  1. Be grateful if someone would pm me Paul Bishop ‘s (think I’ve remembered his name correctly) phone number. A friend is thinking about seats. Thanks, JJC

    Overheating fault

    Roger that’s what I was hoping. Easiest to fix.
  3. Another fault has appeared. Stuck in traffic or idling temperature indicates fine. Running at 3000 rpm or more the gauge goes right up. Knock it out of gear and the temperature drops quickly. Anyone experienced that? JJC

    Fuel pump

    Thanks for the replies. I’ll trust to the original AC diaphragm which replaced the failed after market one but will look at a petrol tap because a failed diaphragm drains the petrol tank into the sump under gravity. JJC

    Fuel pump

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds as though I can risk the original AC diaphragm to replace the failed after market one. Bearing in mind that a failed diaphragm allows the tank to drain petrol into the sump under gravity think I might investigate a petrol tap . JJC
  6. This post also appears on the 4 forum. I’d be interested to know how many of us have been running pumps with the original AC diaphragm with no problems due to unleaded. Thanks. JJC

    Fuel pump

    I put this on the general forum but didn’t get answers. So this is a repeat, sorry about that. I’d like to know if many of us have been running original pumps with unleaded with no problems with the original AC diaphragm. Many thanks. JJC I’ll post it on the side screen forum as well.
  8. I’ve just had a failure of a recently rebuilt pump. Actually more than just a failure a real pain. Think where the petrol goes when the new diaphragm fails. And it doesn’t stop. As I had a box of old pumps in various states of disrepair I found an original AC diaphragm. Encouragingly labelled “genuine”. Fitted it and it doesn’t leak, yet. My question is how many out there still have original pumps which have suffered modern petrol? Will my AC diaphragm survive unleaded? JJC
  9. I keep saying this. I’ve got a 3 synchro box free o anyone who can collect it from deepest Dorset. It Must be good for parts. Eventually I’ll put it on eBay or the tip. JJC
  10. I have a 3 synchro box looking for a home (free).JJC
  11. Have ordered the needle version from Burlens. The Grose is going back for a refund to the other supplier JJC
  12. Looks like a leaking (new) Grose valve. Anyone else experienced that? JJC
  13. I’m fighting the rear Stromberg. It floods but not until the engine has been running for 5 minutes. The carbs were rebuilt about 4 years ago. It’s not the grose valve, not the floats nor their settings, needle and piston ok. Anyone experienced this? JJC
  14. I have a 3 synchro box if anyone wants it. JJC
  15. Anyone had experience of repro control boxes? JJC
