Re: Fairline36 turbo shower mixer head through ceiling

That makes no sense at all! Is it possible that yours isn't a pressurised system? Just wondering if somebody has converted it with micro switches in the taps to switch the pump on and off instead of the system being constantly pressurised?

Re: Fairline36 turbo shower mixer head through ceiling

The parts are still available, I think I got mine from amazon. There's also a good video on youtube showing the stripdown and overhaul of one, not mounted in a boat but the same unit. The problem I had was in freeing the mixer part, it obviously hadn't been turned for years and was seized solid. I c...

Re: hello

I had a holiday that was repowered with a lancing marine ford transit engine. The engine was fine (although noisy) but the 270 leg kept falling to bits. It was a fast boat, but needed a lot of revs to get it on the plane. 140-150hp is the minimum, I always thought it would have cruised nicely with 2...

Re: fairline 40 revamp

Unless you do the work yourself, I don't think you'll get the money back that you spend on a freshen-up. I'd be inclined to give it a good clean and get it listed as is, accepting that it's not going to make as much as a well looked after example. Could be worth having a chat with some brokers and g...

Re: Fairline Turbo 36 restoration

Looking very nice!
Our helm seat certainly needs sorting out now, it broke off coming into Dover in a force 8.
Carried out a strong, but untidy repair and currently in Holland but it will need replacing when we get back.
Hope you're enjoying the weather!

Re: volvo outdrives

Volvo specify ordinary engine oil (15-40, possibly?) But when I had one rebuilt, the engineering company used, and recommended, EP90.

Re: Tamd41 overheating. Heat exchanger

Hi, sorry but as the heat exchanger is one unit sealed at one end, don’t you simply fill it with the cleaner and leave to soak? Not sure what the cut fender will do? I have TAMD41B and this is how I did mine. For the oil cooler, yes it can be this done way. Regards, Lee That does sound a lot easier...

Re: Tamd41 overheating. Heat exchanger

Most people will leave it overnight, I just do it until it stops fizzing and looks clean which can take a few hours.

Re: Tamd41 overheating. Heat exchanger

Cut the top off an old fender to make a tall, narrow bucket and use this to soak it in brick cleaner.
