Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - Rally fuel tank
« Reply #346 on: June 17, 2022, 10:59:50 PM »
Hi Gentles

After quite a long time using the syringe as fuel tank, and figuring out the best fuel tank (just for fun) suitable for rally, here is the solution that came up.

Brackets are done (and painted now).

2 pics to enjoy.

Cheers

No man VP.  That plastic tanks looks terrible, and definitely does not suit the period.  Can you not find an old lawnmower or tractor tank made from metal, which would look a lot more "original"

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - Tiny fuel tank (1L)
« Reply #348 on: June 18, 2022, 03:03:06 PM »
Gentles, Dax

I understand you perfactly! But (damn word) I got the original fuel tank. See here: https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg106249#msg106249

But (again?) I just want to show off my engine next mounth at my village in the anual cultural meeting. Caspici?

Off course a plastic fuel tank at a rally contest will be a minus score. But (once more, who cares) I got  to make (not yet) a decent stand to put a drum cool tank, and a stand to original fuel tank.

By now it will must do the job!

Always considering.

paint the plastic tank with a thick coat of lister green (and never let anyone see you take the top off)

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - New slabs for the beast
« Reply #355 on: July 02, 2022, 01:24:58 AM »
Stef, in special, Gentles

Nice to hear from you. Have you see that Z8 I spooted? (the Famel zundapp will have to waite). That journey to switzerland (my sister) and pass thru your place (and Lourdes, of course) it's not forgotten.

By now, Im enrolled to show off my Lister in the anual cultural meeting (see pic)

Already fit 2 new slabs at bottom of engine to make it more stable and presentable. (pic)

Lets see how its goes.

Cheers.
