Default 3hp Lister No.CS25358 Spec. 28/10

HARRY!!! I can’t post photos.

I picked up this engine yesterday. It came with a Lister 32/43V 40a DC generator also.

The engine has a small piece chipped out of the flywheel (I have the missing piece) but otherwise seems undamaged. There was oil in the water jacket when I removed the cooling lines though. I’m going to drain the crankcase next and see if there’s an ny water. It turns over free and has compression. I haven’t turned her much as I don’t want to pump any water around if there’s any present. The rack is stiff and the pump plunger stays up after injection. The fuel system will have to be gone through. If she’s not cracked I’d say she’s an easy runner.

Edit: spec no.208/10

I’ve been getting error messages when I try to upload pictures too but with repeated attempts I am eventually successful.
Last batch took about 6 tries.

Managed to move it under my lifting beam and get her high enough to drain the sump. No water, lots of sludge.

Cleaned the crankcase sump. Lots of sludge in the lower sump but the screen wasn’t plugged. Crankcase inspection gets a pass for refill and start attempt.

Fuel pump freeing up with penetrant and working by hand. I will make sure this is good before any attempt to start though. I should build me an injector tester...

Con rod dipper definitely not factory.

HIGH NOTE: SHE RUNS!!!

Just kept working the the fuel pump and she came free, water bottle of fresh diesel gravity feed to the injection pump and she lit right off!

These Lister engines have such a sweet sound to them. I could listen to this engine all day and not get annoyed.
