  2. In fact at 4:30 this morning I was desperately trying to stop one of Daphne’s top sheets blowing off towards Ashton under Lyne

    This is the sort of question everyone will have a view on my best advice is contact Crowther Marine with your hull dimensions and engine / gearbox details and take their advice
  7. Thanks all I have obviously lots more surprises to come wth this engine
  8. no not sure about fuel filter, there are two in line between day tank and the engine
  9. Again thank you the depression next to the LH pump which did not appear to be leaking was full of engine oil whereas the one next to the RH pump which appears to have the leak, was full of mainly diesel, I will work my way round all the unions tightening up and replace washers as necessary Thanks everyone replacement washers and one replacement bleed screw seems to have improved matters a lot, starting to understand the engine a bit more now

  11. That makes sense will make sure nothing moves thank you all again that’s been a fantastic response
  12. Thanks will take it out very carefully and have a look
  13. Thanks for all the replies it’s that plug/ screw that appears to be leaking, so should it have a copper washer under it?
  14. I am just finding my way round the FR2 The boat I have recently bought. The engine runs perfectly well, the fuel is gravity fed from a day tank. When I uncovered the CAV injection pumps I noticed that there appeared to be fuel leaking from one of them. It is not coming from the bleed screw which is tight but could be coming from the large slotted screw directly underneath it? I have turned the fuel supply off which has stopped the flow. Anybody got any ideas please
  15. Hi I have not had any major problems on the Peak or the Macc with Daphne which draws just over 30”, I note that CRT intend to dredge the Peak this year. Obviously you will have to check the depth at particular moorings, good luck, Bob
