  1. Hi Adrian, Tried to phone Revington this afternoon, no answer. Sent them an email, no response. Thanks. Mark.
  2. Thanks for the response Waldi, Battery is fully charged. The pump is making whiring noises (pulsing). Yes, the PRV is connected the right way. I do have a pre filter, and a Bosch post filter fitted, will this filter (after the pump) be a problem? Thanks. Mark.
  3. Thanks for the responses Stuart and Colin, Just started the engine- Initial pressure pulsing between 130 / 140. Then dropped to 110 / 120 (without me doing anything) Then pulsed between 60 / 120 (without me doing anything) Then the engine died, along with my enthusiasm. So I guess it's the pump that's knackered ? Cheers. Mark.
  4. Hi, I am trying to adjust the fuel pressure on my TR6 Pi. I have a Bosch pump and Revington diaphram PRV. I cannot get the pressure below 125psi. Instructions that came with the PRV say screw in to increase pressure, screw out to reduce pressure - which does not make sense to me, should it be the other way round ? I have the pressure gauge connected to a tee piece at the metering unit. Ignition on (engine not started). Wire to coil disconnected. Could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, or has anyone else had similar problems. Thanks. Mark.
  5. Keith, Could you enlarge the two holes in the valance and adjust the bumper irons to suit, maybe you could get it 1/4" lower ? Cheers. Mark.
  6. Hi Nigel, Thanks, yes makes sense. I managed to sort it out yesterday. Power feed from rear of ammeter to relay. New wire from relay (in engine bay) to pump. New wire from inertia switch to relay. New earth wire from relay to wiper motor fixing. Everything works as it should. Appreciate your help. Mark.
  7. Hi Nigel, Thanks for the reply, I have nearly sorted it out myself now. I am fitting a wiring/relay kit for a Bosch fuel pump, I have connected the brown/white wire to the ammeter (a real pain). I am now trying to figure out where I connect the white wire that runs from the relay to the fuse box, any idea's ? Thanks. Mark.
  8. Hi, Can anyone recommend a mobile auto electrician in the Northampton area ? Thanks. Mark.
  9. No other vacuum leaks, just started the engine again and now idling at around 900rpm - going in the right direction, still getting popping and banging from the throttle bodies though.
  10. Hi Neil, I have done some more adjustments and applied some grease. Engine now idles at around 1050rpm. Regards. Mark.
  11. Thanks Waldi, Done some more fiddling and idle is now 1050rpm, closing the air screw is still not stalling the engine though. Regards. Mark.
  12. Hi all, Apologies,I know this topic has been covered several times on the forum, but I am at my wits end. Purchased a CP car last year that was on SU carbs. I have now converted back to injection. Purchased a "lot" of all the parts needed to do this (all reconditioned and from a TR Register member). Started the car a couple of days ago, it started quickly, but the revs were all over the place, between 1200 and as much as 3000rpm. It seems to have a mind of it's own. Any advice would be most welcome - I just want to get out in the car and drive it before the weather turns. Thanks. Mark.
  13. Thanks to everyone for the replies.
  14. Good afternoon, I am converting my car back to PI, it is a CP UK car, but the previous owner converted it to run on SUs. I am very nearly there, just need to finish fuel lines / hoses etc. I have just one question, initially, I want to connect up the original wiring so I can run up the pump to check for leaks and get air out of the system - am I ok to do this ? I will get the wiring and relay sorted when I can find an auto electrician to come and do it for me. I have read on several forums that some owners still use the existing wiring for their Bosch pump conversions. Any advice appreciated. Thanks. Mark.
  15. Thanks all for the replies, think I will use two filters to be safe. I will also add a "tap" to the hose at bottom of the tank. Mark.
  16. Hello All, Converting my car back to petrol injection and the next job is to fit the Bosch type pump, filter, and PRV in the boot. Should I fit one, or two fuel filters (pre pump + post pump) ? Thanks in advance. Mark.
  17. Hi ntc, How do I check with a dial gauge, is there a written procedure anywhere ? Regards. Mark.
  18. Thanks Waldi, really appreciate your advice. All the best. Mark.
  19. Thanks John, Waldi, just a couple more questions please if you don't mind. (1) With the spacer washer in place, and before measuring the gap between the pedestal and block flange, how tight should the pedestal be pulled down ? Brown book is unclear. (2) Waldi, how do I check if the gear drive moves freely after fitting the gaskets, just by hand turning the engine using the fan blade ? Thanks very much, appreciate your input - just want to get it right before the next step - fitting and timing the metering unit. Have a good weekend. Mark.
  20. Hi All, I am trying to establish what gasket thickness I need to use on my CP Pi Metering unit pedestal. I have followed instructions as per the brown book as follows:- I used a spacer between the oil pump shaft bush and the pedestal drive shaft, the thickness measures 0.060" I measured the gap between the block flange and pedestal, this is 0.063" I don't fully understand the next stage, anybody have an idea what thickness of gaskets I need between the block flange and pedestal base ? Thanks for any input / advice. Mark.
  21. Thanks Richard, Still got to do the rear brake pipes, fuel feed, and fuel return. After that, I don't want anything else to do with brake pipes !
  22. Waldi, Agreed, would have been a lot easier (and tidier) if they had done the same as LHD cars, just dropped the pipes down from the master cylinders. Mark.
  23. Hi Keith, I did mine slightly differently from the master cylinder as I did not think the original route looked tidy. I purchased a brake pipe straightener off Ebay - worked a treat. Cheers Mark.
  24. The return is 3/16", I am in the process of replacing mine with copper/nickel pipe. Mark.
  25. Hi Grant, I had leaks from the driveshaft seals and pinnion seal, once I cleared the breather I have had no leaks at all. Cheers. Mark.
