Title: Replacment pump
Post by: smithymc on June 17, 2013, 04:21:27 PM
Can anyone tell me if this pump will fit my 1600 carb coupe?

I am without car so cannot compare visually.

Thanks

Mark

Have a look at my recent thread that has a picture of the pump I fitted last month. The one on your eBay thread looks a bit tall to me and may foul the inlet manifold.

Latest - its not the pump, its crud in the tank, which has been awakened by all this driving it about for MOTs nonsense.

I assume best option is to strip and line the tank?

Either that or buy shares in a fuel filter manufacturer...  ;D

I've recently had to get my Spider tank re-lined. When I drained it the amount of crud and corruption that came out was quite disturbing...

Is lining the tank a DIY thing( looks quite simple on the POR 15 video on YouTube) or are there any specialists who will take the pain ( and mess) out of the process?

There are specialist who will take the pain out of the process, but they replace it with a pain in the wallet...   ;D

I used Hartlepool Radiators and their Re-nu process. Basically they open the tank up, blast it inside and out, weld it back up again and then bake their own proprietary coating onto it. They offer a lifetime guarantee, but it will set you back the far side of 300 depending on condition. I'm sure there are other people out there doing different processes and possibly cheaper, but this seemed a 'do once and forget about it' deal, which appealed.
