  1. Past hour
  2. I am sure that you are most likely correct but I think the OP may not fully understand his system or if he is correct about a fuel pump, and he may well be, it's non-standard after market part. I want him to try to make sure he knows what he has and how it works because if he calls an engineer out for any problem that crops up it is going to very inconvenient and it will really cost him

  4. About what I was expecting. Under such circumstances going down is a great advantage. Going down Camp Hill post lockdown we put the boat a lock and ran the contents of the pound we'd just left past it and into the empty pound we were heading for.

  6. You sure that you have no leak? It could be that the valves inside are leaking back. Altering the pressure by the screw in the end will do nothing to solve this.

  8. Not familiar with this set up but as a temporary measure could the return be channelled into a catch tank as seen on many older engines? At least it would pin down if that were the problem.
  9. On this day in 1978 Delph (BCN) Dudley Canal No 1 Compare #2880 (1995) #2648 (1997) #5597 #5614 (2000) #2309 (2001) #2029 (2002) #3144 (2008) #1131 (2011) #3532 (2017) #2236 (2018)
  10. I think we were about 1st boat down last August when they finally lifted their lockdown, loads of rubbish and little water.
  11. Any idea why this keeps cycling even after taps turned off? It works fine but when I turn taps off it keeps running but not at same Iintensity as when I have taps on. Checked filter bowl, ok and can’t find any leaks? Could it be the pressure switch and can I adjust it?
  12. I like boating in Birmingham and I have fond memories of sitting on the roof of the boat listening to a James Last concert in the "arena". The tickets were all sold but we enjoyed it more sitting on the boat with glass in hand than we might have dome if we had been inside. haggis
  13. If you're likely to be on and off the boat regularly it will most likely desert the nest before viable chicks hatch, we had that happen twice on our old mooring. If that's the case i wouldn't hesitate to either persuade it to move on with activity in the area or remove it before too advanced. It isn't being mean to move it on before laying as the potential brood will have a better outlook somewhere more suitable, and their nests tend to be wiped out regularly by wash, flooding and level changes. As others have said, they will also attract the attention of predatory species in such an op

  15. Glad we went by last week! By way of contrast, we came under bridge 57 on the Leicester line, which was semi-demolished by a truck last week, and didn't so much as touch any submerged brickwork. If we can float in the bridge 'ole most folks can. The plan is to escape the madness towards Leicester and the Soar, then down the Trent. I'd not be surprised if we're the first boat for a long time beyond Kilby Bridge, so who knows what awaits us there. MP. ETA. Swanley No 1 lock on the Llangollen has failed today as well, according to the stoppages. More hire base
  16. I want to put lockshield valves on my calorifier as well, so I can balance the flow and avoid short-cycling if necessary. The calorifier has 22mm compression fittings. However the lockshield valves that I find are all designed to screw directly into radiators. Does a 22mm elbow with a suitable valve exist? Or should I rather use a normal 22mm elbow and an inline gate valve to control the flow? (something like https://www.toolstation.com/made4trade-gate-valve/p16924)

  18. Thanks for all the replies. Been looking about the house today and have some 18mm steel tube I can use although not as long as I'd like. Is it ok to have just enough to reach the bottom of the tank or have people needed to 'search about' in the tank when siphoning? I thought if it just stays in one place then eventually it would pickup all the water (and bits also being 18mm wide) - I'd cut castle shapes or an angle in the bottom of the pipe so it sits flush to the tank floor its still effective... does that make sense??

  20. Well that did not go to plan. We were a bit late getting off, and came out of the marina at about 2pm, only to find that someone has just lifted one of the top gates at Calcutt top lock out of the cup, so the gate is sitting on the cill. CRT are there and are going to try and lift it with a trolley jack, but not guaranteed to work in which case they will need to get a crane in tomorrow morning. We decided not to wait and see what happens, and have gone down towards Stockton, and will try going up Calcutt in the morning. Calcutt marina have 10 hire boats going out tomorrow, and I

  24. The standard oil drip stoves (Refleks, Kabola etc) do not need a pump, it is one of their advantages. However,when used with the optional heat exchanger coil to supply heat to external radiators, they need a pump if the CH circuit is not capable of circulating the water without one. As I said in my earlier post, the most likely fault is that the supply tube is blocked and liberal use of the scraper rod will clear it. If it is not that, then the filter under the stove may be blocked (or the optional inline filter if fitted), or the thermocouple overide button may not be
