Default 3 hp Lister Type J

Does anyone know how the plugs on top of the valves come off?
Iím assuming they unscrew?

Yes they would be screwed into the water jacket.

Actually i think they may be a push fit into the water jacket and a clamp (not shown on your picture) presses down on them to keep them in place.

Well, this engine doesn't have the clamp if it ever had one. And I'm not sure how it would attach?

Hello all
To be honest I haven't seen that setup on a J before. Anymore pictures of the engine and makers tag?
Usually blind head J's and L's have 2 cast iron flange looking things held down with 2 bolts for each flange. One flange having the spark plug screwed into it as far as I knew.
Very interesting.

Cheers Scott

Couple of more pictures. Iím surprised if they are threaded, they donít have a hex head on them to gain a purchase.

The "H" valve caps were similar at one time and because of their smaller size were retained by a strap held by one stud only instead of two.

Is that engine one of those Canadian ball top hopper Listers?
