  1. "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"?😎😎😎
  2. Why are you carrying a pair of trousers down the gunwale,just asking?😎😎😎
  3. Schematic of temperature sensor circuit taken from my thornycroft manual,.May be of use to someone?😎😎😎
  4. Being one of the lower order of lowbrow I would welcome the opportunity to be intellectually challenged and perhaps stimulate my brain cell given the chance to read the original post!! Time to go and lie down in my cave😎😎😎
  5. Most temp gauges work on a thermal resistence principle,i.e.the higher the temperature the lower the resistance thus a higher voltage is passed to the gauge causing the pointer to register a higher temperature. So one terminal is connected to the supply,12v, and the other is connected to the gauge in its simplest form.Is there a reading from terminal one to terminal two???😎😎. If the sender,sensor,has only one terminal it is a thermoswitch,which on reaching the excess temperature will short out,i.e.have a zero resistence,thus completing the circuit and switching the warning light on. A reading of between 150 to 450 ohms appears to be the most common value,both for switches and sensors however this is not set in stone
  6. The only thing you might try is to attempt your resealing on a really warm day,and put a small amount of silica crystals into the gap between the panes, never tried but it might work.😎😎😎😎
  7. Get your self a proper flexible hose clip driver,saves time and skinned knuckles!!!😎😎
  8. I bought my small flexible panel 2nd hand off fleabay,mounted it on a small aluminium frame,five years later still pushes out 18 plus volts on a good day.Just saying.😎😎😎
  9. A turnkey boat is supplied from the factory as a standard option with no customer input with regard to layout of extra equipment.😎😎😎

    Mystery object.

    Thanks for the replies,now who wants to give me 50 quid for it!!!😎😎😎
  12. Anybody got any idea what this is?😎😎 The flying saucer is about 15cm in diameter,and the steel cord attached to the rod and saucer is about a metre long,found it in a lock a few years ago.
  13. Just noticed this Brexit thing,perhaps I ought to get into the discussion,I think I'll start from post one and work my way up,see you next Thursday!!!😎😎😎
  14. Looks like a Mitsubishi K series engine,possibly a K3c,I think Vetus use an M prefix for there model numbers.😎😎😎😎 Vetus engines are usually painted yellow,so this may be a Thorneycroft,as mine is painted a similar colour.
  15. One of my cats brought home a frozen chicken still in the plastic wrapper,invading Russia would have been a walk in the park.The window cleaner always made sure the cat wasn't about as Daley would climb up the ladder after him!!!😎😎😎
