Information and advice for fitting. The result is a strong, well built 12 volt electric start system which is totally independent of the volt alternator fitted to the engine unlike the original Start-O-Matic sets.
This has the added benefit of making electric start available to non genuine Lister Start-O-Matic engine owners and genuine Lister engine owners without the Start-O-Matic setup fitted to their engine.
We have carried out rigorous testing of the new components and are pleased to report superb results. The starter motor used is strong enough to turn over single cylinder engines under compression and manages a twin cylinder when decompressed with little extra effort. The kit of parts required to equip an engine with electric starting will depend upon the engine configuration and manufacturer which will be explained in greater detail shortly.
The following list however is all parts which are available and may be required. Adjustable Starter motor mounting bracket available as either standard left hand or special right hand mounting Flywheel ring gear. To understand exactly which parts will be required for your engine type further explanation is required of the different engine balancing configurations. Firstly it must be understood that the electric start kit requires a special flywheel to be fitted to at least one side of the engine, this flywheel carries the ring gear and meshes with the pinion of the starter motor.
Please read the following sections for each of the engine configurations and apply which explanation suits your engine best. This type of CS engine relied upon the balancing for the engine being incorporated into the flywheel. The spoked type of flywheels had an extra lump cast into them which was degrees offset from the crank pin. Look at the picture to the right; you can see in the bottom left corner the flywheel has an extra lump of material cast into the flywheel.
For those with the Start-O-Matic style of flywheels thinking that yours do not have an extra weight cast into them a clever method was employed to achieve the same effect but by basically reversing the principle. Instead of adding a weight degrees from the crank pin some of the flywheels weight was removed from the same side as the crankpin. Look at the second picture to the right and you will see the flywheel has three holes in it. The two kidney shaped holes cancel each other out and are there purely to provide a handy place to hold the flywheel when mounting it to the engine, for our purposes we can ignore these for now, but looking at the small round hole you can see that because this is in the same position as the crankpin assuming the engine is in bottom dead centre it will have the same effect as the method above but has achieved it in a reverse manner.
From this we can deduce that fitting either a single or a pair of new style TLB plain flywheels to the engine is going to alter the engine's balancing and cause problems. There are several solutions to the problem. This could be achieved by bolting a weight onto the flywheel or if you have machining facilities a neater solution may be to copy the SOM type mentioned secondly.
New Style Indian Lister copy with spoked flywheels and old style crankshaft. If your engine falls into this category then basically you have the same options as for the previous engine type unless you are really lucky. It may well be worth considering what type of crankshaft main bearings and carriers you have fitted to your engine though before ordering any parts.
If you have the old style bush bearings however you are no better off. New Style Indian Lister copy with plain flywheels and a balanced crankshaft. Important points to note. Stationary Engine Parts Ltd cannot guarantee the exact suitability of the items available for all engine types.
India currently has many engine assemblers producing engines with very subtle differences. How do I order the parts required? Once you have worked out what parts that are going to be required for your engine configuration please feel free to order online by adding the required items listed below to your basket. Please note that the flywheels are not a stock item and must be pre ordered for delivery on our next available routine import. A good quality 12 volt battery charging alternator which has been selected for its reliable performance.
The alternator is rated at a maximum output of 43 amps and is supplied with a drive pulley pre mounted and suitable fixing bolts. Quality aluminium bearing shims, available in three thicknesses to allow for the fine adjustment of your Lister CS crankshafts end float. Particularly useful for anyone wishing to convert their genuine Lister engine to the taper roller bearing system as this conversion necessitates the shimming up of the bearing carriers away from the crankcase by approximately 0.
Two types are available, small for the old style engines with four mounting studs points on the tear drop shaped bearing carrier and large one for the Indian variants usually found on engines fitted with taper roller bearings using bearing carriers with five mounting stud points.
These shims should ideally be interspaced between gaskets of the same type made from paper which are supplied in our gull gasket sets or they can be used without paper gaskets if every layer is bonded with a jointing compound such as the Chemico jointing cement which can be found here http: The cookie settings on this website are adjusted to allow all cookies so that you have the very best experience.

A single very heavy and solid plain flywheel which has been cast to our own design and machined to enable the use of our 20" ring gears. Notify me when this item is back in stock.
A high quality 20" ring gear manufactured in India by Leyland Ashok. This ring gear has been sourced specifically for use in our electric starting kits but could be used with other engines if required. Qty Out of stock. For use with the Lister CS electric start mounting bracket these starter motors have been selected with care ensuring they are well made and strong enough to turn the Lister CS type engine over under compression. This starter motor bracket has been designed from scratch in the UK specifically for Stationary Engine Parts and is very different from any previous bracket produced in India for the CS engine.
Whilst India has produced starter motor brackets for the CS engine before they have been castings which have relied upon the bearing carrier studs as a fixing point, this poor practise has led to all manner of failures and problems.
The SEP bracket is very different utilising the crankcase inspection cover studs as its fixing point which has proved to be a much stronger and more reliable solution. We have put a lot of thought into this bracket and have designed it to have the added benefit of a threaded sliding adjustment which enables the accurate mesh alignment of the starter motors pinion with the ring gear.
Once the correct position has been reached by adjustment of the jacking bolts the bracket can be securely locked into position by tightening the four bolts. The compact hinged front control box assembly consists of a strong metal box with drilled base for secure bracket fixing, a charging current meter, indicator light, key switch and general wiring.
