Have a look for makers part number 1806   its on a different picture to the one you are looking at, one end of it fits on to the safety outlet pipe in your picture.  Sorry I can't copy the picture from my work laptop onto here. key number 27 in parts diagrams.

its on the heating side    open the old one up to release system pressure  whip the old one out and stick the new one in a bit sharp and you won't have to drain the whole system.   forgot to say before you whip the old prv out make sure its open and pump the expansion vessel up to about 0.8 bar.

To check if expansion vessel needs re-pressurising top boiler up to just over one bar when the system is cold. Put the heating on and watch the pressure gauge..if the pressure rises over 3bar then the vessel is flat. Pressure relief valves start letting water out of the system at 3 bar, so when the system cools down again water has leaked out of the system so the pressure goes down to zero. The pressure relief pipe should goes to outside so you don't notice any leaks. On your boiler the pressure relief pipe is the one to the left hand side closest to the front of the boiler see if you can find where that goes to and if it has been dripping. Expansion vessels can usually be pumped back up but prv may need replacing.

also if you can get to the expansion vessel  valve undo cap when cold, press valve in to release air and if water comes out its knackered.  I learned that when mine went and as above my system was running passed 3bar which alerted me to the problem


Doesn't always mean its knackered. If you can still pump the water out of the other side and pump the vessel up to about 0.8 bar you should be ok. You need to have an open end on the system somewhere to pump the water out of the vessel to pressurise it properly.

The second accident was not far from my home,got caught in the traffic after the third one on our way to cardiff. Sad to see the ducatti on the side of the road travelling home later.Radio wales had quite a balanced phone in about the weekend fatalities/accidents on monday morning where the general conclusion was ALL road users need to take more care.

Hardly middle of nowhere just off a465 heads of the valleys road, by the bit that is currently being turned into a dual carriageway.  15 mins from my house. I would hear it if the wind was in the right direction. Sadly I can't believe it will ever happen :\

Perhaps I missed the gist of this with the view down my street on page 1 of this thread, so today I walked up my street and over the mountain behind for 20 minutes. Looking north to the Brecon Beacons



And to the south back down to Merthyr Tydfil and the Taff valley

both straight from camera because Im not clever enough to do anything else :(

Treated myself to that set and a set like this http://www.halfords.com/motoring/garage-equipment/tool-chests-tool-boxes/halfords-professional-5-drawer-chest-7-drawer-chest
in the summer. Garage much tidier now and I know where all my tools are!  All seems good quality.

« on: 08 October 2014, 10:20:03 am »
I had the ABBA stand with the correct fitting kit for my z1000sx. You had to be ever so careful when fitting it to the lifting points. I ended up scratching the frame. Best to protect the area around the lifting points. I was always nervous when lifting the bike, did not really ever get used to it.


Same here with my z1000 also bought the front lift arm but, the zed is so front heavy it doesn't have the leverage to lift the front wheel. The bike lift does look tempting but not sure it would work for me.

Looking south from the a4059 over the a470 below. Watch out for the sheep they are truly suicidal. Think I managed my first ever stoppie avoiding one of them last wednesday.

view from top of a4601  Brecon beacons in the distance towards the right. If you follow the road down to the a4059 that takes you over the mountain across to the a470 about a mile south of the storey arms and beacons themselves.  All within 15 mins of where I live.

Unfortunately Wednesdays trip involved that most embarrassing of bike accidents.  I fell over when stopped. Dolgellau to barmouth to home was a rather painfull experience. Bike rolled forward on side stand when I was sat on it, foot caught between bike and curb so ended up pointing backwards with ankle nearly flat on floor,knee twisted wrong way + me  and nearly 200kilos of z1000 leaning on it all. Fortunately due to a very low pain threshold and the ability to scream like a girl I attracted the attention of a couple of people in a car park 100yds down the road. Honestly thought I had broken my ankle the crunching noises my leg made on the way down and the angle my foot was at when I was stuck :eek .  Spent thurs in local minor injuries unit. Nothing broken thankfully  only my phone screen and my pride ;)   On a brighter note my leg did prevent any damage to the bike

Nick if you are anything like me, most of what you have read in this thread might as well be  blah,blah, blah, blah,windows,blah, blah,memory,blah,blah,blah.  Last pc I had by the time it got to 2.5 years old I used to have to switch it on an hour before I wanted to use it because it would take so long to do updates and whatever other mysterious things they have to do to keep working. My mac is now five years old and hasn't slowed down a bit.I just want a computer to switch on and work, not have to "maintain" it ffs. As far as I am concerned it should be like any other domestic appliance you buy, use it till it doesn't work anymore then change it.

If you are "friends" with a student go to an apple store and ask about educational discounts.


CHRISTOOOOOOOOO!!!  :lol


evesdad, I don't think I need convincing that it's a good system, but have to be sure at that price.


Ha, you'll have to start being nice to me now! :lol

Apple's main problem (which I also faced when I tried Linux) is the lack of compatability. Unfortunately for Apple users, Windows is pretty much a global standard, most software is written for it. Sure, you can get emulators, but if you have to do that, why not get the original from the word go?

I personally don't like Apples. I don't like the layout, I don't like their prices, I don't like the fact that 90% of Apple devotees have hipster beards, berets, and drink wheatgrass and carrot juice (sorry evesdad! :lol ).



ChrisoT  I'm bald as a coot wear a Dai cap and only eat red meat ;)    Hip I ain't!

Nick I am a computer numpty, had my mac since 2009  used daily Mostly just browsing internet I will admit.  In that time I could probably count the number of times it has crashed or I have had to force quit anything on the fingers of both hands ( always after visiting "dodgy" sites). Apple sends regular updates for security/bugs.Latest change from mountain lion to mavericks was a free download. I still use i photo for photographs it allows basic editing/sorting. Daughter is bit of an apple fan, on her second macbook and we have just bought her a new iMac . She also uses an iPad to type up letters in uni. Works iPhone and my mac automatically synch calendars with each other. Can use google chrome browser and synch youtube etc to chrome cast plugged in to my tv. iTunes music plays through my airplay enabled av amp and all set themselves up as I wouldn't have a clue! Mac also comes with all the "home" software you need!
