    Has it gone out?

    Lollypop stick on the ecofan
  2. Was moored in aston marina ,it has a jd3 engine if i remember .
  3. Yes dave ,alan said you did the paint work .it made the front cover of a boat mag in 95 which was given to me not sure if you did the repaint (not sure what year that would have been .
  4. My orion was launched feb 95 at brockmoor.it was then sailed to ashwood for final fitout so must of been one of the last few to be built there.im the 2nd owner but the original owner gave me launch photos and full history .i brought the boat via richard brokerage and he gave a lot of time explaining the orions build design etc .
  5. Well my dearest would have words if i didnt I also have to close the lid .hard life
  6. Hi Im getting a small leak on the toilet (but getting worse )from the doughnut seal,i changed the seal on my 2 cassettes a few weeks ago which stopped the leak but after a couple of weeks it started again .i use silicon spray on the rubber and the flange where the seal joins the loo to casette is clean.i can only think there is wear on the cassette or bowl stopping the meeting faces being tight.any thoughts please .the toilet is 6 years old not sure about cassettes but proberly 3 years old and on there 2nd seal o think
  7. As already said look for a change over switch to divert inverter power over to shore ,a lot of boats wired this way including mine.
  8. On the link you have then click at the bottom page ...information /sitemap / cal conections .not sure how to post a link but it says between mixer and output to taps .
  9. Surecal recommend fitting after mixer and my expansion tank is like that.
  10. As you have the durite gauge it may have a y fitting with both the oil warning light switch and the larger gauge sender .as said its near the dipstick
  11. New sender unit required ,its sounds like its working at low revs / lower pressure but cant handle the slighly higher pressure reading .i had the same setup that played up last year

    Weed Hatch

    A friend of mine had to have his hatch made taller as recomened by survey when he brought the boat .it was on his list of things to do before he nearly sunk her when he had lots of friends visit an sitting on cruiser stern.put the job on his asap list after that
  13. Depends on alternator output i think .

    I could google answers to a lot of posts but i would have no experence to back it up or filter the errors,i didnt put my post very well so i will shut up

    When i look at treads i can sort of guess who speaks from experience and those that answer from google with all the technical facts and figures that few could ever remember or now about .but that info can be wrong or misguided which is easily found out when you are researching a sibject.just saying .
