  1. Your best bet is see how warm the pipe from the exhaust manifold gets - it is the one that sticks up on the left hand side of your picture. That one is getting direct heat from the exhaust I think I can see a thermostat housing on the far end of the engine, otherwise it would be useful to have some more pictures. There are a variety of ways the cooling system on these engines can be set up Richard
  2. It actually lost one in that last advert, and is now back to the correct number Richard
  3. It has moved from Pillings lock then. Unless something has changed since I last saw her, "She has got a newly refurbished lister 3 cylinder engine which is in pristine condition" isn't exactly correct Richard
  4. With a proper clockwork mechanism, they'll be brass. The lacquer has started to deteriorate Best bet to protect the mechanisms is to take them apart, then the cases can be properly stripped polished and relacquered Richard
  5. On the 'Where are we on the BCN??', I wouldn't worry too much about it, it endlessly confuses everyone. The Gower branch starts at Albion Junction near Dunkirk stop and includes the Brades locks - that's a lot of names for not many places. The Atherstone flight is bloody miles long and is just the Atherstone flight Try sorting out the 'Old Turn' 'Gas Street' 'Sandy Turn' conundrum! The first BCN Challenge we competed on had all of these junctions scored separately before Roy and John sensibly simplified things Richard
  6. Based on many excursions to retrieve spanners from similar bilges, it will be mostly water with some oil floating on the top.
  7. You don't understand the concept of short selling Richard
  8. No, you won't need to. The gaskets are already coated Richard
  9. It is also planned based on the worst conditions the engine is going to experience. For engines that are in boats, the intervals will be based on what the industrial engine would have done And boat engines don't run flat out for 300 hours as generators, or thrash about on building sites, or swallow lots of dust and debris on farms Boat engines have a pretty cushy life Richard
  10. no, but they might want to charge their batteries
  11. Our distressed 2.2 has no flywheel, so that's no help...
  12. You have just as much success if you took in your boat registration number
  13. You often find them on industrials, rarely on marine ones Are you really having trouble finding the filters? Richard
  14. I used to work with someone who as a young apprentice would service Rovers, probably in the early 1950's A full service included repairing minor paint damage Richard
  15. If you have no filter, just put the old one back I wouldn't mess around in case you get dirty from one side of the filter to the other Richard
