Paul,

You have had to try and make sense of this info, that (as you know) relates to the later "compact" model of your heater.

Hopefully I will be able to check this info against the wiring diagram for your model in the next few days.
As soon as I do, I will post any differences found in heater pin numbers / functions here.

I,ve been reading this post with intrest, nowt like doin a bit of home work before you take the plunge but with regards sooting up and the quality of the fuel would a drop of a good fuel additive not do the trick to keep thing flowing smoothly ,i only say this as we have a old astra diesel within my lot, a sort of a pool car nicknamed old smokey by the girls, anyway it hardly gets used which is something that diesel,s dont like

I decided to stick it through a mot thinking that it would have its last rite,s ,only to be told by the brother inlaw whos a vehicle technican (dont call em machanics any more ) to try an additive ,we did and it flew through its emissions ,runs and starts like a dream without the smoke ,infact next time iam down at the boat i,am going to drop a bottle in the tank as it says it also lubricates the whole of the fuel system
any thoughts

For years I used to additive in my diesel at each fill-up. Kept the old BMC lovely and smooth. Since having a Webasto installed, I've stopped, as I'm sure I read on their instructions that it can damage the heater. I keep toying with the idea of having a separate tank fitted, just for the heater.

Hi Finny,

Both Eberspacher & Webasto are very touchy about addatives, as I recall they only recommend one, a really old one that's been around for years IIRC.

Hmmm intresting is that ,only we at work have them fitted to all our small waggons ,they used to tip barrels of addatives into the main fuel tank just before the tankers arrived ,nowadays we get Shell to add the addatives at the refinery and although the units are 24volt Wabastos we never seem to have any problems of any sort and they do get hammered over the winter

"they do get hammered over the winter"

I think you've hit the nail on the head there Finny, thats exactly what they need to keep the chamber, screens & plugs free of carbon and everything working as it should. Seems just like everything else on a leisure boat, stuff hardly ever gets the chance to wear out and many faults appear from lack of use or corrosion.

NB, I was probably a bit misleading in my earlier post, the additives I was referring to are the type we use not performance & anti waxing ones used on the road i.e. enzyme based & biocide based types to prevent the dreaded bug in diesel and water condensation interface in when the fuel sits in the tank unused for a long time (there we go with that word unused again)

Well, I've posted pretty well everything that I've learnt about these older heaters on this thread (so it's the end of the road for me).

Thanks to everyone else that have contributed to our understanding of these great little units.

Wouldn't it be nice if an Ebby dealer could now chip in with some useful advice (It's all good advertising chaps, and who knows, there could be a forum member out there wanting to purchase new).
