Anyone familiar with this control box?
« on: November 17, 2022, 08:01:38 PM »
Hi again,

Today, found from ebay and wondering, if this might do with my current Start-O-Matic ? The seller says, that this has been dissassembled from Lister engine "Removed from 1980s 7KW startomatic set with engine failure, later type with circuit boards". If working, I might be interested in it. The seller has nothing else to it, not any documentation or other stuff. So, only hope inside and buy it :-)

If you have any information, I am very pleased of it.

Cheers

Kari

Hi Kari, yes I think that would work with an earlier model SOM. It looks to have the 24 volt feed for the fuel control solenoid, the low oil pressure wiring and the 240 volt decompression lever solenoid wiring.
I do worry that it takes a lot to kill a Lister engine so it must have done a lot of work or been neglected. You may find some of the relay contacts are worn and will need replacing, fortunately relays are cheap. The main motor starter relay would be more expensive but they are usually very robust.

Hi Bob,

And thanks for fast reply. By the way, do you  have any documentation of this, because to me this is a tricky thing. Never seen this and no documentation available. If you have any, even light version, could you please send it over. I will be pleased to go it through and see, if I'm gonna rise my bid or not :-)

Thanks an take care

Kari

Hi Kari, sorry I have no longer got any documentation for this or anything similar. You need to contact dieselgman (a long term forum member) he has manuals and circuit diagrams for just about everything, might cost you a few bucks. I believe this is his email address: gsj@gci.net
