  6. Independence - Updates | Maintenance & Care

    It says on the web site that this system is a 3 way, two heads and...one hand held.if you had this you could check whether the commanders on fly and helm are the problem? Or take it into the engine room and observe the actuators at work?

    imho, the only way the system would stop the engine on tick over would be that the mechanical stop for tick over on the engine had moved, allowing the engine to be below what it will tick over at, reading the other faults he has and a quick flick through that manual! actuator travel may well turn out to be a cause of his woes, but i am no expert just looking at the problem in theory

  9. Independence - Updates | Maintenance & Care

    hi, does your system give any fault codes , ? you should surly be able to look what,s wrong up in the manual/installation guide,, if you can see the display,i have to do this most days on modern boilers, if you have the manual ?

    spot on , mtb 102 is now restricted ,so a full throttle would do this, as the blocks must be worn ,kid gloves1

    However there could be a seal on the turbo that has let some oil pass where it is not meant - Maybe or more likely the seal has, but as you have just worked the engine,s maybe harder than they ever have been,in the past ,you could find that youhave "run the seals back in" and the oil on the filters ect is the residue of this process, trust me if you had a turbo oil seal go you would not see behind the boat!!., 007 smoke screens would look like toys!!
  12. Fridge

    Trouble is a small system on a waeco fridge needs to have a test point cut in ,a car air con service are plug in ,isotherm do a remote condenser unit which has a reusable plug in coupling, i made an old fridge into new fridge one one of my boats,with this system, (still going strong), i know how to do it just getting hold of a fridge engineer who can be bothered with a small job, i used to do fridge work, but on an industrial scale, oh bring back r22!!

    Dec 2002 - Accounts vary, but apparently the grease was called 'crabfat' because it resembled in color the ointment used to treat sailors for 'crabs' (pediculosis pubis, genital lice), and of which fat was a major constituent. i pasted this, lazy typist! or, a submarriner?....no RAF!
