      Hi, been talking to Mottie about the clutch on our diesel FR-V. He advised I talk to you.

      Wondered how much it would be and whether it was worth using Honda-branded parts.

      He advised replacing clutch, DMF and release bearing, would you agree?

      Thanks and best wishes

      Hi Burnerman, I shut off the mains and valves under the sink, undid hoses at the valve end, secured the tap, replaced everything. There is full supply in the bath, the tap has hot but now no cold. I shut the valve, undid the hose, turned it on, no water comes out. All I did was shut off the cold valve under the sink, remove the hose briefly, then put everything back, nothing else touched. Any advice? Best, SK

      Hi Burnerman, I just read a post you replied to about fitting a shock arrestor to a washing machine hose. I'm a service engineer and we discovered that we have now gone from water towers to pumping stations so the pressure in some properties went from 1 bar to 7 bar! One guys hot water cylinder was shaking in the garage and he could hear it in his house.

        We had to recommend installing a non dynamic valve, a pressure reducing valve that doesn't work on a spring. By installing it after the stop tap on the incoming mains it protects all appliances too.

        Some newbuilds I go to have the washing machine cold water supply coming from the balanced cold, this also causes water hammer. I thought I would give you aheads up incase you encounter more of these issues

        Take care

        Oh and we check the pressure on the outside tap, that is usually mains supply. Buyapressure gauge from screwfixor toolstation, it's a monument gauge ;-)

      BURNERMAN.Worcester Danesmoor 20/25.Just replaced Honeywell Y..Restart and got the lockout. Couldn't get all parts for programmer and to turn on needs a hefty bang..Press the red button the igniters flashing. Power to oil pump solenoid.No power to motor. Lockout. Removed Burner and stripped out oil pump which was dry.Turned okay and the fan turned easily.Obviously no fan, no start up purge ,no oi pumping ,no burn.

      Hi Burnerman, I saw in a post that you had a user manual for a Therecon 100/150 oil boiler. I have one fitted and my husband cant find any instructions. We want to drain the heating system at some point and move a radiator but cant find the filling loop, do you know how to fill the system up again after the radiator has been moved. We are new to oil boilers and there are no instructions with this one. Thanks

      Hi Burnerman,
      're weeping pressure adjustment screw on a danfoss BFP 41L3 pump. Can the screw be removed 'fibre' washered and refitted? Or is it not that simple?

      Wondering about screw/bolt spacings and layout for sistering joists. Using 4 × 2" to level up old sagging joists to lay new floor. Flat below and lots of cabling and pipes hence the use of 4" timber. How should i layout the timberlok screws? Two one above the other at 600mm centres or one at 300mm centres staggered in zigzag pattern top and bottom?

      Hi fella,
      I managed to add a picture of where I can see the flame on my boiler. Any chance you could have a look and tell me if it is normal? It is where you suspected though!

        Hi Dave
        No, that process is completely unknown to me, but it sure sounds interesting! I've never come across brazing wire suitable for a MIG torch either. Obviously the brazed joint can't be held fluid as with oxy gear but I'd like to give it a bash!
        Cheers for the info

        The price is a bit eye watering! £240 odd quid for 4Kg. That's a lot of wire though, and the proper stuff for castings etc. Must be smaller quantities available.
        Looking a bit more though, it looks like you need pure argon. I use an argon mix.
