Re: vent pipes for self containment

No minimum distance. If you are joining the two vents together, grey and black, make sure the connecting joint is above the flood level. If it isn't, you can get a back feed to either tank if overfull.

Re: vent pipes for self containment

If you can get it up through a wall and out at roof level would be ideal.

Re: starting motor won't turnover motor

Separating the 2 noises out. You should get a "click" as the solenoid pulls the Bendix into the ring gear. (This can become confused as some starters can have 2 solenoids which make the same noise.) This is when the contacts within the solenoid come together and send the power to the start...

Re: vent pipes for self containment

Just a matter of plumbing it up so the grey outlet and tap comes between the black tank slide and the 75 mm bayonet fitting. Obviously you don't need back flow into the black tank and black flowing into the grey.

Re: Clutch Problem, or brakes???

Reading between all the lines and without seeing the set up, I am of the opinion that there is a clutch pedal booster. Nothing to do with the brakes at all. With the pedal going to the floor means the hydraulic system is failing through age, more so with the pedal sticking on the floor and being abl...

Re: Newby plumbing advice.

Q 1. I assume is relating to a portable waste tank. As long as the vent pipe fitting is either capped or closed off with a tap when emptying or transporting, that is OK.
Q 2. You got it in one.
