Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Thanks Alan, up to this point I have gone from mech to elec then back to mech, this prob has followed me all the way, pretty sure the 'pumps' are OK, I am going to run a new fuel line from tank to pump and see how we go. Pommy

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Jim, sorry, re-read your post, remove sender unit for access and look for debris round outlet, thing is I can predict when fuel problems will start within a mile of running. Pommy

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Dennis, I am using worm drive clips, changing them is worth a try.
Jim, ? How does the sender unit effect fuel delivery.

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Not been up and about for a while so today is the first time I was able to go for a long (15m) run to see if the replaced tank flexible fuel hose replacement had done the trick... Sadly it hasn't, first 8m ran really well then fluff fluff at very low speed, managed to get home, checked the filter, v...

Bottom front damper bolt

Thanks all, didn't think this would be so contentious, I wonder what the instances of the bolt coming loose are. Dave Pom

Bottom front damper bolt

Managed to get a bit of flex on the knackered lower damper bush and wrestled it out using mole grips, needless to say it won't be going back that way round, right or wrong. Many thanks Dave Pom.

Bottom front damper bolt

Trying and failing as a home mechanic again... Se5a, the bottom damper bolt is hitting the offside front lower wishbone arm as I try to remove it, nearside just had clearance but no matter what I try this one hasn't, other than dismantling the wishbone, which I would like to avoid if I can, can any ...

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Hopefully my last post on this problem, the rubber hose from the tank to fuel pipe was like a sponge in the middle and hard at each end, replaced it and the clips, fuel now holding in the filter, not draining back, mixture is now pretty rich so any extra air that was being pumped has stopped. Only t...

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Managed to get someone to go under the car and have a look, first thing is the rubber pipe from the tank outlet to the plastic fuel pipe has no hose clips on it and can be turned by hand, so a bit loose. Question is, am I right in assuming the fuel outlet continues into the tank and then goes at rig...

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Fitted the pressure reducer today, seems to have done the trick in starting, tickover and static revving, but hasn't made any difference to the underlying problem, still feels like fuel starvation, also noticed the amp gauge is only showing 11, was at 12.5 . just a coincidence ?. Looks like I may ha...

Price guide for GTE SE6b

Datsundrew, pull your neck on buddy. Have a gander through the gallery, you'll find most aren't pristine, but loved and those that are in 1st class condition are rightly lauded by their owners. Pommy

GTC Preston

Spotted a very nice grey? GTC driving out of Preston towards Bamber Bridge today, could have been to 'classics on the park' event, nice car. In fact today's been a right treat as classics of all makes, including a Black Mustang, have been passing my house.

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Done a pressure test on the new pump, putting out 7psi much to strong, so much for buying OE kit that doesn't come in a makers box, far eastern rubbish maybe. I have a pressure reducer so I will plumb it in this weekend and see how it goes.

Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Back from hols , recovering from Scimmy Stress... Fitted a new mechanical pump, delivering tons of fuel, but, before fitting car started on the button, idled well and rev'd freely. Now hard to start, won't rev and completely lost idle, engine flooding, rowed back the idle screws to 2 1/2 turns out, ...

Re: Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

OK, see what you mean, I am not experiencing that problem. I keep coming back to the pump, petrol is very low in the filter, below the pipe bores, even when the pump works it never completely fills the filter, I think a change (new pump) is needed. Go back to manual or a new electric, price is about...
