Hi. Thank you for all the thoughts, I think my advice to the club committee will be do it, as its as one of you said, one more thing to tick of as being ok for at least another 2/3 yrs.
The cost for the pump is in the region of £70 to £90 and as we DIY the service I think a set of bits comes to about £200 inc the pump. This yr it might be a little more because I have replaced the sacrificial anodes.
We are also considering putting a new Yam 703 control box and cables on it. Has anyone done this and how difficult is the set up?
