Except they don't seem to list any manuals!
Call them?

reason i want it is that after leaving college i worked for a famous traffic light company fixing there generators and just had a phone call from a friend who i used to wirk with and he has gotten hold of said engine and wants it fixed up trouble is its been so long i cant remember much about the engine.

so i need a manual for it or at least drawings.

they were great engines to work with simple and hard as nails they were damm near indestructable,

always rememberede that the injectors could be turned into flame throwers lol.

will give lister petter a call in the morning see if they can help me out.

Great little machines remember them well, gave very little trouble and easy enough to repair. If you have a long established hire shop local bet there is a manual in the back some place.

But saying that I dont ever remembers seeing one myself. Just get stuck in and do it.

Good luck

My only worry is the torque for the cylinder head and injector i think its 30LB per square inch but i aint sure also the timing on it and lining up the small dot on the fly wheel so the engine fires at the right time,

Still i cant wait to get my hands on it :)

No idea what the torque was or is, winters day wet cold muddy site tighten up with socket and ratchet, tight was tight. I spent most of my time out on site not in the workshop, so the order of the day was get it going. The main stored we carried were injectors and head shims, brushes, and switches for the generator side. Average repair time if memory serves me right about half an hour.

Paddyjack what lister engine did you work on?

For an ac01 a complete strip down and rebuild was 8 hours.
