    Hi all,
    On a quest for some bits for a Lister A type im fixing, parts i need are obviously unnobtainable new and hoping someone has a dead 1 thats not going to go again.
    I would like a cam lobe/shaft if possible.
    Outer cam bush has worn out and worn cam a funny shape and angle.
    Not sure would a B type be the same?
    If you can help, let me know!
    Cheers, Ted.

    Has it also worn the cam followers a funny shape?

    Yes, very odd wear pattern, not surprising if you heard the racket it was making!
    Hopeing to get away with surface grinding them depending how deep the hardening is. All through lack of lubrication to outer bush, cam was running at an angle, bush is well worn out!

    I'll check my shelves. I may have all the bits you need.
    I have the shaft with gear and cam. Cam is the right shape though a little pitted but should serve. Also have the followers, also a little pitted and the cover with bush. If you want them I'm near Exeter. Where are you?

    That would really help out, really dont want to buy a working/restorable engine to rob for bits as it would then turn it to scrap and ruin the chance of it for someone else.
    Heres the rub, im on a fascist run rock surrounded by the most expensive stretch of water on earth! Aka The Isle of Man.
    I should be ok for bush and cover thank you, i have a freindly engineer who is going to make some bushes and cover is ok as bush wasnt worn right through. A bit of surface pitting on cam and followers wont be an issue, certainly better than the scrap i have here!
    Cant thank you enough.
    Ted.

    Thank you Roland. Royal mail is usually best bet for small things here, they dont charge any more than uk price,couriers really extract the urine here and take a week or more to get stuff here. Its a real effort getting stuff here, it would be easier and cheaper to send stuff to the moon. Ive just ordered some rings and gaskets it needs so should be good back in 1 peice again. If you let me know how much you need for the parts and postage, il get it sorted this week for you.
    Thanks again, Ted.
