Lister TS TR Parts Availability:
Routine Service Items
-- 100% availability. If ordering, please note the following first:
Just one type -- as easy as it gets.

There are several different air filter sizes used on the T series, primarily divided between the 'pancake' type filter element and cylindrical elements.
If you can see a part number on the existing element, that will do fine. If not, for pancake types pleas advise outside diameter, inside diameter and height (of the elment, not the housing).
For cylindrical types, diameter and length, plus inside diameter at each end of the element. Some heavy duty applications may have an inner and outer cylindrical element.
--- Near 100% availability.
Where fitted, the TL uses charge windings fitted within the flywheel and a regulator mounted close by the flywheel housing.
There have been changes both of supplier and design over time. If you think you need replacement parts we will want to know how many
terminals on the regulator (a photo is handy) plus the engine number. Some combinations are obsolete and an effective repair may include flywheel removal.
Our experience is that generally all the flywheel charge systems leave something to be desired and are prone to various failings. We are able to supply test data
if you wish to check where your problem may be.
It is important not to run the engine with the battery out of circuit and any evidence of oil within the flywheel housing should be investigated
as it has a detrimental effect on the charge windings insulation and function.
No problem. Just need to know if one or two fitted.
Clutch / Couplings
T series used for propulsion (e.g. dumpers) will have a conventional automotive pattern clutch assembly.
Please confirm size before ordering as different plant manufacturers may have chosen a different specifications.
We are hearing reports that some currently supplied carbon face thrust bearings are failing prematurely due to suspect origin / quality; we are able to offer a roller bearing alternative if preferred.
Couplings: Numerous patterns of coupling have been used and generally supply is not a problem. A photo is handy if you are not
sure what type you have.
Just one type for the TL series; the current part directly replacing any earlier units.
No problem; just one pattern listed.
No problem at all.
No supply issues but there were modifications and supplier changes over time, so any numbers off your existing units are helpful.
For optimal running we recommend replacing injectors in sets rather than have a mix of units from different suppliers.
Fuel Injection Pumps
No supply issues. Various changes of suppliers over time. If you're not sure what you are doing
with these pumps, the job is best left to a person with suitable experience, as removal and refitting inevitably involves checking
both the injection timing and balance between pumps. Note that the links between the pumps are relatively delicate items
and should be handled with care. If the current available item is from a different manufacturer,
we recommend fitting as a set.
Fuel Lift Pump
Pump suppliers changed over time
and for early engines fitted with an original pump, some pipework modification may be required, as early pattern pumps are not to be had.

Becoming scarce and expensive. If you have issues with your existing unit we are happy to look at refurbishing it,
or supply appropriate bearings.
Gaskets and Joints
100% availabilty; sets or individually.
As a close relative of the TR, parts availability of the majority of components is good. There are some differences however, so it's never a bad idea
to call and check first before commencing work.
Due to the relative scarcity of core units we are not generally able to offer rebuilt units from stock.
We do sometimes have good used TX available, or are happy to look at rebuilding your own unit.
