  1. More bunkum, cleaning an oil pressure switch to increase oil pressure? Its all rubbish to get away from the plain fact the the engine is a lemon, with pretty paint. 25 psi at running revs? Woefully low, improbably low if its a "new" engine/ Oil pressure on a BMC 1.5D at 2000 rpm should be 50 + psi. 25 psi hot at tickover is normal.
  2. I have one of the wire saws with a ring at each end. Great for cutting branches, tyres off the prop, scrotes.
  3. An idea, set the delay timer for an hour, if the timer runs down the electronics must be taking current, it may start as soon as the delay ends.
  4. Yes, water pump, alternator, starter motor, one injector, a fuel solenoid, and a gasket set for the injection pump and a head set.
  5. The Zanussi KWC 1300 has various places in the program where the current demand falls away to almost zero. This is why on some inverters with power save feature they restart the last function or go to sleep unless the inverter is kept up with a load. Maybe a similar thing?
  6. So why has the common cold not been eradicated? Its a virus. There is a lifetime inoculation for Pneumonia now. Its a virus. Herpes?
  7. I suggested that and he said he had tried it. Keep up at the back !
  8. Spare filters and belts, set of spanners all to suit the model of engine Oil, grease, antifreeze. Water proofs, boiler suit. Calor spanner. Decent rechargeable LED torch. Infra red thermometer. Multimeter, preferably a DC clamp ammeter.
  9. Stop messing with them, sue the person/people to whom you paid money in the County Court. Don't waste you breath talking to Stephanie, its a waste of time. Don't go after this one either, its from the same place and will not be as good as it looks. Stephanie is still at it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMC-1-5-Secondhand-Engine/164164380006?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225076%26meid%3D31e34bb92c584b7da3c20fcd764dbeb0%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dlo%26sd%3D143758474037%26itm%3D164164380006%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DDefaultOrganic%26brand%3DUnbranded&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109
  10. Separate battery for the Ebersnatcher?
  11. Folk in the UK and most of the industrial world have it easy, just stay away from everyone and you will not get infected. Try India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Philippines ( where there is a shoot on sight curfew ) where there is no way of surviving alone.
  12. Little of this tale of woe makes sense other than the facts that RCR supplied the engine, probably from Key Engineering, it has a history of odd failures and even odder repairs, false information condemning a gearbox, overheating, losing oil pressure, and going bang. Sound like a complete waste of time. Two to three years ago rings a bell when the same BMC 1500 engine was touted around several unfortunate buyers, being replaced after it failed to perform several times. I wonder if this is the same bad penny?
  13. The biggest emitter of CO on most boats is the gas cooker. Less than 35 ppm is considered to be acceptable but not as a constant. Solid fuel stoves are quite good provided the seals are good and the door is not opened too often. The increase in CO from a gas flame when combustion is not correct is significant. Any gas appliance should be installed and used in accord with the manufacturers instructions, this will exclude a gas fridge designed to have a flue which is not fitted. Boats are a special case because there is no downward escape route for noxious gasses in an enclosed space. I accept that these fridges have had a long and successful period of use in boats. But complacency and lack of maintenance of a defective appliance is not a good idea. It is noticeable that no new build boat is allowed to use one. For the reasons quoted.
