  1. Yes, mind necked off at the injector, was down on power and not starting too good when cold. Considering she was only running on 5 cylinders she didn't sound too bad when running, surprised at that. 2nd injector at the radiator end, any other one and I think I could have repaired it without pulling the pack. I will borrow the pipe off my spare pack! Hoping I can change the pipe without taking off the heat exchanger, very limited room! Will see when the packs out.
  2. Recently found a split injector pipe on the abbot, so its a pack out job. Never lifted a pack before, ive got everything disconnected apart from the oil, fuel, electric lines to the bottom corner of the radiator, is it best to lift the pack a little then disconnect them? any other tips would be very helpfull, not a job im looking forward to! Andrew
  3. Wanted instrument panel and exhaust manifold (front one, to the left of the supercharger) for a fv 430 range.
  4. Thanks Andy, Luckily i did not need any, the old seals sealed! But i did find some that are very close to the size of the original seals at my local engineering works, 107mm id x 3.3mm and only 90p each. Oil pressure, a healthy 70psi when cold, backs off to 45-50 when warm. Andrew
  5. Im having difficulty finding the correct oil filter seal. xmod need the part number to find me the correct seal. If anyone could help that would be great! Andrew
  6. The pressure pipe/gauge is now fitted, looks impossible job, but there is a route in there for your arm, just dont drop anything or its gone! Im going to run the engine with the tank out, to check for leaks, am i right in thinking the 2 pipes that are on the top of the fuel tank (1 large 1 small) are both returns? Just need the engine oil filter seals to come from xmod before i check for leaks!
  7. The tank is out, clean inside, fuel pump taken out to check the filter gauze. Took a while to find the fuel pump electric wire but got there in the end. Managed to reach the tapped hole at the back of the oil pressure switch, i have some fittings to go in the tapped hole and up to a oil pressure gauge. Andrew
  8. Can the fuel tank be taken out with the pack still in? I see the wires through the hole at the back of the drivers seat, im i right in thinking these are all fuel sender gauge wires? I dont see any fuel pump electric wires anywhere, dnt want to pull the tank until i know i wont damage any pump wiring. I need to clean the tank out, also get to a small fuel leak somewhere, and while im in there tap in the engine oil pressure switch to put a oil pressure gauge in. Andrew
