  1. Thanks for your reply I was thinking on giving the boat a good run to see what the indicator settles at or removiving filter and running it which should send it over to green to show it’s working.i have been looking at modern filters but as filters in pressure line it’s a 500 prm box runs at 23 bars I believe so most spin on ones are 10bar.i agree with the oil as it runs on engine oil it’s thick
  2. I have just got round to removing the filter bowl and the only markings is UCC 3.5i have carefully washed the filter and changed the box oil with the same oil I always do.i have ran the boat in gear for a while and the indicator is slightly in the red yet the filter seemed quite clean still trying to get a filter now I have seen it best price so far 150 pounds.I suspect the gauge is faulty on the unit and wonder if to buy a complete unit as they seem to be not much more expensive.to test the gauge I wonder if leaving the filter out and running the box would send the gauge back into the green?as a test of the filter being blocked.any thoughts or ideas
  3. The system will not run if there’s no water in it I believe? Is the water in the bilge also from this system and it’s not bleed well.its a simple wiring circuit if you have wiring diagram to sort electrics
  4. Thanks for all the advice looks like we will be redirecting to my mums For now.
  5. We are moving onto our boat shortly and need to somehow get our mail redirected and be able to collect it as we will not have an address.royal mail collect does not seem to help or work as we do not have an address as a last resort we could have it sent to a relative what do others do?
  6. Works great used it to seal a small leak on a hatch
  7. Hi Tony thanks for the reply love reading your posts and learnt so much on here.But surely if the supply tank is supplying a good supply of cold water through the webasto the system will take longer to get to temperature? Than reculculaing part warm water from a small radiator my heater tank receives all the water on the return flow into the top of the tank and takes water to supply the webasto from the bottom which has cooled off.
  8. Have installed a webasto on my boat which only heats the calorifier fitted a large 30 litre header tank to stop it cycling run the webasto for three quarters on an hour and have had no problems so far the cool water of the large header tank seems to work

  10. My boats quite near the size limit also has sides which are quite straight up rather than angled in got to the last couple of hundred yards and caught the front corner my mistake took a good chunk of rock with me.I was told to not fight the tunnels self steer and just keep a steady speed with gentle steering got carried away when the end of the tunnel was insight.the chap who goes through with you brings a good light on board which goes on the roof and lights the tunnel well.I also had a couple of the 210ltr plastic drums on the front deck which I filled with water to bring the front down.
  11. My thought on using them is there ease of fitting with no worry of connecting to the plastic already fitted.my worry was the thickness of the pipe as you have stated above Chewbacka for bends and vibration from the pump.
  12. Would it be ok to use these fitting at screw fix as flexible pipes at the fresh water pump have the correct fittings at the pump seems a simple solution unless someone can advise why not. ( JG SPEEDFIT PUSH-FIT FLEXIBLE TAP CONNECTOR HOSES 15MM X ½" X 300MM 2 PACK (9938G)
  13. Thanks for replies plenty of options I could not find any great help again from all much appreciated
  14. I have plain 22mm copper tube at the moment which I want to connect three quarter/19mm rubber coolant hose to the webasto what could I use to connect the eBay connection to the copper pipe wth a compression joint please?
  15. Hi Been looking for a connector which I can use to reduce 22mm copper pipe to three quarter coolant rubber pipe it’s to connect a webasto to the hot water tank what have others used not having much luck on the internet
