  1. I have checked my records for you and I use a single 019XD battery which gives 100ah and 900CCA which I found at a decent price.
  2. Trying to work out how many alarms I will need. It appears to be one for the main cabin with the Morso, one for the main sleeping cabin and one for the BMC with the range and the cross bed. No idea where they can be fitted though, but I am sure someone will tell me once it is time for the BSS.

    3LW oil change

    I was talking about a normal multigrade used today rather than the Morris classic golden film oil which is a low dispersant dropping the crud into the sump. That just shows there are all sorts of oil available which is great but you need to understand what you are buying, it is not just some oil.

    I agree Gardners are massively over engineered compared to current engines but they were designed in the 30s after all and a simple SAE30 is what they expected to operate with. They will keep rolling even with much abuse unlike a more modern engine. A multigrade keeps all of the crud in suspension a simple SAE drops it in the sump and paper filter.

    It depends on what sump you have for the exact amount but I keeps 3 x 5 litre containers for that very same reason, plus of course another for the gearbox oil.

    3LW oil change

    Yes purely a breather filter which I personally change every 4 oil changes as they do not cost that much. I put a new one on when I got the engine as I was not sure how long the last had been on for. Probably overkill but I want to look after the engine for the long term.
  7. I went through here a week or so a go and met the lockies in the morning filling the pound after the Cape, this was a regular thing for them to do if they could get out to get it ready but yes the leakage on those gates is significant and looks like it is causing the problem every morning.

    It was aimed at Roland after the comments on the North Stratford.

    What boat were you steering as we are due through in a week or so?
  10. I still do not understand why there are not more pictures with the advert, 3 is not enough?
  11. Yes he will be sadly missed, he made us all think with his forthright views which is not a bad thing. RIP
  12. It is very sad and looking as it will still not be wide enough to stop two fast moving cyclists to get through without the strong possibility of crashing into each other, plus it narrows down the canal. I think what is needed is a way of slowing down the traffic along the towpath.
  13. Excellent report, sounds like more remedial works will be required, obviously Marquis is not the shallowest so was a good test.
  14. I think the answer is not yet. Any volunteers?
  15. SWMBO wants hexagrip so I need to find some and that is what we currently have and has lasted 9+ years.
