Q & A

Honda Diesel GD1250 21bhp

I've just bought a 24ft narrowboat that came with the above engine. Can anyone tell me where I can get a user manual from?
Not to sound like a cheap skate, preferably free of charge.

This is an unusual engine to find in a narrowboat. I have found a manual available online for a small charge.
With an industrial engine such as this, it is important to be sure that it has been correctly marinised to meet the BSS requirements. the fuel pipes must be either copper or flexible hose to BS7840. The spill return to the tank must be similarily piped, or if the injectors do not allow it, a non return valve can be fitted to prevent fuel leakage in the event of a fire.
