Anyone else out there finding that their Rule float switches aren't waterproof anymore, these things used to last 12 months, we find now we are lucky to get 2 months before they fail, opened one up tonight to find what is shown below, I think I've changed about 12 of these in the last year between 2 ferries, how the hell can you manufacture a float switch that isn't water tight.

The one below is only 4 weeks old !

And at $50 odd a pop, that adds up !

David ReynoldsYes, at my work we are getting a lot of complaints about the 'automatic' models (Rule- Mate) with the self- contained float switch. You'll be much better off with a separate standard 1100GPH pump and old style float switch.

David ReynoldsWarranty on the Rule float switch is voided if you have diesel in your bilge! Rubber seal instead of nitrile so won't cope with petroleum products. Therein lies your problem.

Daniel MorrisJust an ideaIs the housing being mounted to a flat surface and the screws securing it not to tight as to twist or warp the housing?Are you mounting them on a strange angle? Maybe they rely on being mounted facing a certain way to hold an air bubble and not seep in thru top wires or sides.

Kevin BatchelorThese e were once the foremost float switch...There are may different types on the market now. Might be time to look at something else. Go to the importers and get up them as well...Bob Basham it used to be. Otherwise cove r the joins in silicone.....Not good :-(

Jason DavidsonYes the new style are rubbish they have a micro switch mine just failed it wouldn't have switched on ten times in 6 months I think the old ones had a Mercury switch they were much better

Here is an example of the process we are having Gardner Marine UK go through during the engine rebuild, and an interesting little fact regarding the way a Gardner engine and gearbox setup was originally put together Quote from the engineers in the UK.

"We have spent the majority of the last two days getting the gearbox casing to mount up to the engine properly - This was not as easy at all as I had originally expected. The Gardner 2UC gearbox casings were mounted to the engine before it was fully built and final boring of the output aft bearing housing was done concentric to the crankshaft. Of course we are putting a new gearbox on an engine that did not originally have one, so we have ended up having to machine the casing to offset the register by 0.035โ€. Not a problem now but a hell of a job to get right".
