Default Big end size oh er

I have acquired a lister L type very very cheap no frost damage etc....

But has zero compression because it has no conrod or piston unfortunately I havent had a chance to pick the engine up and tear into it.

it is a spec 82L 1927, on that popular auction site there is a piston and rod for sale but it is from a 104L does anybody know if this will fit did they monkey about with big end sizes etc...

At some point in production they increased the size of the crank to 2" dia to the same size as the cs.

"Around 1931" according to the A>Z, Spec 101L, at which point they also changed from Split shell mains to bushes.

My 104M has a 2" crank, but that's the crank - it doesn't necessarily mean the big ends are different sizes. I simply don't know what size my big end is...

I know the conrods got different part numbers around that time, will have to tear mine apart and have a measure
