Fan Control Change

Over the weekend I replaced the fan controller on my 2lt 7. The on that I had on was going as there was a bad connection and sometimes the fan came on and then sometimes it would not until I moved the cables on it. So I thought it time to change it. I got one of the Revotec controllers that came wit...

What degree thermostat?

I want to replace my thermostat as it has not been changed in almost 12 years and I have put on a new fan controller, so thought I would replace most of the coolant parts. I see that the most common degree thermostat 74 degree, but I see that you can get 82 and 88 degree thermostats. Would you only ...

Re: Electric fuel pump

Thanks for the reply guys, I do feel that there Is a need to put an electric pump in. Personally, I think that the option to have the pump in the engine bay is the best option for me, easier to get to if anything went wrong. The regulator is a good option too, but I would have to sort out the carbs ...

Re: Electric fuel pump

I must admit that in the engine bay is a better option. I have been looking at the pumps around and I must admit that I do like the idea of this one with the filter and the regulator: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Classic-Kit-Car-12v-Aeroline-Electronic-Fuel-Pump-Pressure-Regulator-Filter/202685295613?...

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

To tell you the truth Has been I have not had the pump off yet to check it. I was thinking of taking it off and having a look but not checked for cracks or the diaphragm. I must admit that I still ling the idea of the electric upgrade and too true Beans, the extra wire would be a good winter project...

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

Thanks guys, I think you may be right. I have a friend who suggests using paper or card as temporary gaskets to show where the leak is coming from. If it does turn out that the pump is leaking I really think that the best option is to go for the electric pump. I have not had chance to smell inside t...

Re: Electric fuel pump

Thanks Has been for the comments, I was wondering if it would be better to put the electric pump at the back of the car by the tank or in the engine bay. It is true what you say that if the pump is in the bay it will be easier to keep an eye on and ensure that the pipes are good and the filters. Als...

Re: Electric fuel pump

Thanks for the information it is pushing me to one thought, that I need to fit an electric fuel pump. I do like the sound of not having to crank the engine if she has been sat for a bit. I like the sound of turning the ignition on for a few seconds to fill the float chambers and then a nice easy sta...

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

I seem to be having a bit of a game with my new spacer and trying to stop it leaking. I have replaced the spacer, added new gaskets and then replaced the bolts with studs, but she is still leaking. When running she is OK (nothing), but when she stops after getting up to temp she starts leaking. The ...

Re: Electric fuel pump

Thanks for the replies guys, I am thinking of going down this route as currently I am having issues with my manual pump and the spacer. I cannot seem to stop it leaking, new spacer, with new gaskets and she still leaks. I have changed the bolts for studs in the hope that it would be easier to get on...

Electric fuel pump

I am looking to replace my manual fuel pump with an electric one. Has anyone done this conversion and was it easy?

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

Well what a turn up. I ordered one of the thicker gaskets and it arrived today. Wow what great fast service, well impressed. I did put it on today and ran the car, thought I had sorted it all out as it was running sweet. She did dump a bit of fuel but I was hoping that was just a blip, she is a bit ...

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

Thanks Has been, I was thinking the same regarding the printing of one. Shame as originally the 3D printers seemed to be the answer to everything (and a little more) however the more you look the more you think not. I have been having a look and I have found a few places that may fit the bill: https...

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

The funny thing is that I took the pump off today. I had the long arm pump and the spacer was split in half. Think that may be where the leak is coming from.

The issue now seems to be getting my hands on a reasonably priced 13mm spacer.

My mate has a 3D printer, shame he could not print me a spacer.
