Default Survey Lister D Exhaust

I want to conduct a small survey. If you were restoring a Lister D engine which exhaust would you fit to it, the narrow type or deep type exhaust. I will place my order to Stationery Eng Pts based on the result from the forum. Thanks.

Three types of silencer were used on the Lister D's. If you want originality it all depends on the age of your engine.

Before 1932 I think it was cast iron between 1932 and 1952 it was a deep silencer and after 1952 it was a narrow silencer

My 1939 D has the thin one - although it is a genuine Lister part I doubt if it is the first silencer the engine has had!

There are more than that. Theres the 2 common tin ones, the early cast iorn one, the base exhaust for use on compressor sets etc.

I have a 100% original Lister D with a very unusual silencer on it. In fact I have only ever seen the silencer on 1 other D type.

I have a compressor set with an original pot type exhaust mounted on the cast base with a Hamworthy pump.

Interesting stuff, sounds like the basis of an article for the magazine

A few pics would be good of the more unusual types.
Cheers
Dave

There is further variety on the wide and narrow pressed silencers as some had LISTER pressed in to them, some didn't.
