Is the oil level going up and does the oil feel thin & smell of diesel?


All those air cooled Listers have a nasty habit of leaking fuel into their oil and that can cause partial seizure that causes the engine to stop when it drops to tickover.

Thanks tony if it happens again I shall try this 

Paul J no restriction to the air at all 

Aah well-thought Id try the cheapest possibility first .

The next time I came across this problem the engine actually had no oil in it. That was several years ago and as far as I know the owner is still happily chugging about with it ? Robust engines them..
