Great result.

Don't know if you have been on this site but there is a lot of info on old dumpers, manuals for Petters engines and complete units.

Cheers Lang, yes I do go there especially when I was trying to identify what make and model this one is. Met a bloke on the weekend with another dumpy and he doesn't know make or model of his one so I will go there and start a new thread on his.
Thank you for the 'heads up' appreciate it.
John

I had a heap of old dumpys rusting away,ended up selling all but two,one and a half actually,as one was bought for the motor .The one I kept is a Liner roughrider ,earlier version of humpy........It sat under a tree,in a tree actually,for more than 10 years while I was working away,but,I blew up the tyres ,cranked it over,and away it went......probably should change the oil one of these days.....They are a very handy jigger if you have a yard full of junk that the council periodically objects to. EDIT....I also had a little single cylinder Petter roller,gave it to my brother......surprisingly its in in very good condition despite being out in the open for 30 years...........he putts around his 10 acres with it.......when its very wet,his horses churn up the ground,and he rolls it flat again...............The chinese copies of dumpys are rubbish,and last about five minutes.....if you re lucky.

Up until quite recently you could still buy a new Petter PH1,...8hp,I think.Dont know if you still can,but they would be pricey anyway.....the Listers were like $6000 each new some years ago.........The Listers with the dish alloy rocker cover are English made,the ones with the flat pressed tin cover are Indian.........My favorite Listers were the old pre BA/HS water cooled ones ,especially the old JP 3 s and 4s with the compression change over valve in the head......Once had some Broomwade compressors with JPs in them........one ton motor putting out 40 hp.

Not sure if new are available now but the Listeroids and Petteroids are. We have a 8hp twin flywheel CD Lister out the back whic is up for sale soon. It just choofs away like nothing else. It was off a gen set and is a high speed tropical version that runs at 1800 rpm and has a radiator. It too has 2 compression ratios for running simply by lifting or dropping the de-compression lever.
