  1. What problems are you getting, Adam? I'm guessing the engine stops and you have to wait half an hour before it will start again? The engine has a massive fan built into the flywheel - much bigger and more powerful than any blower you will put in. If that doesn't cool it, there's a significant problem somewhere. I haven't come across an effective blower set up yet If you give Sue a ring on 01926 356200, she will help you identify the engine (she does a lot of that) and can give you some idea of what might be going on Richard

    Sue here, I make Boat Curtains. Primrose bespoke furnishings. email sue[at]primrose-furnishings[dot]co[dot]uk. In Warwickshire but I can make them from measurements, and I can get samples sent to you to check on the boat. Email me for links to the companies I have accounts with to see if there is anything you like. Sue
  3. If it doesn't work, it's more likely the reverse band has gone. You've got forward so the forward clutch is OK. You've got neutral so the pump is working and pulling the clutch out against the springs. We have bands in stock Richard Richard
  4. That's one of the things the timing tool does
  5. I have a timing tool, if that helps Richard
  6. Could always bump start it I guess...
  7. It is also hand start, which makes it a challenge for use in a boat
  8. Splendid, we specialise in the repair of old Lister engines. If you want an idea of what that might cost, give Sue a ring on Monday. 01926 356200 Richard
  9. The obvious solution would be to remove the engine. What engine is it? Richard
  10. That's my thought too. I'm interested to see what the old rods are like Richard
  11. Flush it through a few times in alternating directions to make sure it isn't blocked. Also flush the tank out as much as you can If the boat has a skin tank you don't really need a heat exchanger. I presume the rubber pump rotor is OK? Richard
  12. It needs violence to remove it - and be careful. The cap will probably be OK, if you strain the heat exchanger you'll make the tubes leak, and the shell is alloy and probably corroded. Don't be surprised if the flanges come off Why do you want to dismantle it? Richard
  13. Fuel pump door joint. If you are lucky, we have some old 'card' ones about which are far easier to fit Richard
  14. Makes a change. Usually I find old Lister masquerading as other old Listers due to parts being swapped around
