Only when the rubber pipe from Block to tell-tale outlet was pulled off accidentally whilst I was mucking about under the cowling

Won't do that again. Luckily I only ran it up on the muffs before I noticed, although I did panic at the lack of tell-tale until I figured it out.

I presume the rubber seal is fitted OK on your engine.
Worth also checking somebody hasn't removed a water temp/pressure gauge or similar without blocking off the hole before you brought the engine.

No water comming from the block, it's all comming in externally. I've spent the day with the remains of some silkaflex filling all the joints in the casing. One thing I did notice today was that two one-way valves in the bottom of the casing were blocked, I succesfully cleaned one out but damaged the other removing the ball so it lets a little water though from the other way.
