    hi all, i have a bmc 1800 in my nb, the instrument panel is very old and i`m not sure if the temperature gauge is very accurate, its reading around the 87 degree mark on average, does this seem about right, many thanks

    leaking fuel ?

    hi all,we just got back from a weekend away and while sorting out the stern tube greaser i noticed a puddle of oil under the engine BMC 1800 so i checked the oil level when the engine cooled down and there was no drop in level,so that left water or diesel,i dipped my finger in to find it was diesel,i then ran my hand under the fuel pump and it came back with diesel on it,so my question is, is there something or somewhere i should check first ? many thanks in advance

  9. this happened yesterday (Sunday) i wanted to retro fit a double power socket on the 240 v system on my nb, a socket with the usb chargers on,my plan was to locate the cable and cut it at the site for the socket,simples,so i turned off the power at the mains, the consumer unit, then to make sure there was no power i tried a couple of sockets to make sure they were dead no probs,then i got my snips and cut through the cable, a big bang followed and a puff of smoke, i was still in one piece but well surprised, any body no why this would happen with the power off,?? many thanks
