Default Another Lister D spec 11

Hello all

I have had this lister for some time now in the collection. Its starting to smoke bad and drip oil from the exhaust. Rings must be shot. Point off all of this is looked at the spec plate spec 11DRS. It has a screw in oil filler,governer to the far right,shaft drive mag,early breather. BUT normal D shaped fuel tank. Has somone changed the tank And wouldent that mean a new head aswel to mount the tank straps or will both fit ? Or is this a lister factory refit. I think it has been back to lister or somwhere because it has a 020thow oversize piston ring tag on it.

What no is cast into the head.

I think You can make out 1/1062 in the clip, so it has a later head.

Hi Williams8781, I also have a spec 11 which I am slowly restoring and it has 'Ricardo Patent' written on the side of the head.
I also see from youtube that you have a nice Lister G1. I picked one up a few months ago but missing radiator and fuel tank so I might ask you for some dimensions sometime if you still have it.

Thanks Philip

Sorry chaps for the slow reply. Still havent had time to swing in a look at the no. I don't remember it having the ricardo patent head on it. But if it is the later head then i would have to change it if i want to fit the proper tank ? Thanks Phill and happy to help with measurements of whatever you want on the lister G

I don't know how far you want to go with changing the head to a spec11 type, but the tank is not bolted on to the side of the ricardo type and is mounted on a bracket which is part of the starting handle sleeve casting. Also the carburettor has no float chamber because the tank is low mounted. Have you contacted Doreen Edgington for the date of manufacture and early history of the engine, it is possible it could have been returned to the factory for changes - otherwise I think someone has made one engine out of two.

Regarding the G1, I would like to know the dimensions of the fuel tank and radiator (height width and length) to give me some idea of what I'm looking for.

My 1929 500 rpm spec 11 has both the Ricardo head and high mounted tank though, apparently a Winget requirement for certain applications.

Is that with a spoked flywheel as well, or am I just seeing things as it looks large diameter?
I did wonder if the later spec11's had the second style tank or not.
