  1. A Wee one to start again.

    As above - in water this year, should last for years knowing your standards. Re laminate externally, on the water 20??, should last for years knowing your standards.
  2. traction battery and boat stability

    I like it, good sense of humour, have a greenie
  3. Honda eu20i starting problems

    Back in the 70's we used to look after a number of taxi's running on gas and they suffered from valve guide wear and seat recession
  4. Leaky stem gland

    agreed 200l/hr is nothing really, easy answer https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/182052165900?chn=ps&adgroupid=47842945425&rlsatarget=pla-380312377891&abcId=1129946&adtype=pla&merchantid=115195382&poi=&googleloc=1006816&device=c&campaignid=974959912&crdt=0

  7. Charging of domestic batteries

  8. Charging of domestic batteries

    Here we go again
  9. Winter project?

    Plenty of ZX81's on Ebay
  10. Winter project?

    Ahh the good old ZX81, 1kb memory with the option of adding a 16kb memory pack that had a connection so bad that the slightest movement made it crash and lose all the programming you had just done. If you managed to get to the point of saving then out came the tape recorder. Happy days
  11. May I suggest as this is V1 that once its finalised with a V2 and everyone is happy with it (if such a thing will ever exist) that mods are asked to pin it AND lock it so it becomes a simple guide to the info we would like rather than the start of a 100 page thread of questions and answers. V1 could then be deleted.
  12. New batteries - problem

    Later on in the thread you confirmed the 60ah was the total usage between 8pm and morning, Unless I'm missing something you are saying that 60ah is dropping them from 100% SOC to 40% SOC which would roughly be typical for a decent single100ah battery. You have 4 x 110, if your figures are correct I doubt anything could revive batteries that are down to 25% capacity due to sulfation. Either the batteries are totally shot or your 100% and or 40% SOC figures are way out.
  13. Touching Up Bodywork

    400 isn't really very fine, more medium, fine/very fine is more in the range 800/1200 grit or go very very at 2000. There are some low quality papers on sale. A couple of years ago I got some from Halfords and within seconds all the grit had dropped off, 360 suddenly became rough paper
  14. ammeter

    The meter above needs a shunt. On the listing it gives a link to purchase. https://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-Current-Shunts-FOR-20A-50A-100A-200A-500A-Digital-LED-Voltmeter-Ammeter-/271729386459?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item3f445563db follow that link and it gives another ebay listing (different seller) that says "Shipping: Does not ship to United Kingdom" Suggest this link as its from the meter seller so should be OK http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC-Current-Shunt-FOR-20A-50A-100A-200A-500A-Digital-LED-Voltmeter-Ammeter-Panel/171906336574?hash=item28066a873e:m:mcV1cAcz-mC1SjelrssYCWg
