Vinyl roof

...Done by a previous owner, Jim...or Reliant. My dear old 'Big Sis' has a lot of 'ripples' on the outer extremities of the roof near the guttering...I could imagine filling being used had someone fitted a vinyl roof...

Petrol dripping onto inlet manifold by carb (GTE)...

I've written the identity off the old one since I got back.....FL664/AG165 if that means anything to anybody - I was wondering if it fitted any other models... Is that FL6664 Geoff? Could well be, Jim, I guess - even with reading glasses + magnifying glass it wasn't easy to make out. I discovered o...

Petrol dripping onto inlet manifold by carb (GTE)...

Just come in from putting the pipes back on....'frying pan' etc. The goo stuff seemed to have hardened where important & critically when the dear old girl fired up & ticked over there was no sign of dampness, drips or creeping moisture... :D ...Hopefully a result.

Thanks Terry....'JB Weld' was what I mentioned when I was in Halfords - no luck; all the 5 different Araldite packs were five n' arf quid each so didn't fancy taking a punt on something that was probably no better than the stuff that I'd got already................Thanks for confirming that my pictu...

Petrol dripping onto inlet manifold by carb (GTE)...

I replaced the fuel hose & inline fuel filter, yesterday - was very happy with what I'd done....& even happier when she started easily & settled to a nice tickover. I then went & peered closely at the fuel-lines, filter & carb. unions. I was just about to think of putting the 'frying pan' back when ...

Petrol dripping onto inlet manifold by carb (GTE)...

Well I never... :roll: ...I didn't notice the blocked off return pipe!Thanks for the response, Peter & Phil - that's a very kind offer, Phil: the pipe goes into an inline filter (for which I have a replacement) & that length of braided hose looks to be about a foot to fifteen inches. I certainly nee...

Having used her for a run on Sunday I noticed a smell of petrol by the time I got her home...When I parked her up on Monday & opened the bonnet to remove the 'discarnect' wheel from the battery terminal I was horrified to see petrol dripping where the end of the petrol pipe (braided. in this instanc...
