What a great day today, lovely and sunny so thought I`ll get the old Lister D out. Oiled and greased, cleaned the plug, water in the hopper, put some petrol in the tank, primed the carb, one turn of the handle and away she goes. Stands back (smug mode) and admires engine. Could`nt imagine a modern engine starting straight away after standing in a corner of an old shed for seven months, mind you the Lister is only seventy six years old ! My have`nt we come a long way from then. ahem. Best regards Pete.
