Re: Suitable sealant for diesel filler hose/tank joint.

The hose is indeed extremely stiff and I have yet to pull it entirely off the spigot, although it is nearly there. (the spigot tank join is ok) Replacing the hose looks like a nightmare, so a further botch looks likely. Hermatite hasn’t been made for some years(afaik), however, I unearthed a boxed t...

Re: Suitable sealant for diesel filler hose/tank joint.

Many thanks both for your useful replies. Was planning to take my heat gun just to get the hose fully off, but heating it prior to tightening the j clips sounds gallus. A smear of your sealant for good measure should do it.

Suitable sealant for diesel filler hose/tank joint.

Discovered lots of diesel in the bilges. Traced it, after much grief, to the filler hose/tank joint. The filler hose comes horizontally into the side of the tank (near the top) , 2" dia, held with 2 jubilee clips. There was evidence of some sealant used with a fillet of it visible (red hermatit...

South past Fladda

Alas, time to go south for winter.... Thinking of heading off from Linnhe Marine on Monday, but tides at Fladda/Dorus Mor require too early a start, so contemplating an overnighter near Fladda and an easier passage Tuesday morning to Crinan.
