Default Spec 11 Lister D

Hi all, after finding this D type on a farm over a year ago I have got it going. When I found it, it was very rough with most of the parts missing and it was seized. The farmer said it hadn't run for 50+ years. After getting it dated it was supplied on the 10th February 1928
The suction carb was broke, exhaust was missing, parts of the governor were missing, the magneto and couplings were also missing, there was no fuel tank and the straps and fuel pipe were also broken. It took a long time to find the missing parts as I wanted all of them to be original. Here are some photos to show it when I got it and a video of it now
