I like your style Ian,

before your wife.
But it is your life.

Seems I am a poet and didn't know it.
Cheers and good luck with your lister.

Nice looking engine, they usually run sweetly too. Nice find.

Ian, I would put your engine as being sold in 1948, as I take it from " The Lister D Story" by David Edgington.

PS you don't have a spare straight crankshaft do you?

Hi all

My interpretation of the Spec 28D2H is:
28 means there have been 28 specification changes to this type of engine since first going into production.
The D is self explaining,the model type.
And the 2H = 2 up.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Cheers

Hi Ian

The best thing to do would be to email Doreen Edgington at Ddlwfl23@aol.com who should be able to not only date your engine but tell you to whom it was originally sold.
