  1. Yet on Bm1Funny readings thread. Who wrote? One connection and one connection only to the battery - the shunt. All other wires, yes all of them, yes even that one, and the starter negative... yes all of them, go to the other side of the shunt. I'm confused? Or ...........

  6. Is the pump inlet from tank smaller bore or restricted in any way?
  7. Right then. Tank height is probably 18-24". This would give a head of less than1psi with water. Diesel is at circa 0.7-0.8 Sg. So pressure head even less. If gas is used instead of liquid then leak is more likely to show up. So drain tank. Clean up and get dry. Turn off engine fuel isolations. Cap seal with tape or even a plastic bag round threads. Via vent apply air pressure. Seal around tube. A small tyre compressor will suffice. Even human lungs[non smokers] can deliver near 2psi. [dizziness permitting] Remember that the volume of air needs to be compressed so this will take a fair time. 2-3psi will show leak. Either bubbles if below water line or soapy water on hull if above. [snoop] This is a slow, controlled way to leak test. Once leak found carry on with rest of tank as there may be more than 1 hole. Once you know where leak is then you can make an informed decision on repair. I have repaired many motorcycle tanks by Argon filling as an inert and the welded up quite happily.[tig]
  8. 1. If oil in EU is old or low the symptoms you are describing can occur. Watch genny & see if red oil [level] light flickers. 2. You are 12V & not 24V?
  9. Subtle Mr. B. Made me smile anyway.
