  1. My old engine engineer/machinist never fitted the skirt rings to pistons. Reckoned they did nothing but cause seizing due to excessive oil scraping. Long passed now. On the engines I built that had skirt rings I left them off and never had any oil consumption or seizing problems.

  3. Certainly always have 2 spares and a source of more to hand. There are no non standard filters unless you make your own using aquarium socks.

  6. With a normally working diesel engine all you need for it to run is a good charged battery and fuel. I suspect you have not got the later and shortly will not have the former if you continue to try without simply fixing what is wrong.
  7. Don't the staff do it? I had this dilemma with a twin tank setup with no balance pipe, I used to run till the tank with the dipstick in was 1/4 full then just fill up.

  9. Brinklow is not the only ghost marina, I tried contacting Lime Farm and they will not accept emails for some daft technical fault.
  10. Their terms and conditions do state that payments to the boat owner will be made on leaving the marina. But "special conditions " on the application form state no refunds. That's fine unless no one owns up to being responsible.
  11. Solder it up but check your PRV is not over 2.5bar before it vents. Best is to put a brass screw in the hole and solder it all together. Modern stainless steel calorifiers are probably more reliable.
  12. Low sulphur fuel is possibly the cause, its known to rot early rubber seals. For long term reliability I would advise a trip to a diesel specialist and get the pump overhauled, there will be more than 1 seal needing replacement. Its an easy pump to remove and refit being master splined.
