I just purchased a Lister TR2 Genset and got it home and set up with no load. When I first crank it, it smokes quite badly and runs really rough. After about 40 seconds to a minute it runs clean and smooth. I also noticed when I go to shut it off by the shut off valve it starts to smoke and if I release it back to the end of its spring I can see the shut off valve move further to the right to a kind of detent and it is smooth again. I am sure this is not common and I am looking for a solution to this minor problem. I am new to both diesel and Lister in particular. I would also like to find out what generator this has on it. The numbers have been painted over but I can make out 10 KW and 240 and a 2 and a 1800. Any ideas for a model number or pointers on how to maintain or service this unit would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Roger

As for your painted over numbers, the 10kW is 10,000 Watts or 10 kilowatts, the 240 is probably 240 Volts , the 2 would probably be 2 phase or 120 x 2 being 240. The home wiring is usually 120 V on 1 phase with 2 phases you can add the voltage like for a electric clothes dryer which would be 220-240V. the 1800 is rpm, the engine produces the 10kW at 1800 rpm. According to the following weblink the engine can peak at 19kW at 2500 rpm. http://www.maesco.com/products/lp/lp_t/lp_t.html
