The rings could possibly be sticking in the piston grooves also because of all the carbon built up from no service... i took off the bottom plate and washed out the sump and oil strainer also. It also had no diesel or air filter.. if you ran a modern engine like that it'd be seized long ago... thoes Petters and Listers took serious abuse as most got little maintenance!!!

Hmm yes indeed a classic case of over maintenance NOT; some people just don't care they perhaps buy a machine for one job thinking that if they get that one job out of it then it's paid for itself and anything extra is a bonus.
At least you are making some headway with it let us know how you get on. :thumbup:

That cartridge is more intact than the one we pulled out of ours...at that point it had been in the family for 35 years without being touched...that must be 15 years ago now, perhaps I should take over maintenance duties...

Hi all.. does anyone know how to identify the year of manufacture of a Petter PH1 using the information from the data plate on the top of the engine... does a higher number mean its newer ? My number is 16895 ... Any help appreciated... Ronan..

Hi Ronan, one would have thought that David Cornwallis might be able to help with dating the engine?

Hi Ronan.

David Cornwallis looks to be the best bet on this one. I have found a PH parts list on his website and on page 2 it shows the engine ID plate with the engine number and the first two digits which signify the year. Something sticks in my mind to ascertain the year you add 50 on to the number. So if the two digits are 36, the engine would have been built in 1986. I may be barking up the wrong tree on this as I had very little to do with Petter engines in my time at Savilles who were agents for Lister-Petter.

I hope this helps.

Neil. (v1230nm)
