  1. Well there's a funny thing: The entry for Gordon in Canalplan comes up with a Springer of 38ft ish perhaps its been lengthened, which might explain the newer looking gas locker. Gordon Built by Springer UK Ltd - Length : 11.66 metres ( 38 feet 3 inches ) - Beam : 2.02 metres ( 6 feet 8 inches ) - Draft : 0.01 metres ( 0 feet ). Metal hull N/A power of 30 HP. Registered with Canal & River Trust number 72683 as a Powered Motor Boat. ( Last updated on Wednesday 22nd May 2013 )
  2. The direct link to "Then & Now" seems to be https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2019/jul/25/the-dramatic-transformation-of-britains-canals-photographs-then-and-now (I couldn't find it the first time around ? )
  3. @tree monkey CRT are sending a crane to fish it out; left Gloucester Docks this morning should be with you soon if it does't get stuck in any bridge 'oles
  4. Maybe it's because of this sad story? "Police are scouring the River Severn after a reports of a teenager falling into the water." https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/police-search-river-severn-after-16507299
  5. I think you'll find it was Multi-Coloured Swap Shop you are all thinking of, hosted by Noel Edmonds with Keith Chegwin, John Craven and, from 1978, the object of your adolescent (or later) attentions Maggie Philbin!
  6. Thanks for the 'heads up' about this I can now confirm that a Virgin SIM works in a Huawei E5186s-22a router and I can now use my 2500 minutes. ?
  7. Getting back to the OP's original question I believe the "14 mm" end is in fact a 1/4 inch "standpipe" end (verify by measuring the pipe) in which case bes.co.uk list this and other lengths supplied with nut and olive. Hope this is helpful.
  8. Just responding to @jonesthenuke's request for instructions.
  9. I have fitted one of the Hall Effect meters, details & instructions here on Aliexpress I successfully extended the Hall Effect cables to reach the batteries.
  10. I am getting an error message too "This site can’t be reached www.canalworld.net’s server IP address could not be found." I am using Linux Mint & Opera Browser but if I switch on VPN it connects OK
  11. That little cleat is the connection for a radio suppressor & is connected to the positive rectifier plate. This photo might help identifying stuff.
  12. Just checking... This cable should go to the warning lamp & the other terminal of the warning lamp to ignition.
  13. We were moored opposite Peels Wharf for a few days this week and there must have been 10 to 15 boats a day trying to use the facilities there and being sent away by the staff there (Manstal Limited) who were telling them to go to Fazeley Mill Marina but not telling them there was a water point near the junction. Some official signage really is needed. I was under the impression that the water point was going to remain but when I queried this with C&RT I received this reply.
  14. Coincidentally, I've just read Lock, Stock and Barrel (found in a canalside bookswap) and she does mention briefly owning an Iona but I've no idea if it's the one in question.
  15. You will find an illustration at https://www.amazon.it/ASL-908-Alternatore-trifase-63320111-63321136-63321190-11572700-lra01579-lra1579/dp/B06XFNQ8FP of what I believe is an Letrika (Iskra) alternator which is very similar except it does not have a W terminal. The Italian text is not too helpful! An older model with a W terminal is illustrated here https://hc-cargo.co.uk/catalog/p/113533--alternator It has a larger rectifier cover The large stud is the B+ terminal. The green wire comes from the diode trio (part of the rectifier assembly) Which in turn connects to the regulator via the block marked D+ which is also the warning light connection Hope this clarifies to some degree.
