SOURCE: Whoopie cushon/balloon noise

Try disconnecting the air intake and see what happens (that won't harm the engine). I don't believe it will harm the engine w/ this noise, although it might be a little embarrassing. They have been using corn to make gasoline, I wonder if they started using beans?
Let me know the results and any new clues you may think of or the truck may develop. Have someone under the hood when u shut truck off to see it they can figure exactly where it's coming from. Beano in the gas tank? No, No, don't do that. countrycurt0

What are hi-float balloons?

Hi-float balloons is basically a way to extend the life of helium balloons that would otherwise deflate in around 8-16 hours. The hi-float treatment coats the inside of the balloon and helps them to last up to 25 times longer (depending on the quality of the hi-float treatment).

Air trapped in boiler making noise

If the air is in the boiler itself you can't vent it through the pressure relief valve on the side. If the air is in the loop (baseboard or radiators) then you should go to the highest point in he loop & bleed the air out using the bleeder valves on he baseboard or radiator. You need to follow the pipes & see where they turn colder & that's generally where the air is.

My worcester bosch 24i junior pressure keeps dropping if i have heating off for an hour i have to top up boiler and reset also when i have heating on the pressure jumps right up to over 4.0bar

When water is heated it expands. To deal with this all boilers are fitted with a small expansion vessel which is like a reservoir which holds the excess water.

This expansion vessel is like a balloon in a metal pot. When the water goes in the metal pot the baloon squashes a bit to make room for the extra volume of water. When it cools the balloon pushes the water back into the heating system.

What has happened is your expansion vessel no longer works. When the water heats up there is nowhere for it to go so the pressure jumps up to 4 bar. The Worcester boiler lets high pressure water escape (most boiler allow this to go through the safety valve at say 3.5 bar).

When the water cools the pressure drops very low as the volume of water contracts.

The problem is your expansion vessel - normally a little red painted metal cylinder inside the boiler.

My coleman 424 stove has been sitting in shed for a coulpe of years, now got it out again. Filled with petrol when pumped up I can light it but flame only lasts a few minutes then it dies as if no...

My best answer is that your pump seals have dried out and are allowing pumped up pressure to leak back past the pump seal
Pump it up hard then quickly attach a small balloon with a rubber band around the base of the pump - where it contacts the tank. A deflated balloon or a small plastic baggie - does the balloon begin to fill with air after a few minutes - if yes then your seal is leaking.
You might try taking the pump apart and soaking the seal overnight in fuel reinstall and see if it cores your problem
Good Luck

Francis Francis X1 Popping noise - stopped working

Hi There are a couple of things that could have happened. The fuse could have blown, but you wouldn't get a pop usually. The main board could have blown, that will pop. There is a hole below the steam arm. up inside there is a screw that you can loosen. Then you can unscrew the steam knob. There are 4 screws on the bottom side of the cover that will allow you to remove the top. Make sure that the machine is unplugged.
