Re: Single cylinder petter

Sounds about right to me.
We call that "Murphies Law" if it can go wrong it will but when you do your best to improve something and then have it bite on the bum, that is not fair.

Re: Single cylinder petter

Looks like a good clean up around the linkages on the outside would not hurt either

Re: Thwaites 4000 lister ph2 black smoke

Great description on setting up the pumps and easy to follow instructions.
Hopefully he has the problem sorted as he says the filters and injectors are done.

Re: Which model Thwaites is this?

MY Liner Roughrider has a SR2 Lister and fortunately runs like a clock so I went the whole nine yards and a full service with all new filters, fuel, oil and air, new oil and I drained the fuel tank and put fresh fuel in before starting. I don't think that diesel goes off like petrol can but why risk...

Re: Which model Thwaites is this?

I would fit a ring to ALL ring glands. This will ensure that you get no marks from the skirt of the piston. It is there for a reason so I would find out if it should be an oil or compression ring in that position. I would guess an oil ring.

Re: Unknown dumper.

If your DVLA are anything like our RMS people the info should be very accurate. We can't look sideways here without it being passed and verified by the authorities. So re start your search here with that info and see what comes up. Nice to hear that the engine is in good working order. You would hav...

Re: Unknown dumper.

Is that a proper number plate or something the previous owners used for an I.D? If it is a number plate cross reference it with the authorities. The missing numbers appear as though they were a 95 but is tricky with it upside down. I now see that the writing on the bin is adverting for the previous ...

Re: Unknown dumper.

Welcome to this great forum Finley. Is there a clearer picture of the decal on the bin? That may also help identify your nice toy. Also look for an I.D. plate, on my Liner it was riveted onto the back panel below the bonnet. They could be attached in many different places on different makes. I am no...

Re: Benford vin missing help !!!

The ID plate was and still is missing from my Liner Roughrider and I found the chassis number stamped on the frame on the opposite side of the drivers seat (LHS) just behind the bin. It was buried under a gallon of paint. SO as you get to play with your Benford you just might find it when you least ...

Re: Which model Thwaites is this?

Yes, very glad you are heading in the right direction for sure. Start soaking your piston and gudgeon in automatic transmission oil to help free it up. Do a Google search for a company that either makes or supplies rings and you will be able to buy what you need. Here in Oz there are a couple of com...
