  1. Thank you all for your words .. Hunting a solution is still very much in progress. I really don't want to move the stove unless totally bullied into it by the regs (Guidance) A solution might be to fit a smaller stove and refurb the hearth ! Thank you again Andy
  2. Hi Rob Can I ask what stove that is at all ..... Just to compare sizes as an idea etc Andy
  3. Well After 14 Years service the time has come to replace my Stove The Boat yard have stated :- " The existing stove is currently fitted in the front starboard corner of the cabin and is very close to combustible materials (the step). It is also fitted with a steel flue pipe and on a stone hearth without an air gap between giving no thermal barrier. If you were to fit a new stove, the new stove would need to be fitted to manufactures regulations which states that the flue should be a double insulated type and also the hearth would need to be
  4. Hi Thank You reading I'm looking for a replacement pressure cap for my Webasto Thermo top C header tank .... Went over the side before I bought the boat ...Honest.... 🤔 No joy on eBay ...just the whole thing for £99.00 Any after sales equivalent that will fit 🤔🤔 Thank you again Andy
  5. Hi thank you for reading Any one got any suggestions for a plumber that can sort radiator issues in Church Minshull area One rad not working.... - Blocked valve ? Full drain / refill I have done it before..... but did not work out to well :-) Andy
  6. Hi all. Thank you for your replies..... It does seem to me that my guess figures seem to be about right :- Absorption Volt Charging = 14.6v Float Volt Charging = 13.5v All caused from my chasing an alternator fault on a reasonably sunny day and reading 14.4v on batteries making someone better versed than me suggest to check the Solar controller..... Just need to work out the panel buttons again now :-) Thank you again Andy
  7. Hi All Just a quick one as lots of conflicting information out there. Am revisiting my Solar MPPT regulator in the belief the Absorption and Float voltage settings are incorrect, I have maint free lead acids Numax XV31MF. My question is what should the Absorption and Float Charging voltages be. Absorption Volt Charging = 14.6v ?? Float Volt Charging = 13.5v ?? Thank you for reading Andy
  8. So just link each alternater straight to batteries. I should comment the rev counter isn't working either.... That comes from alternator too I think ?? Andy
  9. Hi All My Sterling AB12160 has stopped charging my batteries..... Or so it seems. No LEDS are on. No voltage detected on the ALT input Now the issue is the 2 x 80Amp Alternators are wired in to the A2B together to get 160Amps Could it possibly be one alternator failed a whilst ago and I didn't notice...... Now the second one has failed I have lost everything. Anybody any experience of this or similar? Thank you for reading Andy
  10. Back at boat soon Can check out Thank you all Andy
  11. Hi If that is the case the grub screws aren't anywhere near close. I am thinking now they are there just to adjust the slack on the tiller. I can liken the scenario to a M10 bolt in a M16 Nut if that makes sense Andy
  12. Hi Steve So the grub screws should be tight onto the shaft ? BR Andy
  13. Ok . So today nipped up both the grub screws as found hiding under the grease. Still a fair bit of play left though.... How tight should they be on the inner shaft ..... It looks to me as if they have never butted up tight. That is assuming they should be ?? Andy
  14. I hope the grub screws will sort the issue. 10 years of owning the boat was not aware of them at all. Always learning :-) Thank you again all Andy
