Re: Clarke Masts

The top tube (40mm Nato socket size) is blind and needs to be drained or syphoned out.  To drain the mast needs to pivot on swivel base just past 90 deg  .I leave my spigot to the  rotator and stub mast in the top tube and use a lot of grease to help seal, some kind of flange sealed to the stub mast would help.  The mast drains freely if the air bleed screw is left open, water will drain away.  Once the mast is erected and locked off the drain can be left open it is always better to lock off, reduces wear on the plastic keys.  The drain valve must be closed  and the  MAST MUST BE PARATIALLY RE-INFLATED before un-locking the clamps one collar at a time  with the the drain open to lower.  Never let the sections slam down to stops of course.  For storage I do have a canvas cover available from Clarke.  Wiping a silicone soaked rag on the outside of the tubes repels water and keep dust and grit in check and is mentioned in the maintenance manual.  I use Clarke silicone, I believe that fully synthetic oil 0-30 sae can be used,  I have never had a problem with freezing with the silicone, it works down to -10C at least.  I like the bucket idea, would need a decent seal though to the stub mast.

Fully agree, Silicone grease only. The seals run on the insides of the tubes, so no external greasing required.
Seals are a natural / neoprene style rubber, hence only silicone grease. Other greases will shorten the life of the seals.
It's all in the Clark manuals.

Always cover the top of a Clarke mast, water gets into the top section and collects at the bottom of the top tube, where it can freeze and split the tube.

I leave my drain plug open all the time, if closed in hot weather, air could expand and extend the mast, and in my case could lead to trouble going under bridges as its vehicle mounted.

My SCAM mast has a drain valve at the bottom which stops it filling with water when not in use. As an additional precaution I also cover the top with a plastic bucket.

I tend to use an Android tablet when out portable, and find that most useful as it saves the added clutter of a laptop, tethering to a data source etc.   I'll PM you regarding the other two though, as I do like to get to the bottom of these things!

Hi Dave,

I'll contact you via PM for some more info, I have tried this stuff on desktop mac with High Sierra OS, which is quite old, so I had hoped the newer ones would work. it can be quite difficult to debug this stuff on iPhone,

One thing you could try is visiting http://websocketstest.com/   and seeing how many little green ticks you get ... it may also be your device rejecting the SSL certificate chain my server is using ...

Hello Robin,
I have the correct user name and password so can get into on4kst but when I try to get into 
your blogspot I get ‘unable to connect to undefined’, so I am not sure what is going on.
I have tried an iPhone and and MacBook and the response is the same.
