I think they've all got that tag. A Lister CS diesel. Can't remember what the "Listard" refers to.

I had no idea, but google tells me "LISTARD is the Van der Horst patent process for chrome plating cylinder liners".

And as Jarrod says, it seems common on Listers.

I got a Lister JP3 once was under the 1974 floods,cylinders full of water for six months,chrome bores were still perfect........Lots of UK diesels had chrome bores......Ford tractors especially,but Leylands and Perkins also had chrome bores.

Lister has used this "Listard" process on the diesels for a very long time. Has worked well on my CD 8hp high speed tropical engine. Never knew the origins of the process only read it on Lister engines.

I wonder if it is a combination of the word "Lister" and a term for a person whose parents were not married. That word starts with"Bast" :evil: :woohoo:
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Does everyone know what the CS stands for and how it works.? Excellent engines. If that one in the pictures is for sale for
$600 and turns over with compression , it is worth that sort of money. They just keep going and as smooth an engine you will hard pressed to find a smoother one. Very lucky to own one . Easy starting and economical runner. With those twin
flywheels they had no trouble running 4 stand shearing plants.

Crankhandle is there too..........Listard is a combination of Lister and Hard chrome.......the bore is plated with a porous coating of chrome to hold oil.....a plain chrome will seize and score the rings for lack of oil.........I once put new rings in a JP4 in a compressor ......chrome is too hard to hone normally,and the new rings had zero compression and the engine wouldnt start......so I got a motorbike to run on the flywheel ......the engine poured smoke and went through many gallons of oil,spitting it out the exhaust........eventually it settled in ,and could be hand started.
