Fuel pipe fittings?

are we saying that the original nylon is not ethanol proof ? Seems to be... When the initial FBHVC tests were underway to ascertain the possible issues with Ethanol in petrol, Nylon wasn't listed as an "at risk" material (unlike Copper - but I think Copper is now off the "endangered" list), the sam...

I don't know what the 4 speed non-overdrive is rated at? Possibly 200lb/ft - based on what it was bolted to. That's not to say it won't survive with a fair chunk more through it, but lifespan starts to reduce dramatically. At a guess, BGH would know but I doubt you'll get an answer out of them unle...

The SE5a learning curve! - still alive!

Sounds like the Battery Control fuse is the common factor?

Try another fuse - they aren’t all created equal, unfortunately.

Travelling tools & Spares

Couple of adjustables, a small socket set, tywraps, gaffer tape, a good length of 30A wire, a simple on/off switch with a couple of good lengths of wire pre-installed, some epoxy putty and a Leatherman/Gerber will either ge...
