Lister Hr3 Manual
Hello, I just picked up what I think is an HR3 Lister engine from the scrap yard yesterday. I am building a homemade tractor out of an old Northwestern aircraft tug and was deciding on wether to use a Wisconsin V4 or a three or four cylinder diesel of some sort. I went to the scrap yard to see what got drug in and saw this complete looking diesel on a skid.

I thought it must be from the forties or fifties by the look of it, but from what I've seen on ther internet it's from the sixties or seventies. I paid $120 for it and I hope I can get it running. It was missing the air cleaner but had a rag stuck in the intake. I pulled the manifolds off this morning and there was a bit of dirt and bugs in the intake ports, I gave the valves a good squirt with Kroil. Does anyone here know where I could get an owners/shop manual for it? I will also be needing head gaskets and other gaskets depending on how far I need to get into it. Any suggestions on how to safely revive the injectors?
The fuel line has been cut and I suppose dirt or bugs may have wandered in over the years. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Hello I had an HR2 which when I first got the injector pumps were completely stuck, both the plunger and racks. After soaking in diesel and several other oils for weeks they still did not budge.
Honda 600rr Haynes Manual there. In the end I figured the pumps were past repair and tried heating them with a MAP gas torch. I tried to be as even as possible with heat trying to reduce hot spots and only heat up to about 200oC. After several goes of heating and quenching in diesel the pumps freed up and still happily run today. I am sure this is not a recommended practice and could possibly damage the pump but if you have nothing to loose it might be worth trying. I also have a copy of the HR2 workshop manual (thanks Roland) on PDF, if you send a PM with email I will send it to you.
There is not a lot of difference externally between the Lister H variants as the differences between the models is mainly bore and/or stroke, so unless you remove one of the cylinder heads to measure the bore and stroke you will need the engine number. What about the engine info plate, is it missing? If there is no plate don't worry, HR engines have the engine number stamped on the flywheel as well, sometimes this number is hard to see as the flywheels are painted and the paint does a good job of masking the stamped numbers. As this engine has the variable speed apparatus I think it will be an ideal choice for your home made tractor, here in the UK I have seen plenty of H range engines in mobile cranes, big dumpers etc. As they are a good powerful engine which will always start and keep going regardless of the often harsh conditions and neglect that machines in the field are subject to, personally, I prefer the sound of the 3 cyl to the 4 banger although a sweet running 6 cyl is just music.

Ok, the Lister HB models have a 4' bore and a 4 1/2' stroke compared to the 4 1/4' bore and 4 1/2' stroke of the HR model, the capacity of the HB3 is 2779 cc with power 39 hp @ 2200 rpm compared to the HR3 with 3138 cc and 49 1/2 hp @ 2200. Even though the HB3 is a slightly smaller less powerful engine than what you first thought it will still make a great engine for your home built tractor.
