Re: Search err Mirage Manual

I think locating the original vents will be a hell of a challenge, and I would be much interested if you find a source. I gave up trying to find an original manual. I started writing down as I learnt things and ended up creating my own manual over 13 years of ownership. It seems to be the curse of a...

Re: Drinks holder

Not familiar with the Targo drinks holder, but I have flat acrylic holder with holes for 2 cups which got smashed. I bought some black sheet acrylic online (about A4 size), cut two holes with a hole cutter, cut to size/shape with hack saw and smoothed edges with fine glasspaper ... removed broken pi...

Re: Fairline Mirage Owners Manual

Built in 1981, I own the Mirage featured on the brochure for the Mark 2 model.
Never been able to find a manual.
Original petrol engines replaced with diesel, I ended up writing my own manual as best I could.

You will find online a very detailed workship manual for the VP 280 outdrives.

Re: A bit of history

I would start with a call to Fairline at Oundle. Collect all numbers from any plates you can find eg dash and transom, then give them a call.

Re: Engine part required

If its a Volvo Petrol engine can you establish its automotive connection ... ie what car was it used on ?
This may help in the search for a replacement.

Rubber pipe, metal, what is it .
How is it fixed to the tank.
What sort of access do you have to the tank ?
What sort of access do you have to the underside of the through deck fitting ?

Re: Weekender 21

You don't say where the problem is ... but it sounds a bit like outdrive bellows ?

It is very UNLIKELY that you cannot get spares for this.

It is most likely an Enfield or a Volvo Penta and you can get parts for both of these.

post some photos on here and we will soon tell you which.

Re: 1974 25' fury pump

take a look at the Cleghorn Waring web site. They are the JABSCO people.

It is highly likely that they have a repair kit for your pump (if it is running but not pumping .. ie diaphragm problem).
or give em a call they are very helpful

Re: Engine keeps cutting out

Actually, I would not have thought it was compression. This would undoubtedly impact smooth running and power etc (and maybe even starting) but if all spark plugs look good I would be looking somewhere else. I have doubts that these compression differences would cause the symptoms described. Fuel fi...

so it would sound like you don't need any help to solve the problem as you thankfully already have a solution.

Re: Algae in fuel tanks

I suspect that you can polish ad-nauseum, but if there is goop stuck on the baffles you will not get it off. Dip tubes for generators and diesel heaters usually have their own take off which does not reach the bottom of the fuel tank so that you cannot end up using all your fuel and unable to start ...
