Default Farm fresh lister D

Well after picking this farm fresh 1942 lister D shearing set up on Monday she is now running.

The exhaust valve was stuck solid and there was a bent push rod because of it. So after taking the head off I then saw the valves and seats where very bad. So I sent that off for the valves to be remachined and the seats to be 're cut. Then after a good check and clean out inside she fired up.

The engine has been on the same farm all it's life and the story was also confirmed by Doreen too. It is all original and I do have the cables they arenít just soaking in oil at the minute to free off, Here is a few pictures and a video.

Looks and sounds nice, will make a good "working clothes" show engine.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.
