  1. Yes that sounds very plausible. Are the diodes within the alternator? I may just whip it off and take it to be tested
  2. It’s the 5cyl kubota K14134 BF2803 ive now found that our electrician had somehow managed to connect B1 (+) of the Dom alternator to a batt neg. this has now been rectified but we’re now getting a cracking/buzzing rather than a continuous beep?
  3. Still can’t get to the bottom of this. the engine is the 5cyl kubota. If anyone has some further thoughts or can point me in the direction of the oil pressure sender I’d be much appreciated.
  4. I’ve just started our engine after a rewire of the engine room and some work done to cooling system and found that whilst the engine starts and runs fine the beeping present on the first ignition position doesn’t turn off after the engine has started. Oil pressure looks ok, temp ok, batt charging. Any thoughts? IMG_0419.MOV
  5. That’s brilliant thank you mike, just the answer we were looking for. I’ll be looking for a new open boiler now. Question is, which one do we go for?
  6. Yep, he’s got the ticket. He only does marine gas work
  7. So they’re compliant with BSS for livaboards?
  8. Boat is live aboard, boiler installed in kitchen. Gas safe Engineer will fit it
  9. Our boat was built in 2005 and the PO said she was not allowed to fit a normal piezo style boiler due to the change in regs at the time. I don’t like the boiler we got (Morco FE11), it’s never worked right (I think due to the incorrect flue) it needs 240v power to fire and it’s generally a temperamental pain in the ass. As I understand it now BSS have relaxed the regs in this department. Does this mean I am now ‘allowed’ to rip the thing out and replace it with piezo open boiler? Thanks in advance ?
  10. Good thought, will plug in the computer charger or something and give it another tey
  11. It’s a pure sine wave Stirling electronics inverter. All readings taken are without load so are the actual recorded output of inverter/geny. I’ll change multimeter battery and borrow a mates for comparison. It does seem to be very odd.
  12. Hi, I’m having some problems with my room sealed boiler not firing and thus has led me to look at my electrical system. Thd boiler (morco compact electronic 11ltr) requires 240v to fire. I can only get a max of 14.1v on my multimeter when set to 200~ (ac). When I run it off the geny I get 110v on the multimeter. Surely both should be 230/240v or am I testing something wrong? The boiler is at the end of a ring main and all sockets are testing the same so do not believe it to be voltage drop or fault in wiring.
  13. Canal fed jacuzzi on a narrowboat?! That's either an engineering marvel or madness. I think maybe both! ;-)
  14. Thanks again Sam, yes I intend to fit a shallow trap as well. It was just getting from 1.5"/ 40mm to 3/4"/ 20mm that was causing me to scratch my head. Thank you both for your thoughts on baths. I'm not intending to install this bath on either of your boats so you needn't worry. Black Rose you comment about women is sexist and irrelevant
  15. Sam, you're a star! That's perfect. This has been driving me mad, glad it's such a simple/ cheap fix https://www.screwfix.com/p/floplast-hose-connector/48625?tc=BT1&ds_kid=92700020953274405&ds_rl=1249799&ds_rl=1245250&ds_rl=1249481&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3ar34Jio2gIVTbXtCh2L_gFCEAQYAiABEgIugvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CMT7tvOYqNoCFcFnGwod5zYCzg
