  1. i will not be held accountable for any jilted brides, so its a Newage PRM 160D2 it runs on 15w 40 engine oil not synthetic so i opted for Halfords mineral 15w 40 i got 2 litres hopefully should be enough as oil is visible on bottom of the dip stick.
  2. Thank you, I found the plate on top and got the info from the manufacturers web page. Very much appreciated as I did not know where to start :-)
  3. I have a Kubota 3 cylinder engine, the gear box is out of oil I am guessing it would be transmission oil I need, I am hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction regards the specification I would require thank you in advance
  4. I have been google researching skin tanks and now have a much better idea how it works. I am sure I will be able resolve issues. Thank you to both Tony and David for your help and supplying the correct name that enabled the research. Flyboy I can assure you the boat has got its full boat safety history, for the 10 years it has been in my family. The wiring has never been highlighted as a concern with any of the various bss inspectors as of yet, however I take on board your thoughts and will look to address the issue you have highlighted, would not want any damage to the boat or owners due
  5. Thank you Tony that helps a lot, it has given me a starting point. very much appreciated.
  6. Hi i am hoping some one will be able to establish what cooling system my engine uses from the photos, i thought it used river water but now i am not so sure, i un done the filler cap on the heat exchanger ( i assume its a heat exchanger the first photo) however, water started to pour out so i re tightened it quickly an advice would be welcome.
  7. Thank you for advice I will try and sort the units on a cold frosty day instead. Cheers
  8. I dont have a guage, I discovered a while back that water tanks wait till you are half way through a shower before emptying. So the solution was simple no more showers.

  10. I have aluminium rectangle windows fortunately no curves my solution was to remove the top opening window catches and brackets, these were easily removed simply prising them off the rivets with a flat screw driver. i then sealed the top window shut and fitted some made to measure sealed units (no frame just glass) in the recess, sealing them with silicon and small non obtrusive brackets finally replacing the wooden framing, looks superb better than before in my opinion. The sealed units are k glass and argon filled, boat stays so much warmer, no condensation inside however i do get conden
  11. already have a battery charger set up, plus the engine just thought i could dispense of the charger if the inverter could do a better job.
  12. okay thank you i think it is just an inverter, good news means one less job for me to sort
  13. Hi all, I have a multicell pure sine inverter L series, hopefully that will mean something to someone, I believe it should charge the batteries whilst plugged in to a mains supply if so i have completely screwed up my connections. My question is has any one got an instruction / install manual?

  15. would powder help with a macerator? When leaving the boat for any period of time I pour and leave coke cola in it, to clear limescale build ups, just based on the fact coke cola will clean no end of items so i assume it would help with a macerator, I also pour cooking oil down it to coat the internal workings. any thoughts, tips and advice on this would be appreciated.
