    Struggling Morso with back boiler

    Hi I've attached for a start a diagram of the system with has a 12v pump in it. Got it nice and hot tonight, all pipework is hot but towel rail is not. Any advice welcome. As I said reducing flow by adjusting lock shield valves on back radiator has helped but still can't get towel rail heated.

    Struggling Morso with back boiler

    Hi all Thanks for all the advice last November, I managed to get through a cold winter by supplementing with electric heating. I'm back with more questions about my back boiler set up. During the summer I cleared out the crap from what had dropped on heat exchanger, there was quite a lot. I drained the whole system down and replaced with new coolant. I took the first radiator out in the system and flushed it. I also fiddled with the values on the last radiator to reduce the flow through the radiator. This has improved the heat generated in the first radiator but the towel only gets warm, not hot, like the first and last radiators. Should I reduce the flow even more in the last radiator? How much can the reduce the flow without causing the any problems? Thanks again for advice, it is greatly appreciated.

    Lister stw3 overheating?

    Great news, she didn't sound stressed to me. Guess like the temp gauge the rev counter is faulty too. Previous owner really didn't keep things maintained. Glad all engine worries seem resolved now, it's been a rocky period with overheating problems, diesel bug, then air lock in fuel system, then temp gauge, impeller now all seems resolved. Hoping I can concentrate on other things that need doing now. It's been harsh introduction to owning a narrow boat but I've learnt loads to hopefully be more proactive and prevent problems occuring in the future. I appreciate people taking the time to give me help and advice, great forum!

    My rev counter must be faulty too as goes well over 3000. It does jump up and down and doesn't work often

    Lister stw3 overheating?

    Hi all Had new sensor and temp gauge fitted and the engine ran for about an hour at about 2500 revs, got up 90 degrees. Left Aldridge marina today after work (hooray and good riddance, not more to say) and traveled 4.5 miles, didn't go over 2500 revs but she did get close to 100 degrees but did not boil like before with coolant squirting out expansion, knocked her down at 100 and she cooled and seems steady at around 90. Does this sound normal. at an average of 2000 revs it makes very slow going indeed as took me almost 4 hours to do 4.5 miles and two locks solo?

    Getting temp sensor and gauge looked at this pm. No sign of any other problems, start easy, does not lose oil, oil filler cap has no mayonnaise looking residue. Hopefully the mechanic attending can advise me on what the problem is and I can put all the faults I inherited behind me!

    There are no visible leaks in engine bay. I don't really know how to check coolant level besides removing filer tap on top of expansion tank and peering down there? It's easy to start. The temp gauge does not work. I haven't removed oil filter yet.
