Have rec'd parts & beginning to put back together.   How do I change the main bearing?  I think I can make a tool to press the the one in the crankcase, but not sure hoe to deal with the other end.  Thanks for any advice.

Hi Farmer, I`m a little confused by your question. The main bearings are shell bearings and can easily be replaced by undoing the bearing caps.
My guess is: you are talking about the brass/bronze bushes on the camshaft, in the service manual Lister specify a purpose made tool for removing/fitting these. I don`t believe that tool is still available to buy. I made a puller out of a suitable sized piece of round bar with a thread down the middle of it, I used a large socket, a washer, piece of thread rod and nut and slowly pulled it out by tightening the nut. I installed the replacement the same way.
Hope this helps.

Bob
