    Known as the "Italian tune up".

    Long Term Mooring on the Coventry Canal

    This list does have Barry Hawkins details for Baddesley. May be what you have already seen. https://www.waterways.org.uk/waterways/canals_rivers/coventry_canal/boatyards

    There is a listing of marinas on canaljunction: http://www.canaljunction.com/boat/marinas_midlands.htm Baddesley is not on it 😫

    Tamworth Cruising Club at the bottom of Glascote 2 sometimes have spaces but I think they are limited on length.

    How about Baddesley in Atherstone itself? Probably difficult to get a space though. Or the on line moorings at the bottom of the locks towards Grendon?

    Alde boiler just for heating water

    I don't have one either but the boss where one could be fitted is there. You might have to look for it depending on which way the calorifier is fitted e.g it could be at the bottom of a horizontal calorifier. Think about a way to prevent the inverter from powering the immersion to save your batteries if it is switched on when you are not plugged in to shore power.

    You don't have an immersion heater in the calorifier then? That would see off the units remaining and give you hot water.

    Voltage on a new starter battery

    Best put it in the oven then but remember to take it off first. My grandad dropped his hearing aid in the toilet once then put it in the oven to dry. It didn't do the plastic any good at all. Good job there were no pies in with it.

    Alternator not charging quickly enough

    Well there's the Oxford pound and the Coventry pound so spoilt for choice.☺️

    You can find a good selection at pound shops. A selection of about 20 for your quid.

    Recommend me a battery setup

    You would need a big enough inverter to run the heating element. This comes back to Alan De Enfield's earlier post.

    JP/JK pulley

    I wonder if adhesive technology has come on enough to be able to cut then rejoin the belt?

    Alan is here alluding to the fact that new washers and other things that have electronics controlling them do not take kindly to modified sine wave inverters. If your Stirling is sold as pure sine wave you should be OK but there are no guarantees. This is because the heater uses a lot of power. You can arrange for the machine to run with warmed water from the calorifier by using a mixer valve in the cold feed or as suggested earlier pour hot into the soap tray. Method 1 means that you cannot do cold rinses but this has not been an issue for me.

    Water pump woes

    but some taps do have filters where the water goes in as well

    Engine just cut out

    You weren't thinking of using a full jar for Bizz's wheeze surely? That would never work. Maybe puffer fish might
