Hi John

    I was thinking of car parts – bits you can buy in the local Halfords (which is just up the road from the marina) but truck bits could be even better value!

    For instance, I use Castrol GTD oil which has the right spec and is about £16 for 5 litres.

    I remember someone saying that the oil filter is the same as a Peugeot, but I can’t remember the model.

    The primary fuel filter is a standard CAV296 – I just need the equivalent car part number.

    The secondary fuel filter and the impeller might be more ‘specialist’.

    As for anodes, I suspect we are stuck with Volvo for now unless anyone fancies doing lost wax casting!
