Default Lister. J. H

Hi finally got the chance .to take the lister to a rally after all the work done to it .having so many of its parts missing .and being seized it
ran rely well thumping away. only stopped when it ran out of fuel.
i managed to load it into my van with a block and tackle attached to a scaffold frame in the middle of the van. and four scaffold boards.
regards
crank

Invest in a winch and some decent ramps/channels.

Nice job on the engine!

Aye Chris, ramps and winch are the way to go! I couldn't manage without mine now. The Lister is a good fit in your van as well, but, as Peter said, a nice job.

Pete.

The aluminium extrusion channels we use have taken all of our big engines with no problem, and although not cheap to buy they have lasted very well indeed.

5000lb electric winch in the big trailer, 2000lb hand winch in the four-wheel trailer.

Both are fixed in place when loading, loose ramps are dangerous!

Hello all
Yes, great job on the not so common Lister. Is there a video of it running?
It is so satisfying when they run for a day and stop only when there's no more fuel to burn.

I absolutely agree about the winch. Get a good one now and save your body, mind, knuckles and temper. I only use the winches with brakes on them now. If you need to go backwards for any reason, it's just a matter of winding backwards. They're so convenient. The little extra cost is forgotten once you use it twice. I also use a flat nylon strap and not wire rope as well.

Cheers Scott
