Thanks.
A small alteration to the thumb nuts. Using cut to length, button head stainless screws, the tops of the threads have been blanked off. This stops me from, over tightening, stops water getting down to the threads and makes them visually similar to the nearby, tank frame mounting screws and washers. A small detail I know but worthwhile.

D'oh ! Battery has died. Been getting iffy for some time and tried trickle charging, but it just drops back to 11v within a couple of hours.
No luck getting the conventional lead acid battery I want/will fit, in this country due to the new laws so have ordered one from France.

The whole ethos, or beginnings if you want, of this country has gone down the pan.
Blame the media happy politicians, who voted for them?

 Grin Think so, but don't push it.
New battery arrived this morning. Not bad, as I ordered it late Monday evening. Good price too.
Being as until they are filled, the shelf life is measured in decades not years (though it may need charging upon filling), I am tempted to order another.
This would of course be illegal. You can have as much battery acid in unsealed batteries as you want, but any quantity in a sealed container is illegal to posses without a special licence. The law is an ASS

You are right about the law being an ass. That just don't make any sense at all.

How long has that been the case?  Or was it because you wanted it delivered in which case the acid is, as you say, in a sealed container, rather than getting it from a local workshop who would fill it and charge it?  Wondering what the price difference would be as I shall have to get a battery for my trike before I can sell it.

BG yes you can get one from a dealer filled and ready to fit but in this case it would have meant a two hour round trip. Tayna batteries will fill and send by courier but it costs more and they didn't have this one or an alternative in stock and had no idea if they would ever have them again or the price if they did.
 Looks like conventional batteries for bikes may become a thing of the past.
Maintenance free, sealed batteries, like gel, absorbent glass mat etc are no problem to get hold of but seem to have a short life span if not used/charged frequently.

Can't sell my mother as she passed on many years ago!  No point keeping the trike if I can't ride it.
