    The tri fuel exige

    8th Feb Quarry wood shoppng complex outside Halfords. Sure stands ot amongst all the black, silver and grey euro boxes.
  2. They are listing a lot of nice kit in good nick from various trades which looks dodgy. I think the serial nos should be registered with Festool as nicked. Seem to rememer my son saying they hold onto them if they ever come back for repair and have been listed as nicked. We engrave post codes or phone nos deep into the plastic or ally on our kit. They are used and serviced until dead so doesnt matter what they look like. Oh and sharpie details all over the boxes as well.
  3. Mine was an 88 Stevens but I do seem to remember having to blead air out at the heater matrix pipes as well.
  4. By upper rear panel do you mean above the fuel tank. From memory you only have the tank sender and purge pump in that area.
  5. Brake lines. Hand brake cables.

  7. Cheers for all your help. Replaced them and still no go so new combustion control unit fitted. Not quite as bad as first feared but £381 on a 3.5 year old boiler is not on. Thanks once again. Turns out its now got an upgraded version so they obviously use customers to road test the boiler.
  8. The follow on from this was today his mum and I helped drop his kit of at Cranwell to start training, going to be quite an intense but exciting year for him. Needless to say very proud parents but tinged with a bit of sadness that we wont see much of him going forwards.
  9. Many thanks have ordered 5 . Its worth a gamble, the worse that can happen is its US just like it is now. Ive got more pics it does look like grey band to me.
  10. It looks like red, brown, black, black, grey or silver, brown. I will photograph it in sunlight tomorrow and hopefully get a better picture.
  11. Yes sorry they are tiny. Those 2 little f%^&ers are going to cost me £500 if I cant find some and replace them. Its a baxi fan control board only 3 years old but out of guarantee. The gas fitter has had them go on 3 of this model boiler. Its half the cost of the boiler. Not happy. If I can find the surface mount ones is there a problem fitting the through board ones?
  12. Can any one advise me what component these are the burnt out one and the one to the left please.
  13. Once the fame has gone and with the aspergers it would not suprise me if she ends up with a whole bunch of mental health issues and none of todays hangers on to help her through it.
  14. I bet it costs a lot more that £10k to go from usable to concourse.
