March 2008 After helping Roger picking up a Petter M, we were offered a Lister D block which was on its way to the scrap yard. I have used my first Lister D as a donor engine and swapped over all the components over to the second engine. The second Lister D has been to 2-3 shows a season for the last two years.


2011 Rally Season The early part of this season has been a challenge. The Lucas RS-1 magneto has failed, despite the best efforts of Roger and myself to get it going again. Mid season the engine was damaged along with Rogers 2 hp Lister D when the trailer they where being transported on overturned, requiring repairs to both engines. My engine has suffered a bent crankshaft as a result of the accident. The magneto has been temporally replaced using the Lucas SR-1 magneto from Charlies engine, and ran well all day long.

30/03/12 In preparation for the 2012 season, I modified the trolley, replacing the tube steering axle which had got bent as a result of the accident with a solid ridge axle.

April 2012 I have decommissioned the engine, using the head and all periferals to build up the 1953 block.
