    Mid trim

    Thank you. I’ve just started playing with an idea. I’ll post back when done! good to finally know the model of the kit. cheers

    I was just wondering if anyone had any good photos for ideas for this piece of trim.

    Looking through old paper work it looks like both the straight mk1 and the monocoque were quoted for but the price on the receipts seems to align with the mk1.

    Interesting you ask actually. I was always told it was a 2b so never doubted it. Having looked through some of the old paper work though it indicates it might be a mk 1. I’ll send some older photos but they might have the old trim in place

    Mid trim

    Hi all, I’m slowly getting this old car back to a respectable condition. The new dash is in place but it has revealed a bit more of the top of the side panel with bad welding and holes. I was wondering how people generally tidy this piece up with trim. I’ll try to upload some photos to show what I’m trying to finish off the car is a Robin Hood 2b

    Less sierra fuel

    A stack pipe it seems. Trouble is finding one with combined sender

    Well almost one of those. Without the electric fuel pump built in. Mine just has a long tube that goes down into the tank with a filter on the end. The pump is mechanical off the engine. I just don’t know what to search for to describe that.

    That is exactly what I’m after. What’s it called to search for?

    Worst case scenario... count the miles and carry a can. However, I have seen sender units that are perfectly flat and would fit the current aperture far better than the Sierra twist and lock one I have. My issue would be fuel supply as the current one integrates the sender unit and the fuel line.

    I was hoping to actually just do away with the fuel sender unit completely and attach a fuel line a different way.

    Yeah I really didn’t fancy pulling the tank out and starting again I was hoping there might have been some kind of hacker or flange that would allow me to drop a pipe inside similar to the one already in place

    So for about 6 months since stupidly taking off the old fuel sender and integrated fuel line I’ve been battling to remake a good seal. Almost there but now considering other options. I’ll try link some photos but I’ll try to explain. The integrated fuel sender and line consists of a not flat disc which badly fits onto the aperture on the top of the fuel tank. It has the sender and fuel pipes integrated into it. If I bought a fuel sender kit these are actually flat I see and would probably make a far better seal. But then that leaves me with no way to get the fuel out. It’s a mechanical pump off the engine to pull the fuel. What’s the normal way to get the fuel out? The tank seems to have a welded lid so I can’t easily see what’s available in the way of apertures. I did notice a bolt in the top. Could this be for a fuel line? I’m resistant to turning this bolt in fear I’ll do more damage as before. is there any advice on the normal way to get fuel out the tank?https://share.icloud.com/photos/0qPuVkapMmDU5X2Q47CzwBr1Q
  13. Ha.... got there eventually, the three cables that go from the barrel get to a connector block. It was that that was dodgy. One of them had obviously become too hot at some point damaging the connection. A slight nudge or road bump knocked the block causing power to fail. All sorted https://share.icloud.com/photos/0QzPhAUElUd-mSLS3Dld50T_Q#Home
  14. Apologies... your right12v to the coil. Its a very simple set up as far as I know. The choke is completely manual. The fuel pump is mechanical only. I think there is a starter module but it’s beyond me what it does. Maybe to do with an old ballast wire.
