    Grimlysheepish,

    If you don't mind, would it be ok if I also sent a picture of your engine with the e-mail I'm sending to David Edginton? I feel it would be more beneficial to gather all I can on the subject of the 2-Stroke Lister.

    Thanks, Dan.

    I now have some pics of my engine and have tried to attach them, but it tells me the image file is invalid!
    I read that You have found no marks on your engine, have close look around the top rim of the barrel, you might find what I believe to be the serial number stamped there.

    Grimlysheepish,

    Which barrell do you mean? The top of the water cooling barrell or the top of the cylinder?
    I'm guessing you mean the top of the cylinder as I don't have a cooling barrell.

    Thanks, Dan.

    steammad,

    Sorry, yes I meant the cylinder. My engine is an ongoing restoration. No original carb, mag, governors, exhaust or tanks. But they are in hand.
    It will live again.

    Great pictures, thanks for putting those up. I will send those images along with my own to David Edgington and see if I can find some information.
    It shall live again! Well I hope all the components are orignialon my engine. The amount of wear seems to suggest so.

    Thanks, Dan.

    Fascinating. Now there are three. Any more?
    The division of the flywheel face suggests a development engine.....

    cheers

    Just seen this thread, it's definitely a Lister (or badged as Lister) as I have seen one on a Lister-Light gen set in one of my original Lister sales brochures.
    I will find it and post a scan of it....

    That would be really good thanks Andy.
    I have looked around the rim of cylinder head and around the rim of the crankcase and there is definately no markings there.

    Thanks, Dan.

    Thats a really intereting piece Andy; I can't however seem to figure out how one of these engines would have been started. Do you have any idea?

    Thanks, Dan.

    ....could be electric start back through the dynamo, rope start or a flick of the flywheel?

    I have contacted David Edgington and he has said more or less the same thing, either dynamo start or a starting handle.

    Thanks, Dan.

    Looks like they were trying to beat the likes of Stuart Turner in the small 2 stroke generator market.

    Cheers Steve

    It looks like there is a shaft on the non drive end of the dynamo, so I assume it was started from there like the Stuart Gennys, was probably electric start too at a guess
