  1. I have a HA2 with a leaky fuel return pipe, not actually the spill rail but the copper pipe which joins onto that. I think the olive is misshapen so it's allowing fuel to weep out of the join. The simple solution would be to replace this olive, but... Once the copper pipe leaves the spill rail, it then runs back on itself, going uphill and joins the overflow fuel pipe from the day tank, back to the main tank. It's only supported at either end, although it does have "loops" in the copper pipe I don't think the vibration of the engine generally does it much of a favour in the long term. A very short distance from the spill rail is the fuel filter. What I'd like to do, to reduce the run of the pipe and to make it look a lot neater and to keep it out of the way is to connect the fuel return back into the filter. I've read this is bad practice on a JP as they don't like any form of back pressure on the return, but can't find a definitive answer for the HA engines. Anyone able to help? Thanks in advance, Liam
  2. Unfortunately not mate, being roped in to help dry dock a boat over Easter in Braunston.
  3. I've only been in Wetherspoons in the past few years of visiting. The last time I went to go in the one directly behind the museum about 7 years ago, after just boating to EP via the Ship Canal for Easter, the door burst open just as I went for the door handle, the result of a bloke having been beaten up and then thrown out. I stayed for 1 pint with a mate and then went back to the boat for a bit of peace. It's called the Horse & Jockey if I remember rightly.
  4. The nearest pub is just outside the back door, and then further drinking establishments can be found in the town, which is out the back door, past under the motorway and over past the railway bridge, including a Wetherspoons.
  5. Definitely wasn't me!
  6. Found earlier today, in the Bridgewater Canal at old Trafford near Throstle's Nest Bridge. A rather grim way of finding a body.
  7. I'm in Sale, and have an aquavac you're welcome to use. Where are you moored?
  8. It's still £40 for a week, but there is also now an option of a 3 day permit which costs £20. This may be where the confusion comes from.
  9. Yep cheers Steve
  10. You'll be fine moored up along the Sale moorings, lots of boats overnight here and it's very handy for either Brooklands or Sale metro. Pop in to Sale CC for a pint too, they're open till about half 5 today.
  11. The elsan point is inside the block which is locked so only a chosen few can access but the water point is outside on the left of the block, there's also another water point just past the toilet block near a boat called Irwell. If you're after elsan emptying and coming from wigan way you can use the facility at Worsley, inside the brick building opposite the boat house (black and white wooden gates on the opposite side).
  12. You'll struggle as the gate is only open on match days for the trip boat. It's not too far to walk from Castlefield or just simply jump on the tram at Deansgate Castlefield and jump off at Old Trafford
