I'm aware this isn't a chat thread, but feel I must update you on the boiler saga....I'll try to keep it as brief as I can.
I should say here that whilst not being a 'boiler engineer', I do quite a lot of DIY and have a fair idea of plumbing, electricity (and a modicum of common sense) etc and how they work.
Having listened to the 'engineers' explanation of why the parts he ordered didn't fit, I noticed that a steel plate at the base of the boiler wasn't fitted as I would have thought (upside down to be precise) and if he reversed it I could imagine things (screw holes etc) would be where they should be.
To cut a long story short, I have a fully functioning central heating system again.
