Correct position for Daimler Ferret Fuel-Cock

Recommended Posts

Greetings All,

 

We finally have our museum's Ferret cooperating with us and almost road-ready. The transmission and brake issues are being resolved and we hope to have the vehicle operational and in the annual Victoria May Day Parade on May 19th.

 

One reamaining question I have is what is the correct "Run" position for the fuel-cock mounted next to the fuel filter on the rear bulk-head of the Fighting Compartment? Is the "Run" or "Main" (tank) position counter-clockwise, to the left, or turned clockwise to the right. I can't find any indication stamped anywhere near the fuel-cock, or any mention of the correct position in any of the manuals I have.

 

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Chris Preston,

Victoria, BC,

Hi. Have a look at this site (among others of course) for lots of useful info, including the dreaded 'fuel tap position'.

 

There was a long running debate on the yahoo ferret group about which side was the main and which was the reserve side.

 

Hopefully this pic will help out.

After moving the fuel reserve lever, you may be surprised to see a fuel leak from the old cork gasket:blush:
