  6. 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

    Ferret fuel pump

    easiest way is to replace with an electric pump . I fitted two on separate circuits and put in a separate kill switch on both of them. no more fuel filling the sump. CVRT 24v will do or you can fit a 12v using one battery there is plenty on ebay. I took the engine out to clean and put a blanking plate were the pump was

    Ferret Fuel Pump Woes

    Hi Richard when the mechanical pump is on form it works fine . problems occur as the cam that drives it wears or the diaphragm is torn due to bad / incorrect fitting or perished diaphragm. Smell your dip stick does it smell of petrol. I am with the guy,s get an electric pump . I fit two , one as a back up. I put the switches in obscure places they act as an ant- theft device. Starting is great . Its better than pumping petrol oil around and having to replace big and main ends not to mention cams , bearings ,push rods and oil passing past oil seals. regards Laurence
