Yes - Piston on its way out! Way to go Eldersuk! Please see picture three, Paul's face says it all! Of course, I wound him up - "Say cheese! Move a bit to the right...." etc.!

Of course on main units its always get the job done. When I joined the Priam, they had run the hours up on the genes. I could do them asleep. Although it was a bit better on the RoRo than on the Super P, with five generators we could almost programme when we wanted to do the job, except of course on the US coast, as we needed all five online for Stand By.

I thought that the piston was going in.
Protective cap for the piston rod threaded part fitted, and two men watching the gland not to be damaged??
