Just discovered this thread, Good job and good info! I have a listeroid 12/2 that needs a tear down to clean out sand from the manufacturers casting process. Thanks for the motivation!

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - Daily fuel tank cap
« Reply #304 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 #305 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.
