  1. Thanks Sir Nibble, it seems of have sorted the problem out. Oil pressure was fine as I knew it always it was, having done oil changes every 250 hours for 8 years!! 25 times by my calculations! Nipper
  2. As i said in my message. I have already changes the sender a couple of times over the 8 years I have had Largo and I have also changed the Gauge, which is in the control panel, with a new one from Beta. None of the changes worked for the alarm going off. Adjusting that brass screwy bit did!
  3. Over the last few years I have had this irritating problem with my Beta 50. I have changed the sender and changed the gauge a couple of times and was even convinced that the engine was at too slower tickover.. However, reading through the Beta service manual for the umpteenth time I have been made aware that there is an adjustment that can be done. So, I took out the gauge and there seemed to be a brass bit with a hole in it. Having had the problem for so long and that it was really starting to wind me up, I had to have a go! I managed to get a very small screwdriver to grip the side of this brass thingy. I gave it a turn, it moved, I turned it again to something like halfway around, reinstalled the gauge and during the last two weeks of cruising the oil alarm has not come on again. Tony will probably know what the brass thingy does, but it seems to have stopped my problem at the moment. Now if only i could cure the engine not starting when the key is turned, I'd be a happy man!
  4. Mmm! I was going to be joining em, but I think i'll give it a day or two!
  5. Looks like it don't pay to be over 65 in Spain and you have the virus!
  6. You mean the rowers that grimace at you when there passing, just because your there?

  9. We have moored at Middlewhich lots of times with no incidents except for two occasions. When moored on the visitors moorings above Wardle Lock I had a double glazed pothole window smashed while we were onboard, but the little scrouts were faster than me! I got hold of CRT local bods number and phoned several times, in the end i left a message and heard nothing at all, a total waste of time! The other occasion while on the moorings above the big lock, adjacent to the playing area. Someone trying to enter the rear of the boat around 2 in the morning while i was asleep, he even shone a torch in my eyes. I didn't report that incident thinking that he had had enough punishment when he saw me break through the rear doors like a rocket, naked and brandishing a large mooring pin. Nipper The mooring area shown in the bottom picture is used for the hire boats and is deemed to be theirs.!
  10. I don't think your giving your batteries enough charge. It takes my engine about 4 hours to replace yesterdays use! Somebody will come along shortly and explain better than i can! Nipper
  11. Thats the first thing i took out of Largo! It has no place in anyboat, especially mine! If one wants the bathroom tiles warmed, pour some hot water on em! Nipper
