  1. That was a great way before my hearing went south try some vac gauges there brill for setting up multi carb systems correctly, one time when hearing was ok?set some carbs then checked with gauges wasnt that far out but you have to have that lug ole that works !!!
  2. I have found most N/boaters like and do tend to moor up leaving a 20ft space between them and the next one on visitor moorings leaving not enough room for any one else even when there all friends they will not raft up or moor end to end this is mainly on the R Trent and R Witham lets hope on the few occasions we come to the lovely broads usually a trip down for 2 wks a year it does not get overrun with them and some but not all have the attitude of ( look at that plastic/wood crap) etc etc OK rant over but after locking through 54 of the buggers on Sunday and hearing various comments from the boaters got my blood boiling I can only hope that the broads does not get full of them from the canals with this attitude as at the end of the day we are all boaters

  4. The survey was commissioned by the seller? get your own and at the same time a valuation needed for insurance purposes and how long if any the Bss cert etc you could be saving a small fortune on the asking price as any defects could be price negotiable. Good luck Craig
  5. HI Frank yes it is very straight forward fitting a D2/4 eber the only real fiddly bit is connecting the copper tube from the off tap to the heater inlet as the said inlet has a flared nipple that needs carefully filing down as to fit the 4mm olive over Don't cut the inlet down as it will not leave enough tube to fit the fitting and also fit all the wiring through any bulkheads before you attach the plugs/sockets and you also need to lag the S/S exhaust with exhaust wrap hope this helps Regards Craig
