    Gentlemen,

    Can someone confirm the valve clearance of a Lister D is 13 thou as I cant find my manual at the present.

    Hi Martin,
    The excellent book 'Lister D-Type Restoration' produced by SEM,on P34 states 'The valve or tappet clearance should be .031 for both valves when the engine is cold'.I believe that this was later revised to 5-10 thou'.
    I hope that this helps.
    All the best,
    Kev.

    Thanks, I've set it to 0.013 and ran till nice and hot with no problem, you could drive a bus through 0.031 :D just had to replace a big end so its had a mini overhaul.
