It's not a bolt hole it's a hollow rocker shaft which allows the grease from the other end to get to the rockers, and it should have a press fit plug in the hole.

What about the hole above the carb and exhaust? To the left and slightly below the rocker?

Default lister d

thanks for your replies it was the bolt /stud hole between the carb and exhaust
was just wondering what it would be used for? i have another lister that has the same head D309 without the bolt hole, so many varieties with the lister d the sort of thing that would've been covered on Engine torque. in sem

thanks

I know nothing about D's, but could it be to do with a petrol/paraffin version ?
(or a reverse rotation one)

Short answer. No.

Unless it's for the vaporizer shield on a radiator cooled one but I think that fits on the manifold studs.

OK, assumption time .......

This is a Spec 17 engine. According to DWE's Lister D book some of these were fitted with the Solex 26FV carburettor, but later converted back to the Lister carb. There is no mention of this extra bolt hole in the book, but I wonder if it originally housed the peg onto which the threaded J speed control attachment fitted....

This is purely a thought, no proof offered.

I've been through my books and pictures and the Solex carburetor uses the same peg for the hook as does the standard carburetor, do you know where the engine went after manufacture as it could have a bearing on what the hole was used for.
