  1. Thanks....yep i will forget this idea then
  2. Before refixing the tank in the car I was wondering including some rubber between tank and body at the screw holes just to avoid any possible vibration then I wonder if it is a really good idea as maybe tank needs to evacuate static electricity?
  3. Well i m not really sure you can replace fuel sender gasket without removing tank....very little space for screwdriver but even if done I don t see how to remove the float
  4. yes you can replace the gasket with the tank in place. the plug is on the right. You can by underneath. There is a hole in the boot with a cap (to remove) which allows to access the drain..... (remember it is aimed to drain the tank :-D)
  5. I was facing this strong fuel smell and after quite long researchs I managed to find where it came from.... the drain plug gasket. Quite impossible to find as the leak was very small’(but strong smell :-). ) i could find the leak with an idea I had which could help several of you. I put white paper sheets under the tank and the hoses... after one week i had the surprise to discover I had a leak from the tank ( by chance I discovered it was restored 20 yeas ago and had no rust) taking into account good advices, i did not put any fiber gasket but a copper one
  6. Same for me...just need the fuel to come back....full throttle helps a little, don t understand why but it helps
  7. To be honnest this is kind of legend isnt it? Or may be it applies to petrol in the tank for 20 years. On my own experience old fuel has never been the cause of problems except once on a motorbike parked for 5 years and carbs were stuck with kind of glue
  8. Not sure araldite will resist to fuel.... must be checked
  9. Lightened flywheel is a great improvement , too ofren forgotten
  10. My experience with old tyres is that they are ok on dry but they tend to slip a lot on wet roads. You have to adapt your program.
  11. Did use octane booster on my porsche when going on track days.... better combustion for sure, exhaust white. I don t know how much it improves performance but anyway it s not bad
  12. 10,5v?! Should be 12. For me dead battery yes
  13. My trunk is melling gas. I am replacing all hoses but I suspect that the 2 connected to the pump are specific. Where can I find the correct replacement?
