Hi all, I am new to this forum today. It seems as this is the place to give more details of my newly acquired Liner Roughrider.
There is a small plate with number 329016, but whether of not this is the maker's plate, or somebody's equipment number I don't know.
The engine is a Petters AVA1, No. 3170637
It has a 3 fwd and 1 rev gearbox, which seems OK.
The steering box reminds me of the one on a 1950 Healy I had, but could be memory confusion.
I will measure up against the data sheet shown earlier in this thread, but I think it must be the 15cwt model.
Any instructions covering the machine would be welcome. Hopefully I will get a loan of an AVA booklet, but any info welcome.
When I viewed it, it was started first swing. I had a couple of turns, but no luck. Yesterday my pal was here, and so he dropped the valve lifter when I said so, and it started at once. Today my wife flicked the lever, and again instant start.
So far I have done an oil and filter (Fram CG816PL, same as "Mini") change. Never seen a filter so filthy. I also replaced the fuel filter (Fram C11941PL). There was the remnant of an air filter, so I have fitted a paper filter (A Fram CA2667), with an alloy disc to close off the open end, and a hooked 1/4" threaded rod to hold it all together.
I have a fair bit of work lined up for it in conjunction with my JCB 801.4 of 1994 vintage.
