Re: Full Tanks For Winter?

Usual wisdom is
Petrol - empty ('old' petrol can degrade and block carburettors )

diesel bug)

Re: servicing outdrives

On the River Thames, for example, I would allow £2,000 to include lift out and re-launch, service both drives with genuine Volvo parts assuming that to be new bellows and oil. If there are seals to be replaced then that would be extra. I mention Thames as its prob one of the most expensive areas for...

Re: Fuel filter for Fairline Holiday

you will get a metal bowl from ASAP Supplies, but don't forget that you will also need a metal bung. A plastic screw bung will get you a BSS fail. There is a Racor fuel filter with sea thru bowl which does comply with BSS, it has a large pudding bowl shield and gives that visibility which is, as you...

Re: Search err Mirage Manual

I think locating the original vents will be a hell of a challenge, and I would be much interested if you find a source. I gave up trying to find an original manual. I started writing down as I learnt things and ended up creating my own manual over 13 years of ownership. It seems to be the curse of a...

Re: Fairline Mirage Owners Manual

Built in 1981, I own the Mirage featured on the brochure for the Mark 2 model.
Never been able to find a manual.
Original petrol engines replaced with diesel, I ended up writing my own manual as best I could.

You will find online a very detailed workship manual for the VP 280 outdrives.

Re: A bit of history

I would start with a call to Fairline at Oundle. Collect all numbers from any plates you can find eg dash and transom, then give them a call.

Re: Engine part required

If its a Volvo Petrol engine can you establish its automotive connection ... ie what car was it used on ?
This may help in the search for a replacement.

Re: Weekender 21

You don't say where the problem is ... but it sounds a bit like outdrive bellows ?

It is very UNLIKELY that you cannot get spares for this.

It is most likely an Enfield or a Volvo Penta and you can get parts for both of these.

post some photos on here and we will soon tell you which.

Re: 1974 25' fury pump

take a look at the Cleghorn Waring web site. They are the JABSCO people.

It is highly likely that they have a repair kit for your pump (if it is running but not pumping .. ie diaphragm problem).
or give em a call they are very helpful
