Very nice engines but considered common where I'm from, my first engine was a lister d, had it years and still love watching it run. S am totally confused!!!!!!!!!!! John Ross] Hi John, I've just been going back through some old posts to see what I had missed. Not been here for a while Did you solve the mystery of this engine?
The fact that it is direct drive gives us the biggest clue. The change from direct drive to chain drive took place in March Therefore your engine predates that. I would suggest that the plate is from another D. All this is fine but it doesn't solve the great dating profile headline examples. However we may be able to get a little closer by other features of the engine.
Did you ever get the book that was referred to in the other posts? Things like the position of the oil filler; tank location and its mounting and the tanks physical size; rocker cover breather type; position of the inspection plate cover. Casting numbers can engies a great help. Only too pleased to help further if required.
