Default Another one in my shed !

Hi all,

Yesterday I found this engine near to my home, ('she was the toy of my father', her daughter told me).

I'll take great care of her I replied.

She's a B type spec 13 3 1/2 hp and wears number 43086

Also an engine from ''Faul et Fils'' manufacture

I think about 1924

Regards

Pascal

Hi Pascal,

That's a lovely original early Lister B you have there. I would agree on the date at 1924 too.

Bet you're very pleased with your new addition

Is she in running order?

Très bon ! Nice and unrestored. I like the trolley, too.

Hi,

Kevin,
Of course I'm very pleased with her,
She's in running order, I've started her first time but jumps like a kid !!!

Puttputtbang,
I wonder if the best would be to keep her like this (keeping the original paint)
Maybe burned lin seed to protect her.

John,
I've tried to see the mag type but a lot of grease on it
For the moment teeth-brush is my best friend.

Here you can see the ingeneer who shows me the best way to proceed

Cheers

Pascal

Hi all,

I've a look at the keetle of the engine and I saw a lot of corrosion inside,
Has anyone have a solution to protect inside the keetle ?
I've think about restom but I don't know if it's strong enough with hot water.

Regards

Pascal

I run my lister d type with a few squirts of oil in the water so that when I drain it out, the oil is left behind and creates a film that stops further corrosion

A few old tea bags thrown in the hopper are supposed to help. Something to do with the tannin in the tea.

Cheers, Steve

There was also a thread here somewhere which recommended using one of these to hold everything together rather than the leaves and bag chocking your drain tap,

Chris,

I bought a few.
