Default Hi From Dartford

Hi there.

I have just acquired my very first engine, having seen some on display at the Laughton fair recently.

Loved the sound they made and quirkiness of them.

I have a Lister D that has been restored but not run recently. It took three of us to get it out of my car! Didn't realise they were so heavy.

Now looking to build a basic trolley, get the engine mounted and see if it runs. I believe it should just need a bit if tinkering to get it running ok, hopefully.

The engine plate on mine says 9155 DH 4, so I need to do some research on its history etc.

May well be calling on you all for help and advice in the future.

Regards,

John.

Hi John,

Welcome to the best old engine forum around.

Your Lister D engine dates to 1954.

Hello John. Welcome to the forum. They are a bit heavy aren't they. (Thats why so many engine men walk funny) Good luck with the D mate

Thanks Air-Cooled, that makes it one year older than me, appropriate

I agree with Novo that the growing old is optional, don't ever want to do that.

Thanks.

John
