor a good overhaul, restore (if it can be) a dynastarter.

There is also a half-stopped project, let's see it gets somewhere, or just for scrap - for now it only spents my time, some oil retainers, a few ball bearings and special screws. At least I made a new tool for putting valve collets.

A few pics maybe give a better idea.

Cheers

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - Torque wrenches certified
« Reply #277 on: January 25, 2020, 12:04:58 AM »
Hi Gentles

Remember my torque wrenches? The big one has its new locknut, and the small was out of spec.

Both taken to the metrology Lab of ISQ (see: https://www.isq.pt/EN/services/metrology/) and certified (see seals).

This Lab is internationally renowned.

Be safe.

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - One head gasket to south, maybe!
« Reply #279 on: February 04, 2020, 10:31:57 PM »
Hi Gentles

Today I was maintaining the Lister. I filled the cylinder jackets with water, and when it started to work he splashed some water through the hot water outlet manifold.

I suspect that one of the head gaskets must be leaking. A few more hours to take the heads apart.

Nothing that a Lister can't be worth.

Anyway, TLC.

Cheers

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - cyl #2 low spot leaking
« Reply #280 on: February 05, 2020, 07:45:19 PM »
Hi Gentles

The two heads are out and cleaned. A eye ball magnifier shows cyl # 2 was leaking due to a low spot.

Do you remember I didn't skim the cylindres, because I don't want to loss original stamps in the cast iron.

I think that just a retorque of studs will do, but in this way I can get the global picture of the work done before.

Now will get copper gasket seal to fill that little spot, and torque nuts to proper spec.

Cheers
VP

Pics:
#1 refer to cylinder 1
#2 refer to cyl 2

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - copper gasket applied, and heads in place
« Reply #282 on: February 06, 2020, 05:55:49 PM »
Hi Gentles

Copper gasket applied in both bottom face of gaskets, because the face of heads has been skimmed and so they are perfectly flat.

Heads already in place and torqued, and I forget to make a pic of the coated gaskets.

Next start up of it iŽll let it warm up a bit to retorque all nuts, while it stays warm after shutdown.

Cheers

PS: 1 pic of the product.

Remember I said that the shack where the Lister was could not take another winter?

Storms Elsa and Fabian broke the roof of the shack.

2 pics from before and after.
