Heads you win some you lose...

Heads or for landlubbers Crappers ;D

About two weeks before the postal strike I ordered a service kit for a Jabsco toilet. One week into the strike the kit filtered through past the PO blockade ;D Wrong set :-/ >:( :'( apparently toilets made before 1997 have black handles, toilets made after 1997 have grey handles. Both sets have the exact same part numbers, how stupid is that? :( ::)

So I send them back after speaking to someone on the phone, I telephoned rather than do it on line cos the web site don't know I want a grey handle kit and there was no way of telling them.

Anyway Monday arrived and so did the correct kit. ;D

Tuesday morning I'm on my boat up to my elbows in you know what ;) and having changed every part and put the pump back in position I opened the sea c*cks and did a test pump :( :-[ bloody water went everywhere except into the toilet. :'(

So I had to take it all to bits to find out what I f@cked up. :-/
It appears I had over tightened the six phillips screws that hold the top on and broke two of the molded pillars that the screws screw into, useless stupid design ::)

So the outcome is I'm now waiting for a replacement pump cylinder and another

Bought the seal kit from Marinestore but I went direct to Jabscoshop for the cylinder. :(
