  2. And for anyone considering ths engine, there appears to be a horrible bodged repair to the gearbox oil cooler pipe on the first photo. A great fist of parcel tape around it, or something.

  5. And nor am I, and nor is anyone else it would seem....
  6. Asking price £2,600 according to the advert. Reasonable enough but hardly a screaming bargain.
  7. And while we're on the subject, I hear Yorkshire teenagers are now taking Ecstacy a new way, by injecting it into their mouths. They are call it "E by gum".
  8. Which of course is completely different from when did you last see it? My suspicion is there are many months between when she last saw it and when she discovered it was "gone".
  9. The what??!! Could this be what is putting people off?
  10. Yes you are right about the way people shut off when they hear mention of Ohm's Law. Weird given how simple it is. One cannot get mathematics more basic, it is equations at their simplest. However, reviewing the OP he didn't ask how to work out the right cable size, he asked what cable size to use. So wants us to work it out for him. In order to do this we need some concrete info from the OP please: 1) Actual length the cable will be 2) What exactly it will be powering so we can look up the manufacturer's allowable volt drop
  11. Whilst agreeing with you I think Tony has put his finger on it and highlighted why I felt the need to query your post. When the manu claims a cable is good for 10A (say), they are making no claims about how many or how few volts will be dropped. The cable 'spec' is all about the insulation performance and nothing more. My point is to work out a suitable size for a cable one needs to use Ohm's Law, not rely the label on the reel. And to use Ohm's Law, first one needs to decide what volt drop is acceptable for the equipment being powered.
  12. She cant answer even the most basic questions, e.g. when and where did she last see her (supposed) bote?
  13. Consensus is the OP's bloke has pushed off with the boat, and she wants to know where he is.
  14. C'mon, that's rubbish Shirley!! The same current may drop the same voltage, but for 12v to deliver the same power as 240v, the current has to be 20 times larger so the cable would prolly catch fire
  15. Wire specification in "Amps" is meaningless, a dumbed down specification that ignores most of the reasons for picking any given size of conductor. To specify your cable first you need to decide or know what voltage drop along it you (or the equipment you will run from it) will tolerate. Then you need to know the current in the conductor. Then you can use Ohm's Law to work out how low the resistance of the cable needs to be, then you can compare this with cable specifications available and select the right size.

  20. Yep, agreed, the difference of £400 is astonishing!!!
  21. I'd say for Vetus parts, Vetus have the monopoly. Will be cheaper to buy a new pump than a Vetus repair kit, I predict. IF they sell the kit in the first place that is!
