Hi Snow

No, just renewing the wrapping.

To do - if - new rewind I'll go to the specialized shop (see here): https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8333.msg102277#msg102277

It was where I got wrap materials.

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - snooping around my thread
« Reply #288 on: March 23, 2020, 12:31:38 PM »
Hi Gentles

Times are tough. This COVID19 is shutting down everything, but we will stand!

Snooping around my thread - nothing to derust in shop (I call it office) - and reviewing some replies, lets pull the string to some of my good fellows!

1st and etc. - Some special thanks: To broncodriver99 and mikenash wom sent promptly 12/2 manual, To Butch (aka 38AC) for every encoraging word and knowlege; to Bob (aka Ajjafa1) undertanding the world is round, there is more land after south pole; to Hugh (aka Hugh Conway) almost in north pole gave me a hand to search parts that I needed;

2nd - To Dax21 (https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg97238#msg97238): said "i doubt that that cart would last 5 minutes with my Sr2 standing on it". the kart worked well to take the iron out of the shack, and after rufurbished and rotated to fit as is now. Dax, feel free to save planning of the kart, and put the SR2 on it!

3rd - To Johndoh (https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg97243#msg97243): said "I wouldn't like to be near the 12/2 when it starts balanced on that cart". Johndoh, see the vids and don't be affraid, but always prepare to run, we never know!

4th - To Bob (Ajjafa1) - hoping he gets his house quickly up - (https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg96978#msg96978) he said "I am a little concerned about your modification to the fuel filter, I`m not convinced the pressure holding the filter against the o`ring will be sufficient and could allow unfiltered diesel to bypass the filter". But he saw the final product and said "very nice work" (https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg97811#msg97811). Be safe Bob!

If I missed someone don't be sad. I'd like to highlight the best.

Cheers
VP

Glad it worked for you.  My SR2 is permanently mounted on a huge concrete block (1.6x0.5x0.5m).  When and if I ever need to move it, it will be with a 3T chainblock onto the back of my pick-up

Hi Dax

Nice to hear from you. Your SR2 is certainly attached to something.

For me this engines are just a challenge to put them alive (regardless some money thrown to south - rather for parts then for pharmacie), and they are not intended to be put on service. Just to get me busy and amused.

Cheers, and stay safe.

Mine works.  I am offgrid, with a rather small system (3KVA), so when I need to weld or run any machinery, then I fire up the Lister.  Probably doing an average of about 10hrs per month

Stay safe too.  We are entering lockdown for the next 3 weeks, so have no choice.

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - Daily fuel tank cap
« Reply #298 on: July 19, 2020, 02:57:48 PM »
Hi Gentles

A few time ago I made a deal regarding a original Lister daily fuel tank, but it happens when I picked it up, the owner couldn't found tank cap. Deal remained but cut half price.

Since that I twisted my head about find a cap to the fuel tank. Yesterday I was in the dealer shop and a BP oil drum cap jumped to my eye, grabbing a tape measure to see if diameter was close enough, it came right with me.

After pulling off the foam seal, it fits like a glove on the fuel tank. Now we're getting somewhere.
Stay all safe.

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - putting back flywhells in hub
« Reply #299 on: July 19, 2020, 11:10:46 PM »

A few days ago (befor finish the 12/2) I read (I think was Utterpower) about best way to fit flys, and I did like this:
1 - A good clean of shaft.
2 - put some baby powder (yes, baby powder) in the shaft and push flys along.
3 - I left 1/4" (in fact 5mm) as 38AC advized, between outside face of the bearing housing and face of fly (put a 5mm steel rod in gap).
4 - snug gib key, and after a good tap in a long rod of brass with a mallet, to not damage gib.


Gib key with powder in LEF, see here: https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=530.msg6407#msg6407

Just to link info.
