I'm going to clean out the tank with mercuric acid
as best as possible, blank off the
top 4 outlets,and remove all the extra pipes that go up to the red manifold. (emission system delete)
I will fit a new filter in the original position. The original measures about 74mm diameter by about 106mm long.
Is this a standard IE filter on my car?
I'm inclined to fit a new pump at the front,together with another filter.
This I've read should now be a pull type rather than push. Perhaps someone can confirm my thoughts and recommend
a pump.

Hi Nigel,

it looks like satisfying work. I've just done my fuel system and bought a ( Bosch fuel pump 0 580 464 070 ) its similar to the original one.
Some of the members might be able to recommend a better option.

Good luck, and please post a few more pic's of progress.

Best Andrew

Thanks for the comments Andrew. Yes,i'm enjoying the project so far!

One of my questions fell into the category "why did I ask that?"...... i.e. the fuel pump! I refered to a recent post for all the answers!

I've ordered a Huco 133010 for 45 quid,should arrive before the weekend I hope.
This new pump will go engine end.
I popped into a local factors this afternoon and found a Wix metal inline filter which will,
very convienently,fit into the ,now unused, old pump bracket at the rear, along with some new
8mm gates fuel hose.
As the outlet from the tank is 13mm I will probably make up a reducer in copper to bring it down to
the 8mm on the rest of the system.

I've now blanked off all the tank pipes,de-rusted the outside-top of the tank,and poured in a 3 to 1 mix
of brick acid [15 litres]which i'm expecting to take a while,with regular turning to get to each part of the inside.
Depending on the result, I may well do it again,either with the same stuff or something stronger.

So, with the metal filter at the back, I'll fit a 'normal-for-carb' plastic jobby at the front between pump and carb.

I'l also be installing an inertia switch,as it seems a really good and safe thing to do. Thanks Kevo and Eric for noting that.

To mangocrazy and betaveloce, did you guys retain the return-to-tank option?

Much regards
Nigel

Hi Nigel,

No, I blanked off the return line. I suspect electric fuel pumps are smart enough to stop pumping when sufficient resistance builds up, whereas mechanical pumps just pump away regardless.

Yes, I retained it, because at the time, I didn't really see why not

Thanks for your replies chaps!

I'm now undecided but i'll figure one way or another when I get nearer
to fitting the pump. Space is an issue on my particular car as it has a black plastic tank thingy
mounted to the back of the power steering reservoir bracket. I'm not sure what this tank does yet,
it's either to do with air-con or emissions.
If emissions,it will be deleted, if air-com it may have to be relocated.

Cheers all,for now.Updates to follow.
