Have you tried adjusting it? Two screws hold it in place: one above and another below. Once slackened a little, it can be rotated for adjustment. There should be continuity in the idle position, and continuity should break as soon as the throttle is opened. (That's how I set mine up anyway.)

Yes tried adjusting it, didn't seem to get much just very slight rpm change but on testing it has No Continuity reading at any position ,think i may have sourced a working used one.

Well guys, Ive put away the HAMMER (for now!) as my car started this morning, I adjusted the NEW regulator pressure last night to what the Bluebird manual suggested which is 43psi,actually set it at 40,dont know why,Probs cos to much pressure worries me a little, does anybody have any other pressure settings suggestions/recommendations. i'm gonna let the dust settle for a few days, start eating and sleeping again and maybe go outside of the garage and see my family again! HAA
See if it starts next week ! ???

Thanks to all
No-Doubt back soon.

Can I ask: what fuel regulator did you get (have I missed the post!?), I understand you have to cut the rail to replace it?

Got a Malpassi fuel regulator(for injection) £89 , No cutting of the rail as the regulator is joined into return line at out feed of the rail, spliced into the rubber pipework .

Malpassi / FSE Sytec AIR004 Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator 1-5 bar & Gauge, E-bay.
