hi rebel alliance, just the answer I've been waiting for lol😆. Your right, drove it from Bath to Essex constant speed . Think if it was going to blow it would have done then. Thanks for your help. Try & sort clocks now.
Cheers Paul.

Does the 5A have an "ignition" relay to power everything except the ignition? If so, it might be stuck closed, putting power onto the voltmeter?
I'd disconnect the battery just in case there's something that might flatten it overnight.

I would disconect battery untill it's sorted. Bath is just up the road from me . As rebel says there can't be much wrong with it . Start by checking or changing the voltmeter .

Hi all again, it doesn't seem to flatten the battery...... Been like that for over a week & only used it 2 days over that time because of the oil pressure . I'll check that voltmeter out though or get another .
Thanks for some more suggestion lads
Cheers Paul
