  1. I just looked at the on-line manual, it is called the air pressure switch.
  2. Got one working a few years ago, the problem was spiders below the terminal on the top of the boiler not letting the air / exhaust mixture be correct. If you take off the top of the terminal it is the first bit of gubbins you see, a bicycle pump sorted it out.
  3. They look like tide marks up the door glass. Good stove though.
  4. Every time I pass that way there seems to be a spillage of some sort between the junction and the winding hole about 3/4 mile towards Fradley.
  5. When I worked with a fleet of Lister LH150 gear boxes it was usually cured by either removing the control cable from gear shift, rev engine up then manually shift gear leaver by hand, if that doesn't shift it remove a bolt from gear box lid, take out centre bolt of piston housing, screw in longer bolt from gear box lid and tighten, that pushes lever in box to separate drive.
  6. That "vent pipe" is meant to take water from a water-cooled manifold, and to be forced out through the outboard bearing.
  7. Talking to a wide beam owner today, he has the boat 2 1/2 years, he has had enough, selling it to buy a narrowboat so he can go cruising.
  8. Sorry about that, I should have known better as I have done 2 BSS examinations on her.
  9. Anne is now lived on in Oxford on the canal agenda 21 [I think that was what they are called] moorings above Jerico. She is still unpowered.
  10. Saw one of day boats at Harefield Marina for sale on Saturday.
  11. It was moored in an earlier life at the end of Lisson Grove moorings in London.
  12. I was was told off a few years ago for going along breasted up with another powered narrow boat, I was told you only move another boat by towing it astern.
  13. I have done Runcorn Locks, like you say, bet not many of us.
  14. That would have been the Robin Hood on the A54 Buxton Rd
  15. Hatton for me in the early 60's before the trees and scrub took over
