  1. Good afternoon, A BIT OF ADVICE PLEASE, I HAVE A 1942 GPW JEEP, WITH A CARTER CARBURETTOR, WHEN I PRIME THE FUEL SYSTEM WITH FUEL PUMP, A FUEL LEAK IN NOTICED COMING FROM A DRILLING/HOLE FROM THE CARBURETTOR BODY, IF I PUMP THE THROTTLE PEDAL WITH THE ENGINE ON OR OFF, I STILL HAVE FUEL LEAKING OUT OF THE HOLE, BUT NOT AT IDLE. SO HAVE I A BLANKING PLUG GONE MISSING OR IS A GOOD BLOW WITH THE AIR GUN REQUIRED, IT IS ON THE ACCELERATOR PUMP SIDE, OR A NEW PLUNGER AND SEAL REQUIRED, OR JUST BUY A NEW CARBURETTOR, THANKS IN ADVANCE ROB.
  2. Where as the war and peace buzz gone??
  3. No more fantastic breakfasts at the Air port cafe
  4. ALL parts are available, 2 pipes,1 elbow,and gaskets,one per side,little bit of jointing compound,keep it original. the elbow can crack,make sure you clean both sides of the hull,before refitting gaskets,nothing worse than finding you have a small blow. ROB.
  5. Fuel gauges on ferrets are prone to tank sender units,check connections first. my gauge does not work,I just keep a eye on the tank level,carry some spare fuel. hazard light not working, relay ? ROB.
  6. I will be there from Friday,taking one ferret,lightweight, and my new toy Fordson Wot 8. ROB.
  7. You, should be able to, replace the cork seal,check for excessive corrosion and refit. I would just replace the cork seal. IF you do get a N O S fuel tap, you still may end up replacing the seal,being perished with time. Rob.
  8. IF and when visting do not for get the fantanstic medal collection, they, hold over 10 vc groups.
  9. After moving the fuel reserve lever, you may be surprised to see a fuel leak from the old cork gasket:blush: cheers Rob

  13. I am getting old and forgetfull, is there a classic/country show in the Canterbury area? like last year, cheers Rob.
  14. I Have breakdown cover for both of my ferrets thru A FLUX, JUST make sure in the small print that your vehcile does not require a mot,read the small print.(for breakdown cover) gerneral conditions, no 10, could be a pain in the Axxx, when you are stuck on the side of the road. ROB.
  15. I came up with the same answer, about 8 months ago.
  16. HI All, Does a MK 1 ferret, after 1960 require a MOT,if not reason why? Local DVLA said it should have a MOT. Regards, Rob.
