  1. After six years have finally got round to some new porthole liners, having fitted thicker insulation the old would not fit. We could not find wood or fibreglass to fit well plus the cost was high. New ones are just loose in position not yet secured.
  2. I am getting a very slight mist from breather this is only since I have removed the trolling valve set up off detailed in another post. My guess is that the gearbox control lever valve is different on a none trolling valve set up. Everything is working ok so I want to look if the elbow is fitted and then possibly exstend the breather upright so the oil runs back in. When I removed the trolling valve there was a oilreturn pipe from the trolling valve to the of the gearbox I left this pipe on and not blanked off but higher than the gearbox everything was ok till I blanked this redundant return pipe off. I might just put it back as a second breather
  3. Thank you that was my intention so the slight mist of oil runs back down the pipe.
  4. Hi please could someone advise me. Does the breather on a PRM 500 gearbox unscrew from the gearbox and 23a come out with it attached or does the elbow have to be removed first by removing the top plate. I have slight oil coming out the breather oil level is correct. Many Thanks.
  5. Don’t think you have upset anyone.but think people are worried you may be stripping without knowing the cause of the the fault. We do not know your mechanical knowledge or experience and think I think you need some help with correct diagnosis. It will be worst when the heads off and you possibly not see anything wrong. Other ways water could get in by any water to oil coolers.is the coolant level dropping it should be if it is going in the oil? Is it worth removing injectors spinning engine over see if there’s water in the bores. I still think you need someone to have a look at it.

  8. Agree with Sam owner needs help not to start stripping this down,if there is some fuel coming out the pipes on turning over the engine it’s unlikely to be the valve gear.I would remove the air cleaned and put hands over intake while turning over on starter and see if there is any suction,then bleed and check fuel flow from tank to pump. I as well think owner needs assistance
  9. Water in the oil soon goes creamy coloured oil. Could it be a small amount of unburnt diesel which has ended up in the sump due to none start via rings? Think you need some assistance with locating fault if you feel it is outside your comfort zone and knowledge it could be something quite simple. If it was running ok before it was turned off cannot see it being anything that bad.
  10. Follow the stop cable to where it is secured on the engine or diesel pump bet the cable or linkage is jammed in the open position disconnect the cable and work manually

  12. Why not buy the same pump no messing about with pipes.the blue bit near the pipe on the pump is a quick release I think to detach pipes from pump without disturbing pipes. my pump does not need an accumulator in the system so I replaced pump with same pump.Also I replaced pipes near pump with the braided hoses to cut down vibration and noise?
  13. Watching it as my mum loved the royal family think the queen and Charles in fact enjoyed the recent programs on Charles are ok don’t like the tax payer paying for all the hangers on even if they bring in a lot of money via tourists
  14. They will shut down if there is air in the system they cut out if there is no water going through the system,so bleed it we’ll header tank needs to be above the level of unit. Thereis a very similar recent thread on this site with lots of advice about what to check if you do a search
  15. Pumps fastened to unit connected by short rubber pipe,I have wondered are coolant pipes the right way round at unit is it drawing the coolant from the radiator circuit and not direct from the header tank ?
