Mechanical fuel pump problem - Essex engine.

The other thing about that type of fuel pump is that if the engine is fitted with an alloy timing wheel, it can touch. Making an awful racket. I changed mine to a fule pump with a slimmer cast leg. Which has been working fine.

French Trip...

It will be interesting to see when I pull the head off. To be fair I have known about this for some time. When I first got the car and compression tested it some years ago number 4 was the lowest compression. And I have had some people comment that I have had a puff of smoke from the exhaust on occa...

I did not know about about Morgan. My car is properly sick however. It's blowing oil out of the oil cap down the side of the engine. And there is a wet tar like deposited on inside of the nearside exhaust. No clouds of smoke or anything, but definitely poorly. It did, however, stay running and I had...
