  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Hi ntc, How do I check with a dial gauge, is there a written procedure anywhere ? Regards. Mark.
  4. Thanks Waldi, really appreciate your advice. All the best. Mark.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 !
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. The return is 3/16", I am in the process of replacing mine with copper/nickel pipe. Mark.
  11. 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.
  12. I had the same problem last year. It was the breather that was blocked, worth checking that first before spending major money. Mark.
  13. Thanks Harry, It is a refurbed metering unit, so I guess the filter will have been cleaned / renewed.
  14. I am converting my 71 CP back to PI. I have purchased a metering unit supply hose from Revington, but I am not confident that the hose is going to seal against the union on the metering unt - see attached pic. The original hose (still on car) has a flat face inside. any input would be most welcome. thanks. Mark.
  15. Hi Gareth, They do the centre section with the holes for the number plate housing / light. When I ordered, I specified no holes in the rear bumper. Mark.
  16. Finally sorted, with a little (or a lot) of adjustment here and there. I shimmed the rear (of the 3) connecting bolts, that join the return corners to the centre section, and that greatly reduced the "splay". Thanks all for the reponses. Cheers. Mark.
  17. Hi Stuart, Thanks. That's interesting. The car only had a bracket on the nearside. I have a drivers side bracket coming today. Will fit it and see if it makes a difference. Cheers. Mark.
  18. Rich, Will wait until I hear back from Harrington, don't want to risk damaging the bumper (or my rear wings). Cheers. Mark.
  19. Graham, Agreed, don't want to damage it. Mark.
  20. Hi Roger, Have been in touch with Harrington and they say that all their bumpers are checked for angles / dimensions prior to final polishing. They have asked for more photos / dimensions. Something is wrong that's for sure. Cheers. Mark.
  21. Hi Rich, Don't think there is enough "give" to pull in with bolts, think something will bend.
  22. Hi Tom, They came from Harringtons direct. I have sent them photos, they have asked for more along with dimensions.
  23. Hi All, Just got round to fitting my new ss Harrington bumpers. The front went on with no problems at all, but the rear bumper returns are way out from the rear wings, it appears that the angles are wrong. Am I missing something here ? anybody else had problems fitting rear bumpers from Harrington ? Cheers. Mark
