  1. How much do you want for the old Eberspacher? As an ex 'tiff' myself I have just sorted my own out. Only did it last week. Where in London are you , should you be willling to part with it.....and finally, if you are, have you got the controller/timer and the loom? If you are close enough I can pop down and remove them.
  2. Were you a 'Tiff'? (Hoiks up a grolly and spits it out)
  3. Ok folks. Thanks for your help. They do say I have Markzheimers. I assumed that the 3 screws in the bucket were from somewhere else. It is typical of me to take sensible precautions....and then forget what precautions I'd taken. Those precautions were to put all screws, bolts, seals and anything else in a certain place. The water pumpleaked into the chamber above the metal housing between the burner and water interface. It came out of the hole as seen. I've now fitted it and tested it. It works great. Hot water for the 1st time since buying the boat. I'm t gave me a lot of confidence knowing that with your help it can be done. I'll need to get the GSM gate opener too.
  4. All I have to do now is tear up the floor, fit a towel rail in the bathroom so it doesn't cycle on and off too frequently, change a leaking 22mm pipe/joint. I'll then fit a new fuel pipe to the fuel tank, drain it all down and put inhibitor/antifreeze in it.....all a 5 minute job.

  6. Well it is water from a bucket as I set it up on a jig in the shed. Having said that , I took it apart and found the problem. I wondered why those 3 screws werel eft over...not really I have markzheimers. They were the screws for the water pump. Oops.
  7. Ok folks. Posted on here last night about a similar topic i.e. the eberspacher but that was electrics and that bit is sorted(until I get it to the boat at least). I've serviced it and the only seal that i didn't change was the big one between the burner chamber and water jacket. (My description). I thought it would be asking for trouble and now I'm thinking I should have taken the trouble. The good news is it's in my shed set up and works. Can anyone tell me what this "tell-tale" hole is for?
  8. Ok. I'll take it apart again. It's not the bracket hole. It wasn't doing it last night.
  9. Thanks for that. Something to think about after I've got it working on the boat. Meanwhile another problem has arisen. Just started it up and there was a load of water coming from a tell tale hole which I presume is there for the very purpose of telling you that there's a seal gone. Which seal has gone. I'll put a picture up.
  10. Thank you. I set it up last night and wired it up with a switch between 12v +ve and yellow wire so I could switch it off. 1st time it was running for a few seconds then turning off. I think it was a voltage drop so put the charger onto the battery. It read 13.4v at the battery and then I switched it on. It was still only reading 10.6 v at the switch but as you know this is enough. It tried to run.....lots of white smoke eventually on the 2nd go it ran. ....fantastic! So there are 2 small issues: 1) Do I buy a new timer or am I just not using it right?; 2) Do I need to worry about the voltage drop?: I think perhaps a new timer might be in order and it sounds like the GSM gate opener is a brilliant idea! It will be like phoning Jeeves to put the heating on before we arrive. The missis would be well impressed with me. She did actually compare me to "Doc" from back to the future when she came down to the shed at 10pm to see the window open, the sound of a jet engine and white smoke coming out of the shed.
  11. We bought our boat around a year ago. Been doing it up and am now trying to get the Eberspacher to work. I've taken it off the boat and mounted it onto a piece of plywood after de-coking it and servicing it. I wanted to give it a test on the bench in the warm shed with the wood burner on instead of the freezing cold engine bay on the water with very restricted room. I've set the timer so it shows the right time, set the heating time for 60 minutes. I've set the preset time. The preset time has been reached but nothing has happened....at all! I've tried pressing key 4 to switch it on. I've tried pressing key 3& kept it pressed then pressed key 4-this should, according to the instructions switch it to continuous operation. At no point does the Heater symbol come on at all. Any ideas? Can I somehow bypass the timer by connecting other wires together?
