Default lister A and lister V pump

hi all

purchased this at the weekend because i have never seen one before and im a bit lister mad.

the axels will be coming off and it will be put on a better trolley, it is a 1926 lister A type and i was wondering how early did these go?

it was used to pump water from a well the was half a mile from the house and water takes where it was used. i forget where the farm is now but i think it was near cambridge.

I think that is absolutely lovely - what a good buy!

That must be a very early Spec. A16; my A16 was 1928. I think the A-type only started a year or so before your set.

Martin.

That is VERY nice!

Looks a bit "odd" with the round tank hanging off some brackets though, kinda make you wonder if it should have the later style engine mounted tank.

Congratulations, what a super find!! To quote a well used phrase,"Never cease to be amazed at what is still out there!!!!" I've never seen one like that before.

the tank is hanging on the side because it would be mounted next to it on the ground. so that I didn't have to bend the pipes it was hung on the side for now but it will be changed once it is on the road trailer.

I was rallying ta the Suffolk Show this year beside someone running one like that, suddenly there was a god awful noise, looked around and he'd ran his polishing rag through the gears.
Fortunately no damage to him nor pump (well needed a bit of adjustment).
