I've heard of them cracking (rare) but not desoldering..Glad you found the problem quickly though. John


Hi, for anyone who may be interested it turned out the return pipe within the oil tank had desoldered and was allowing oil to flood through.


Hi Thomas, thank you for the information. Kind Regards


Hi Andrew (?), that might be sludge at the ball valve. You can find a decription here on page 47:
