  1. Finally got ours finished and ready to go. Not a bad job but I'm pretty chuffed.
  2. Thanks for all the ideas. Sometimes it helps to have a few ideas thrown around. MK1 made so will make a better version out of something tomorrow. Cheers all
  3. Yeah this is my thinking if nothing else comes to light.
  4. Todays job, trying to sort out the shower. Turns out the mixer just needed a good clean up, however it is missing the knob. I am struggling to find either a suitable knob or something to use as a knob. The main problem I'm having it that its a 7/8" drive which the knob would need to slot on to. All the ones i seem to be able to find online are small spline drives. Any suggestions? Its usable as it is - just, but with wet hands its quite a small knob to grab hold of at the moment There are no part numbers on the mixer unfortunately.
  5. Best addition so far. Excuse the dodgy paint job, this has since been rectified.
  6. Cheers all, I am going to climb down and inspect with torch and mirror, no problem doing that. I have a new relay on its way and a bulk load of 15 and 25 amp fuses so can do a little experimenting (one thing at a time though). You would think being an avionic engineer this would be a doddle but I think we are blessed with much easier to follow diagrams (with internal workings of components). I hate working with coloured wires all leading to boxes, however Flyboys diagrams are much better to follow so i may steal those
  7. Yes that would make sense. It has to be something causing the fuse to blow while the engine is operating. Ive got a feeling the solenoid and starter are one assembly....£££
  8. I'm reckoning that the diagram with the 25A fuse is older and has been replaced with the 15A suitable for the wiring...
  9. Completely agree with the fuse doing its job, the only reason I mentioned uprating it was because of this diagram...
  10. Always turns over and starts, never sluggish or slow. If it was clicking i would go for the battery being low or connection on the starter or solenoid
  11. They suggested waiting for 7 days while we get back to you So in the mean time I thought i would see if anyone here had any ideas
  12. This is our diagram. There is a similar diagram for the 14-40 which has a 25A fuse where our 15A one is. I can change the fuse and engine starts fine, then after stopping the engine it wont re-start and the fuse is blown? So possibly the relay is sticking, maybe as simple as that?
  13. I am after some magnetic ones if anyone knows of any commercially available ones, otherwise i guess its off to the shed
  14. Has anyone had a problem with their starter relay fuse blowing? We have a Barrus Shire 40 and last year the 15A fuse for the starter relay would randomly blow, preventing the starter from turning. Its been fine for most of this year until yesterday when it happened once more and again today. According to the wiring diagram its called the Engine Start Control System fuse. It may well be similar on other engines. I've got a pot of spare fuses but it would be nice to know if this has happened to anyone before and what they did about it.
  15. No I cant imagine it will be. I don't ever recall seeing a boat down there in all the years i've lived in that area. I tell a lie, a couple of canoes once day while i was cycling past. its a lovely area though, nice and peaceful and the bridge at the entrance to that bit of the cut is pretty old (but you wouldn't know from driving over)
