    That's not the problem. Get it to SMS you ... I'm hot, over inflated and ready to blow a seam. It never ceases to amaze me how I can inflate a tender and during the night in the water it feels limp and I start worrying about leaks and in the mid day sun the next day ready to pop.

    Mini update.

    M18 to 1/8 npt adapters arrived. Perfect fit in the intake manifold.

    I then fitted some gauges I got ages ago. Good news is I can see both with the engine hatch up.





    Just waiting for the other bits to arrive and see how that goes!

    Sorry but the car tyre sensors are far more sexy!

    I'm beginning to understand why the kids keep telling me I'm NOT hip and trendy.

    Have you got Spotify music app?

    They do their own playlists and I found one call “yacht rock”. Lots of Genesis tracks. Obviously they know the demographic and cool level of most boat owners

    I'm cooler than that. My tastes are exhausted by the 80's

    J,

    I say it's a serious mod as I wouldn't dare get a compressor for car tires near my rib, rib pressures are in the .2bar and tyres in the 2bar range, you hit the pushbutton, you're after a new rib, simples One should have a v. efficient and fast over-pressure bypass, wouldn't gamble...

    Stabs are fine thank you
    Not doing much as generator engine packed up, halfway between removing it from the e/r and getting it to mechanic to do a full overhaul (well full means rings, metals, seals as everything is OK)
    Improved my programming and reduced the response delay, finally fixed the rolling average routine yesterday, so I think I'm okay for now.
    Next project is to redo the pipework and test it again when the gen is back in place (recon two months earliest)
    But it's cold, had a fair amount of work at real work, so took it easy.

    Stab news after Easter I recon, before the start of the season (for me)

    Farsco,

    not sure these gauges are going to function in this spot for long...
    Would be best if you added a nipple there, a couple of meters of tubing and then the gauge away from the heat and vibration of the engines.
    Further the gauges don't look like they're filled with glycerine (or whatever that liquid is) which I'm told is necessary (don't remember why though...)

    For sure you're going to find if turbos work right, like now! End of next summer, not too sure.

    cheers

    V.

    I agree Vas. They are just filling the hole until the valve caps arrive. Only £4 each so they defo won’t last but I was only planning on checking the boost pressures.

    In the last 8 months, I’ve cleaned both intercoolers, dismantled and reassembled all the pipe work, had a new Turbo on one and had the other rebuilt so the reading will be what it will be!
