  1. I fitted a Facet 60104 to my Series 3 last year. The pump had to go in the boot and it primes OK, the Series 3 tank is 8 inches deep. The fuel pump relay and inertia switch also went in the boot. I also use a Webber 32/36 DGV carb on a 2l Pinto but did not bother with a fuel pressure regulator as the pump is only 1.5 to 4 PSI. I did manage to find an inertia switch that had normally open and normally closed connections, the normally closed feeds the fuel pump and the normally open feeds a 12v buzzer so that if the inertia switch ever activates the buzzer will sound. The pump has now worked per
  2. I have a shortened sump on my 2.0l pinto and the capacity is 3.5 litres.
  3. Hopefully this might help. I used to use this system prior to converting to Megajolt but I do have a photo of the module which shows the brown earth wire going to Pin 1. This was the wiring diagram of the ignition system I used: I think that most diagrams are shown for clarity of wiring rather than the actual pin order of the module as the above is. Nigel.

    gearbox oil

    I bought a cheap pressure sprayer and attached flexible tubing to the end of the lance. Put the oil in the sprayer, pressurise it, bung the flexible tubing into the gearbox filler hole from under the car and then control the flow of oil with trigger. Job done.
  5. Helen and I can do either. Nigel.
  6. I use the same type of fuse in my Series 3 and have a 50A fitted.
  7. Had to use them in January to recover my diesel tin top when it had an injector fail. They were excellent, got straight through to them and they arranged recovery quickly. Well worth the money especially as the policy covers me and the wife in any vehicle.
  8. A history of Robin Hood Engineering can be found on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robin_Hood_Engineering
  9. There is an adjuster on the cable where the cable passes through the rear beam near the differential, this adjusts the slack, there is no adjustment at the handbrake lever end. Nigel.
  10. Helen and I should be there as well. Nigel.
  11. This is from the April 1998 sales brochure: The Series 3 and 3A had inboard shock absorbers whereas the NEW Series 3 has outboard. If you would like a pdf copy of the sales brochure drop me a message with your e-mail address. Nigel.
  12. Sorry, unfortunately I will not be able to make it today. Nigel.
  13. I fitted one of these last winter: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Facet-Posi-Flow-12v-Electronic-1-8-quot-Inch-Fuel-Pump-1-5-4-0-Psi-Low/361015158958?epid=1525018526&hash=item540e2e28ae:g:EI0AAOSwAL9UeXYH I was fed up of cranking the engine after the car had been sat for a few days to get fuel to the carb before it would start, the fuel was evaporating from the carb over time. The pump is 1.5 to 4.0 psi, I also have a DGV on a pinto and have not fitted a regulator. I now turn on the ignition and wait a few seconds for the pump to get fuel to the carb and the engine now st
  14. I fitted these to my Series 3: AVO PA 160/105 - 16" open 10.5" closed with stem top Springs 10" free length 175lb A vast improvement over the original Zimmerites.
