    From the Calcutt site it would appear that they are and I have used an MGB rocker cover gasket on my !.5.

    Toyota RAV 4 Hybrid would fit the bill . I've had mine two years and nothing has gone wrong [tempting fate ] .

    Toilet Paper

    I suspect that the majority of toilet paper gets used by the ladies to dry their fanny . Provided you are not wanting to start your fire using it then it would burn no problem.

    Homeless on a cold night.

    I remember my Dad coming home from the pub in the 50's with a copy of the War Cry or Young Soldier I think it was called . The Salvation Army were well thought of in our house as I had an uncle who was a prisoner of war and I recall my Mum saying how much help the Salvation Army had been to him.
  11. Charlie Fox at March fitted out my narrowboat 32 years ago and used an upturned wine bottle as an expansion vessel . I've never replaced it and it still works fine . It is a while since I looked but I think it was a German white wine bottle definitely not champagne .

    Gas locker paint.

    I wire brushed the rust off and then gave a coat of Vactan followed by a coat of Hammerite. No sign of rust returning so far.
  13. I hope it is a leaking head gasket that is causing your overheating . I have a BMC 1.5 diesel in my boat and was having problems with it overheating . It wasn't the head gasket it was the skin cooling tank that was too small for use on rivers.

    Insurance survey costs

    I was quoted £450 for a full insurance survey on my 45 foot narrowboat earlier this year . That did not include a lift out.

    Is there still the huge amount of Swan / Goose / Duck poo on the embankment at Peterborough ?
