    How many coils dose my calorifier have?

    Ok good points about a pressurised system in a small space, luckily I do have a stainless Steel header tank that I’ve acquired so all good there. Iam at work atm but ill draw up a diagram of the boat for u to look at later with my initial lay out ideas. Thanks again Sam

    What would u use instead Sam? I have thought about pump failure I was wondering if I could add in a pressure/temp gauge to the pipe work on the flow some where near the back to monitor temperature, was also thinking of some train like steam release horn for emergency’s. I was gunna run the pressure release to the engine bildge, the same place as where the calorifier blow out is?

    Yeh I’ll defiantly need a pump as my burner is at the front and the tank at the back I’ll never get the rize.....also it’s horizontal lol. I’ve been looking at jabsco 12v circulation pumps, the plastic body ones but there not cheep £180! I was Gunnaput two small rads in two as a heat sink. So A new calorifier will wreck my budget lol

    No the only how water source is from the engine as a Plummer connected it when I bought the the boat. Could he of connected the engine too both coils? If there is two that is? Sorry I only just saw your full message, yeh the prv is td off at the top. So yeh mabey both coils are in use on the engine.

    It appears all the valves are connected up? I’ll take some photos to clarify

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, I’ve just had another look and do have two valves at the other end. So 5 at one end (with one having what looks like a draining valve) and two at the other end.
  9. Hi everyone, now bare with me here as my know page of plumbing is basic at best, I currently have a horazontal calorifier which is providing my hot water from the raw water cooled engine, but I’d like to add a second heat source from the back boiler on my wood burner. Problem is am not sure whether I have a single or twin coil. Is there a way of telling by the amount of valve fittings on the tank (I have 5) or do I have to drain the system and remove the immersion and look inside? Any advice would be great. Cheers. Darren

    Where to buy portholes

    Apologies for the late response I’ve been off grid, I’ve decided to go with pro cast thanks for all the contributions, and a special thank you to Murflynn for monitoring the thread for me and the sarcastic emojis.

    Where to buy portholes

    Aya Mick I’ve maxed it to Braunston back working on the boat for the summer. Am moored out side the admiral nelson. Am still trying to figure out my porthole issues. Don’t know if your heading down this way on the next few months? Darren

    Thanks for all the responses guys I’ve got her running again now went for a test drive for an hour to let everything bed in, looks like everything is running fine if not better than ever. Thanks again for all the advice, panic over

    What size BMC oil filter?

    Thank your for checking that’s put my mind at ease, I’ll defiantly buy a pump but I am no where near any where atm I presume it will bugger this new filter? But will it cause any other engine damage if so I’ll have to abandon boat and try source a pump

    What size BMC oil filter?

    Thanks Tony my second problem is I can’t undo the sump plug to drain the old oil out and I have no hand pump fitted, I was hopping to fit a new filter and top up new oil just to get me to a marina where I can inverstergate further as I am in the middle of know where. Good or bad idea? Should I call someone out?
