Hi All Can anyone help with a part recommendation? So part the number is UKC2451 and is the flexible fuel pump mounting for original Lucas fuel pumps. I bought some a good whie ago, although not sure when, as the old ones were all cracked and split. The new ones looked diff, a bit less substantial but hey its just a mounting so how hard can that job be. Well flippin difficult it seems. As you can see from the pic's one of the new ones has already failed with the threaded plate not longer "stuck" to the rubber. Its obvs to see why, the original is a lot more substantial and the rubber is much more moulded around the threaded plates rather than stuck on the end. Now I understand things like this will fail eventually but the 50 year old item is in much better condition that the 4 or 5 year old one esp given the original had done 70k plus miles and the new one has done precisely ZERO miles as my car is not even on the road. So the question does anyone know of anyone who sells a etter quality item or is it take pot luck and replace them regularly. Cheers Keith
Hi All Just a quick note to moan about poor parts, doh. When I dismantled my poor old 6 I notice the grille badge was a little scabby. Decided I didn’t want one of the foil things so hunted for an Enameled one, but not expensive. And I found a new one locally, some guy selling all sorts of spares out of his shed, looked great. Not 100% but nice enough, lettering a bit thin but hey bargain, Yeah. Until that is a found it does not fit the mounting plinth, because it’s just not curved correctly. GRRRR. Trouble is because it enameled and the black is basically glass is I force it to ben it will just crack and I’ll be back to square one. Can’t remember exactly where the guy was and it was ages ago so lesson learned. I suppose I could fit it anyway as who looks that close at the grille. Cheers Keith
