Lister C/S
« on: June 21, 2020, 10:57:40 PM »
Hi.. Firstly thanks for including me on the forum.. I have been given a C/S with a startomatic alternator the serial number is a bit hard to read looks like..   CS 93111  spec 5/9/35  hp6  rpm650 . apparently it was running fine when put into shed 40 years ago, and it still turns over although the box ontop of alternator has corroded away.. Any suggestions on how to go about restore [ im a maintenance engineer but not familiar with Lister }......Thanks  Daryl New Zealand...

Welcome Owenga

Firstly let me congratulate you on being "given" and Lister CS.
Refurbish it nicely and the unit will outlive you.  :)

I can't offer any advice on the startomatic starter/generator but there are uses here who are quite knowledgeable.
The engines are very simple and a joy to dismantle and tinker with.
Check the bore, piston and rings.
Check the valve guides and seats. Lap the valve seats if everything else is ok.
Change the big-end bearing.

Post some picture as you go.
