???

Was this a question?

If it helps, with the piston at TDC you should be able to slide the cam lobe in so that both valves are just "on the rock" (i.e. making contact). As you rock the crank back and forth about TDC, the valves should close symmetrically either side. Lister did this so that the engines could be reversible without messing with valve timing.

Thanks for your input. I have had it running but it runs like a hit and miss. Been cleaning up all the governor parts also checking the valve timing.theirs two dot marks top and bottom on the cam gear plus maybe a makers mark

I've got a B exactly like yours, because it doesn't have a float bowl it sucks direct from the tank, it can be a little hit and miss particularly when it has no load, as does my single flywheel lister A.

I've a got an A and a B, both from 1924 and they're quite erratic when running light and slow.

Don't panic. As Martin says, it's a feature!
