Heater knobs allen key

If I were prone to buying chocolate tools, you may have had a point. However, although I can't recall what they are, they were purchased many years ago with a recognised quality. Unlike some folk, I preach and understand the difference between "cheap" and "value for money". :mrgreen:

Until the ball breaks off and remains stuck in the button head screw that you were trying to undo. :mrgreen: I wonder how I might know that?

The previous owner is irrelevant, if you have the document reference, you just do a change of ownership as the new owner.

If you have the V5 document number, just go online and SORN it. When ownership passes to you, SORN it until the end of that month then away you go!

Put your gloved finger on the masking. It should be sticky, with no paint transfer to your finger.

Fuel pump pressure

"Redline" believe that the mixture screws should be at 1.5 turns out, so not sure that I would be taking much notice of them! I will have to look it up tomorrow unless someone else chips in beforehand.

Low revs torque

The port between the quadrants is for the original air cleaner's vacuum motor. If left open it will give all sorts of running issues. A piece of 4mm ID tube with a screw in it as Jim says, is the answer if not running the original air cleaner.

The last flatting is the final coat of primer. Basecoat you don't touch in any way, I don't even recommend a tack cloth, although some do. If you put three light coats of basecoat on, it will not be an issue anyway. Don't look for a gloss, basecoat is purely colour and lacquer provides the gloss. If...

Fuel pump pressure

The return pipe helps take the load off the needle valve. There is a very fine jet in the return line which is overcome when the needle valve closes and diverts unwanted fuel back to the tank.

I think there might be two float levels depending on brass or plastic floats?
Yes, measurements for both are in the workshop manual.

Fuel pump pressure

The standard pump shouldn't be able to overwhelm the needle valve, so the valve is either faulty or your float level is excessive.

Practice and set the gun up on some masking paper taped to a door etc. Pressure is quite important, so set it on a gun mounted gauge with the trigger pulled. Spray some gunwash for getting the feel of it. Then try the paint on the same paper as you will need to open the controls a bit more. It is un...

The 1.3 is suitable for basecoats flat, metallics and lacquer. The 1.8 is for primer as a general rule. You will find the guns to be very easy to use and require little air. Overspray is minimal. It takes a bit longer to spray a panel with LVLP but that can be a benefit to someone who isn't experien...
