If I've read Listers codes correctly your engine was no 158 built between January and June 1956.

Many thanks for the replys.
I just got engine going today.
No spark so replaced HT lead from magneto. Then petrol hose was leaking it had a flexible hose. So intend making a solid copper one. Atleast it is running now. Work in progress.
I also got a lister H2 pump with the engine.
Cheers Seamus
