  1. I don't think I can access the drain holes for the gearbox or reduction - I assume they are underneath? Would it be bad to pump it out from the dipstick tubes? Also am I likely to have an engine oil filter that needs replacing?
  2. Hello, Does anyone know if a Webasto Thermo Top Evo 4/5 is a good option for a narrowboat? The fact it can modulate the power down to 2.5kW sounds like it should be? Or would I be better off getting the Thermo Top C which seems to be more common? Thanks

  4. They look very nice - easy to get carried away with all the upgrades available!
  5. In the bathroom walls? I guess they would have to be large slow moving ones in the hope of being quiet - but again starting to over complicate things. This is good to know. So I should look for the smallest stove possible. Or consider a small diesel cabin heater instead?
  6. Hi Jen, Thanks for the suggestions! Kitchen is a neat idea but there are already radiators on the port side shown in the first diagram (connected to an alde comfort 2928 gas boiler) which I would like to keep as an alternative heat source and I think I really would like the stove in the living / bedroom area. It may be possible to have some additional radiators on the starboard side but I think I'd quite like to keep the stove simple this time. Next boat will definitely have a gravity fed system. Maybe I could install a large fan moving warm air into the bathroom and another moving on forward into the kitchen area...?
  7. Hello. I would like to install a wood burning stove in my reverse layout 40ft cruiser stern narrowboat. My current plan is to remove the large fold out sofa bed and install a cross bed and stove as shown below: Is this a good plan? Ideally I would have something that would stay in all night and have a glass viewing window: Pipsqueak Faversham The Hobbit Morso 1410 - too big? Would any of these be suitable? Do I have any chance of the heat making its way down the small corridor to the kitchen area? Thanks for any advice!
  8. My manual says every 1000 hours for the gearbox and every 250 for the engine. If I found myself needing to top up could I use these in a pinch? Engine - Halfords 15W40 Part Synthetic Oil 5L Gearbox / Reduction - Halfords Gear Oil EP 80W/90 GL-4 1L
  9. Hello, I've seen various recommendations for different oils to use with a Lister SR3 & LH 150 - and just want to double check I have understood correctly that this is the best combo: Engine - Morris Golden Film SAE 30 Classic Motor Oil Gearbox / Reduction - Morris Golden Film 80W-90 Classic Gear Oil Or should I be using something else?? Cheers, D
