  1. Why a Narrow Boat or GRP

    but the question was asked on a canal forum
  2. River canal Rescue, worth joining?

    I carry spares on my boat for routine maintenance ie filters alternator belts spare alternator would I call them to replace an alternator belt no I would not, this is a part that has failed and like your starter motor is covered in their t & c, like your starter motor would you be happy if your starter motor failed and they told you its not covered due to age wear and tear,they also told me that if its the rubber seals in the injection pump its not covered yet as in their T & c it states rubber seals that require routine wear and tear replacement are not covered yet this rubber seal is not something that you would replace on a regular interval or servicing.

    diesel is getting into sump and leaking from top of pump don`t want to risk over run.

    I`m more concerned about an item that is covered in their parts replacement not being covered due to age and the say gaskets or rubber seals are not covered yet I can`t see anything in the T & C about this , to me if the say they will not pay due to age wear and tear then not unless the engine or parts are new then they won`t.

    ok what do you all think to this estimate. the fuel leak is from one of the injection pumps engine is a Isuzu 38. Dear Mr James Maccuaig, Please find below details of the work required. Job Number: 104392 Member Code: Craft Name: Supplier: 210642 Still Game RCR Details: fuel leak from the injectors from the bolts. Pictures below. Notes: Following on form your conversation with the engineer in the office, we have prepared and estimate to undertake the work to remove your injection pump and send to specialist for investigation. If the issue is due 'a unforeseen mechanical failure' then these costs will be covered by your RCR membership with just a £50 excess, and even if we find a broken spring or washer this will activate the claim. However as the pump is leaking and their is diesel in your oil there is a chance this is just a seal issue related to age and deterioration. Attend and disconnected pipes and remove injectors and injection pump/s Take for refurb and return and refit fitting new gaskets Bleed system and test This is an estimate so costs can go up or down depending on parts or labour used to complete your job. Any labour time outside of the estimate will be charged at £22.50 per half hour. All parts are charged at RRP. You will only ever pay for parts or labour that are used. Please note that this is a rough estimate based on a typical installation requirements.
