Not really my cup of tea - just the 'I don't remember seeing that before' factor which caught my attention.

Lister A's aren't really my cup of tea either, I bought one this weekend purely because it came with a lovely (if rather rusty) iron tanked radiator...........turned out to be a B too I intend to mount it in a similar fashion to the one in your picture Nick, that is how it was mounted when the engine was on it's saw bench......

OK, had a word with the owner today. Yes, it is a genuine Lister rad and fitment (confirmed by DWE) and the engine is also reverse rotation. It was supplied in 1940 to the Air Ministry via Zwicky of Slough. Numbers are; A68S/RAD and the owner said he obtained it off of a beach where it worked a winch. Originally it was mounted on long RSJ's with a fuel pump and extended exhaust but they had gone when he came by it. There is an article and pics in the Engine Torque section of SEM, June 2003 apparently. It still retains some of the original light blue paint and Lister lettering.

There is also a guy attempting to dismantle one of the "Zwicky" pump sets on "Farcebook". Those pumps are pretty rare, hope he doesn't wreck it!!
I think that there would be room in the bowser for a rad-cooled engine.

Here is my B..



And its rather heavy radiator...





As can be seen, the tinware is a little worse for wear.

Hi Dan,

looks to be a lot like those used on the Generating/lighting sets.

I think Kev Buttle had an A type gen set of that style.
