I just picked up a basket case of lister CS 3/1 parts, as I'm
going through it, I was wondering about building this engine as a 5/1.
It seems only the head, oil pump and injector are different. Is this an
option ? I don't have money to spend on 3/1 parts, but if anyone has
some bits going, I may still be interested. I don't intend to show this
engine, other than to my friends and family, but would like it to be of
use in my workshop. The major faults seem to be cylinder head, this one
is frost damaged, and having now got the crankshaft out, one bearing is
seized, opposite the gear side of the crankshaft. What are the bearing
bushes made out of, would it be feasible to make a two part bush, rather
than press it over the rusted, pitted part of the shaft. This and lots
more questions to come... As someone else pointed out (Peter) I could
end up with some really pretty garden flywheel ornaments.
