    Gabriel,

    Please can you go through the steps 4, 5, and 6, in my above suggestions. these are necessary to isolate the cause of your problem. As the fuel bowls are full,the engine should start and run for a short time even with the pump not connected. If the engine starts, check the if ignition light goes out.

    Glad that you blokes understand this stuff. Thanks Willy: I went ahead and closed up the control unit (always a big moment for me because of the way the new wiring gets squashed in the box, and I imagine the stripped ends easing out of their terminals) and then introduced some power to the circuit.
    Lo and behold, the fan feed goes live when I slide the rather annoying slider switch on the con...

    Progress update. The offending drivers door issues have been corrected. After taking several minor wedge cuts with sharp wood chisels I was able to adjust the bare framework to close fully in the tub opening. This allow the hinges the ability to swing closed without binding on themselves. When the door was first installed the hinges left the front to the door proud 1-15/16 of the quarter panel. ...

    I did think that (subsequently!), Paul. The rubber (if that's what it is) didn't feel terribly elastic.

    The trick with the centre pocket it to have it made with a velcro overlap so you can fit easily to the variations of top and car

    May not be the same as the kitchen variants, but I have just fitted a bathroom Ventaxia fan and it has both permanent and switched live feeds. Switched feed switches the fan on, permanent feed keeps it running after the switched feed is removed (light turned off) fan then runs until timer times-out.

    Looks like it would be easier from the other end, before the push-rod is fitted to the master. Another time, that is.

    Peter and PJ,
    Thank you for your input on the TD v TF question.

    Cheers

    My understanding of Nick's description is the feed terminal is controller input and fan terminal is controller output.

    Other than that, I'm afraid I can't help.
