  1. Interesting project. Looks more like a Harborough Marine to me. What engine will be going in ? .
  2. If it was still on that mooring in November 21 maybe it got moved with the others. https://www.canalworld.net/forums/index.php?/topic/113280-mersey-and-wye-ll-shortboats/
  3. Have a look at Sabb or Bukh.
  4. Thanks Tony Your wiring instructions were spot on. Got it going. Thanks again.
  5. Thanks, you've given me something to work with. will have another look at it tomorrow.
  6. Hi all, I have an old starter motor and I'm struggling with the wiring. It's a cav CA45f12-35m , where do I connect wires to get it going ?. I have read some of sirnibbles previous posts but I can't find any wiring pics. Thanks I've circled the terminals.

  9. Wigan, Leeds Liverpool https://www.pugh-auctions.com/property/25655 The land opposite also for sale
  10. There is the floating dry dock at Altham.
  11. I bought a sabb 2j from Marine Enterprises, Dorset a couple of years ago. Sean there had 2 complete engines and 4 more stripped for parts. As part of the sale of the engine to me, he replaced the water pump diaphragm. So I think he would be worth a try. http://www.marineenterprisesltd.co.uk/
  12. Have you looked into solar panels? Other than that it would be a decent suitcase genny.
  13. I have a little parweld inverter welder. It's smaller than a toaster but will still run 3.2 rods easily. Rods are available on eBay, 20kg for around £45. That's a lot of welding. Remember with stick you pull towards you, not push away ;).
  14. I just had a check back in, looks like they have got the engine going.
  15. Needs some handrails on the cabin, and that back bit of cabin wants taking off and some gunnels adding. Wonder if that engine can be saved? Looks like a petter.
  16. Not when you hand a stranger the keys and expect to be paid in instalments, over the next so many months. (Not saying this has happened in this case) As is always said on here, boat theft is never as simple as it first appears.
  17. Possession is nine-tenths of the law.. I would not let my boat go until I had the money in the bank..
  18. I watch eBay listings for narrowboats. Before the covid, there were over 100 narrow boat listings and these would change regularly. Now there are 17 and most of these have been on for months.
  19. That's how I read it. Refurbished Beta JP2 Diesel Marine Engine inc Borg Warner gearbox (Price inc VAT) . It's in the first line of the description.
  20. Jp4 currently at 20quid, 4 days left. Ebay link
