Fuel leak from metering unit

Recommended Posts

Starting the TR this morning, heard the sound of petrol splashing on the garage floor. Petrol was dripping out of the control unit. Assume the end shaft seal in the metering unit has failed. Would others agree that this means that a new exchange metering unit is required? :-(

Glad it didn't happen when I was driving...

Probably fuel diaphragm , especially if the car has been stored for a while and the fuel has gone stale.

 

I've replaced the fuel diaphragm in the past using instructions on this forum but make sure the replacement diaphragm is made of Viton or the problem will recur within hours.

 

And if the fuel is stale I'd replace it as added insurance.
