Re: Electric fuel pump

I'm with pbar on this. I started mine for the first time in 2 - 3 weeks, no chokes, quite a bit of cranking, like 10 sec, before the first little sips got into the cylinders, then another 10seconds of firing and dying, then it ran with a little misfire, cured itself and was fine. I think it's always...

Re: Belated Unseasonal Motor Meet (Eastern Region)

Thanks Tom, that was a real BUMMER 😄 Fab weekend, great to catch up with the gang again. Good run home and it was nice to see Tom in my mirrors for the first 20 minutes.

Re: Electric fuel pump

Would fitting a non-return valve in the fuel line be an easier and cheaper option? Tried one but it’s not very satisfactory, there’s still some drain back after a couple of weeks, it’s a random aluminium unit that looks a bit naff and just leaves another join in the fuel pipe (which I’ve just repla...

Re: The Queen RIP

No offence intended, but as John Lydon wrote recently " I've got no animosity against anyone of the Royal family. Never did. It's the institution of it that bothers me and the assumption that I'm to pay for it" I have to smile at Mr Lydon, I suspect that he didn't do too badly from his as...

Re: The Queen RIP

IMG-20220909-WA0007.jpg I appreciate your sentiment. Thank you. But no military person would kneel for this! We would stand rigidly, immovably to attention, with heads bowed, as a final mark of respect to 'the boss'. Not 'my boss' I'm afraid. I expect Martin swore an oath of allegiance to the Queen...
