Result! I have the solenoid and barbs at a good price.
I emailed Charlie at Tinley Tech having resigned myself to paying £40 for the hardware
Charlie had an alternative option - an item listed on the tt website as petrol solenoid that comes with 8mm barbs.
I have it here and its actually marked "Petrol - LPG - CNG"
Fitting this weekend.
LPCG – I remembered it as bigger than 70 and two of them! Must be getting old.
These days I’d argue that 2t gave great power to weight but I bet that’s not the case with yours
Smells can be a problem in a boat – diesel has been the cause of seasickness for me. But an old fashioned 2t oil (arghhh for the smell of Castrol R) could be forgiven if its not smoking too heavily.
I thought the sound when ‘in the power’ is one of nicest engine noises – right up there with a rotary. Although rough idling and bogging down are disconcerting (and detonating sounds are sphincter loosening).
Go for it – dust it off, reach for the mirror shades and get it screaming across the water like it’s the 70’s again! Its what the RNLI donations were meant for.
