Default Stationary engine

Some years back I bought a Indian made copy of the Lister CS 6hp stationary engine , a single cyl. diesel. First released around 1930 Lister built these way into the 1980's or beyond . Very popular engine and many Indian companies built copies of varying quality !

These Indian clones require a fair bit of fettling before they can be put into service. I had to machine up new parts . I made new block studs as the crappy Indian studs were way undersize and loose in the block. Also made a new cam idler gear shaft with an eccentric adjustment in order to adjust the gear backlash setup. The bronze idler gears shatter because of incorrect backlash .

Also did away with the silly paper shims and made up a solid shim for adjusting the crank bearings pre load .

Default clean

It is very important to check for left over casting sand inside anything made in India or China ! A good washout is done as a precaution ! The piston was rusty but new spares for these engines are plentiful and relatively cheap.

The heavy flywheels needed to be balanced , a long tricky process . Lots of info on the web about these engines, thankfully . A dedicated lister forum has much helpful info.

These engines are a cold start diesel, I think they were considered to be very innovative at the time of release. Some of the Indian clones use tapered roller crank bearings and some use the original setup with bronze bushes wchich have some small amount of end float
