Filter King now fitted and plumbed to my mechanical pump with new hose.

The Silverline cutting tool was a very reasonable price and cuts fuel hose really well.

Hopefully the refurbished carburetor will be back in the next couple of weeks.

Hello Neil
Can you tell me which company you used to refurbish your carburettor. Iím not at the stage to do this, but I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on the result.

I've used CFS in Bradford, they advertise in the back of Practical Classics. I'll post how I get on once the carb is back on and working.

Hello Neil
I saw the advert in Practical Classics, I noticed that there are several companies that do carburettor refurbishment, have you used this particular one before?

No, they are new to me but they have advertised for several years. I mainly opted for them as they are local, so no transit risks.

I'm a bit late joining this conversation, but:

On my carburettor equipped HPE the hose connection tubes on the carburettor and the tank measure just over 8mm for the feed and just over 6mm for the return. To me that defines the size of flexible hoses required.  The tube ends are belled to provide a snug fit for the flexible hoses.
Not measured the pump connections.

I finally got to run the car with the refurbished carb and the Filter King for half an hour in mixed driving conditions; queueing traffic through to 70mph on a dual carriageway. At first there was a fairly bad flat spot/hesitation when pulling away, but I'm putting that down to a fouled spark plug, as this cleared completely after about 15 minutes. After that, super smooth and pulling away strongly in all gears.

Just the brakes to sort now before hopefully attending a summer of top events......
