  1. Many thanks all, I shall give Comma a try. As regards the grade I’ve just carried on using what the previous 2 owners used. In 6 years I’ve never had a starting problem although I do always give it the recommended 20+ turns with the starting handle after its been left, before firing it up.
  2. I usually use Morris Golden Film SAE 30 in my Lister FR2, but notice that Comma Classic is available at a better price. Has anyone used this oil and can recommend it?
  3. Dear oh dear, I couldn’t have got it more wrong if I’d tried.
  4. Many thanks. It was Aquarius and Ilford, not a banjo but a flute, God I must be loosing it! Thanks everyone!
  5. Now, long lining could very well be the one, have you got a link? I still can’t find it.
  6. I think it was banjo, or maybe banjo and fiddle. It sounded a bit like Irish session music to me. Not sure about Rebecca Jane Photography, I’ll see if I can find her.
  7. Hi, can anyone help? A couple of months ago I found a rather good video of a boat going up the Atherstone flight, very professionally done, with lots of windlass work, and rushing water and background music of, I think, banjo music, rather than the usual wind and flapping anoraks. The film maker had made a couple of canal based films and some on other topics, and I think she might have had her own YouTube channel. I promised to sent it to a friend and now, of course, I can’t find it. It’s a bit of a longshot but if it rings a bell with anyone I’d love find it again. cheers
  8. I’ve got a Whale fresh water pump model FW1214B installed last year. After having some work done at a marina the attached strainer now spits a squirt of water each time the tap is turned off. taking the top off and replacing stops it for a bit but it soon starts again. There is no O ring and my first thought is that there should be, and that the mechanic managed to lose it. Has anyone experienced this problem? Should there be an o ring? The manual is useless on this point. regards Tim
  9. Marvellous! That’s just the application I had in mind. many thanks
  10. Does anyone have experience of the cheap £20-30 manual bilge pumps offered on eBay and by some chandlers? I need to buy a manual pump and these are about half the price of a 2nd hand Whale, but do they do the job?
  11. In the unlikely event that anyone is still attached to this thread: I saw Lothbury Lady appearing out of the Harecastle Tunnel a couple of weeks ago. She is now part of the Heritage hire fleet based at Sherborne wharf on the Macclesfield.
  12. Ah, thanks. The sight gauge shows a couple of inches of presumably water, (no sign of antifreeze). The only way I can see to top it up would be via the air vent, does that sound remotely likely?
  13. Can anyone help identify this for me please? The large bore pipe at the top goes to an air vent, and it’s connected at the bottom to the pipework coming from the calorifier. But what does the small bore pipe on the front do?
  14. Many thanks everyone. Sounds like it could be my over vigorous shaking that’s to blame. (Thanks Roger) I’ll have a go at fixing them, but if it doesn’t work it’s not the end of the world.
  15. Hi, it’s a C200. I’ve not noticed anything in the cassettes, but I’ll have a proper next time I empty one. Cheers.
