    Non starter

    Just crack (not undo) the nuts at the injector end of all 4 pipes and crank the engine until bubble free fuel is coming out of at least two of them. If you can reach (or have an assistant), you can even nip up the injector nut once bubble free, while continuing to crank, and the engine should fire.
  2. Ditto with Premium Bonds. But because the prize money has to be funded out of interest on the stake rather than half the total stake money on the National Lottery (the other half going to good causes), the prize fund is correspondingly less.

  4. Although a laid up boat would have been available to hire out to Barlows if the need arose.
  5. Some years ago we had a stowaway rat on Fulbourne. Never saw it, but you could hear it moving round at night, and we found that it had been nesting in a much-chewed sleeping back stored under one of the bunks. In it's time with us it munched its way through most of the packetted food in the kitchen, as well as the contents of the first aid kit and a tube of sun cream, without apparently coming to much harm. We had a rat trap, and heard it go off in the middle of the night, but all we caught was the skin off its tail. I never did find out what happened to it - whether it left the boat of its own accord, or whether one of the fellow owners disposed of its remains.
  6. You'd have been a bit miffed if Majestic Wine had substituted teabags!
  7. I wouldn't take (Fu)lboune's livery as definitively correct. And Angel was painted in similar (but not identical) colours. But you do raise an interesting question - should the roof be blue on a wartime livery boat? And should the handrail be red? And if so, the same colour as the cabin side or pillar box red?
  8. What does the coolant level look like 20 minutes after stopping the engine? If it is still (almost) full, but by next morning it is 2 litres lower, then 2 litres of coolant has either emptied into the bilge or into the engine. With the coolant unpressurised hardly any will find it's way through a failed head gasket into the cylinder, so it must have gone somewhere else.

  10. Just don't get caught in the store with a pair of pliers. 😃
  11. Ray, Do you know the date of that picture and the identity of the motor, still in its GUCCC wartime livery, and still sporting it's original pigeon box?
  12. Or the electric version of this.

    It would appear so. The building has been converted into flats. I wonder what happened to the Glossor. https://www.onephotographaday.org.uk/former-dry-dock-pub-windmill-end-netherton/#.X8Eq30-nzqs
  14. It's where the landowner permits you to walk across the land, but where you have no right to do so.
  15. 'Broadcast'? I think your spellchecker has got the better of you! (Should be Broadcut / Broad Cut).
