    Sealant Should not be necessary on the diaphragm but the diaphragm should be depressed level and not in the delivery position via the spring Once the diaphragm is depressed [to suction it could tear it ]allowing fuel into the oil A electric pump allows the vehicle to start without wearing out the starter. On most vehicles allowing the vehicle to idle will charge all of the oil galleries. I fitted two pumps on different electrical circuits in case one fails. I had a CVRW fox that had a Electric pump that failed and was hard to acess

  11. Rollers seem very good . When my garage was taken over by a Haulage firm an ERF was ran without coolant and siezed The boss stripped the head off put freeing oil down the bore and to our horror belted the pistons with a hammer and a piece of wood to free the pistons. After rebuilding the engine , they started it I thought it would be KNACKERED but they ran it without trouble Till I left 3 years later. Good mechanics ?

    Ferret Steaming

    Fitting a expansion bottle to take the overflow is a simple job they did it on the SAS jeeps I have had 5 Ferrets and have done this mod If you cannot get a gasket for the manifold Make one out of copper sheet a old hot water cylinder comes in handy  I made a mod on the exhaust manifold to reduce the exhaust leak at the expansion pipes and it was so quite and gave me over 10 to 12 mpg it was posted a few years ago with pics
