  1. I actually measured it at 41 psi which I thought close to the factory setting.
  2. Yes. Pump off, tank valve closed, taps open.
  3. Sorry Tony. I meant expansion tank, name escaped me for a while. Its states 3 bar on the label and tyre pressure gauge confirms that so OK.
  4. What pressure should this be set at? Pump cuts in at 20 psi and out at 40 psi. Is adjusting it the same as accumulator?
  5. BCNS Facebook page shows a lot of boats moored at Smethwick waiting for the off.
  6. And they don't like you occupying a table if you're not eating.
  7. Anyone used one of these and can recommend a particular model. Spent all day with a water fed brush and scrubbing brush to clean the roof of a widebeam. Thought a pressure washer might make life easier but has to be easy to store.
  8. Phone him and ask. He's only 1/2 mile away.
  9. Can't Simon at Selby Boat Centre help?
  10. Much of it by feel at present. Swivelled the alternator down so I could get at the solenoid to confirm diagnosis. With alternator off looks like you can get a socket on the two retaining bolts but they appear to go through the bell housing and out so about 4 inches long. The heat exchanger overhangs the starter so much of it will be by feel or use of a mirror. Unfortunately one of the steel supports for the deck boards is in just the right place to stop you getting your head right down.
  11. The starter on our neighbours Sea Otter has failed. Anyone on CWDF ever changed one and give some pointers?
  12. Perhaps because it's a long way up if you're on a narrowboat?
  13. And I'll make sure we're securely moored. Wouldn't want to meet it at the bridge at Twenty Pence.
  14. On my Android phone it's the camera symbol after you click the comments box.
