    Hi, I have a lister D early one ser 82061 which has a Spring loaded Pressure release housing on the top of the rocker lid. The small spring is broken. Can you tell me where I might get a replacement, please or give me some spec for the spring?
    Many Thanks

    Antony,
    You could try Springmasters https://www.springmasters.com/ but they may only want to sell a minimum order. Still worth a try.
    You need the diameter of the wire of the coil, the inside diameter of the coil and approximate free length. Post these details here, and I may have a compression spring which will 'do'. Have you had your engine dated by Enginebooks - Doreen Edgington, and have you the Lister D Story book?

    Antony,
    If you go to a fastener company with the center pin they should be able to get a spring that you can cut down to suit your need.

    Antony,
    I have a spring to your specification but it is too long. I can cut it in half and then you can still make it to your required length.
    Any use?

    Hi Guys
    Can someone tell me how much the big end on my early D should move from side to side on the crank
    everything else it tight with no play bt the big end does move a lot sideways.
    I hope this makes sense

    Tony,
    I wouldn't worry about it, when the engines running the conrod will find its happy place, I have several D's and they all have the same movement.
