Default Identify Lister petter please

Hi all, my first post here. Just got a Lister petter genset which has no identifying labels. From looking around I believe it may be an AC1. Not sure about alternator - Marlon maybe?
Here are some pics if anyone can help me. I got filters for air, oil and fuel believing it to be ac1 but can't see how the in tank fuel filter is going to be fitted from what I can see (haven't taken the old one out yet) included is a pic of the fuel filter I purchased. Thanks

Looks like an AC1, but there were a few similar looking models. Clean it up, there should be a data tag on one side of the base.

Given it a good clean since those pics taken but no data labels. Previous owner said they all lifted off from repeated pressure washing. Any distinguishing features the ac1 has?

Certainly one of the A series, not sure if it's AB1 or AC1. get a bucket, disconnect fuel line at tank and screw out the plug in tank bottom. Filter comes out with it. Unscrew and replace. Have a tired AB1 here, now belt driving an alternator at slightly reduced rpm, and still a handy source of (almost) portable power. Sure someone else will be along with a better ID soon. Enjoy the project.
Combustor.

Ok so I got to taking out the old fuel filter and this is what I found... (See pics) obviously no filter in place already. Maybe I'm being dim but cannot see how new filter will fit into mechanism. Also, I tipped the gen on its side so that I wouldn't have to empty the fuel tank when taking out the filter and when I started the gen up again (replacing the old filter plug with no filter) oil started pouring out the air intake thought the new filter I had just replaced!! Doh. Is that oil leak likely to be from tipping the machine or possibly from overfilling with oil when refilling?

Firstly your engine is an AC1 series 2 (series 2 are the later direct injection version)

No, when you had the engine tipped over on its side, you allowed oil to enter into the air filter housing via the crankcase breather.

These filters will snap off under the right conditions, and what you have there is the remains of the old fuel filter, once you unscrew the remaining stub part of the old filter from the threaded steel bung, you can fit the new filter.

Thanks that really helps. I guessed that what I was looking at was probably a stub but it is so worn and gunked up I couldn't be sure. Will oil in the air intake cause problems and is the filter likely to be salvageable with a wash?

Default Identify Lister petter please

I recently allocated a Lister Petter three cylinder, air cooled, Jen set. I am looking to get an operators manual and parts list so that I can do some work on it. I'll attach pictures of the information that I have right now. Will someone please help me with identification and any corresponding paperwork?
