      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.
        Cheers

      Save dragging that welding thread further OT. Not that we ever do that of course. . .
      I'm seeing just under 48V at 140A, about 43.5V at 80A on that SIP 140. No rating plate at all that I can see of course. It should go down to 30A, mine doesn't at the moment because the adjuster goes tight. Another of those "little jobs". That seem to expand into an afternoon these days. TBH I probably won't bother. I don't use it that much, and I have the MIG for smaller work.
      Be interested to hear how you get on. I may well try that DIY carbon holder.
      Another "little job"! :)
      Hope this helps.
