SE6A Fuel Pump

That's what I thought but have stripped it and cleaned all chambers and blown the jets thru. The result is exactly the same.

SE6A Fuel Pump

Thanks for the reply.
Its just a plain universal filter so no regulator. Didn't see any Gauze when I stripped the carb. I pulled the feed pipe off the carb and out it in a 500ml bottle which filled in around20 seconds.
I have also tried now without the filter and the results are the same.

Didn't mention, both flow and return fuel lines have been blown thru with compressed air so no blockages.

SE6A Fuel Pump

Ok guys some more problems here. I purchased an electric pump which is rated for carbs and should deliver 95-115 litres/hr. I have mounted this near the tank inside the rear chassis rail. Checked the flow into a bottle up by the engine and it seems to be pumping well (although I have no idea what 95...

Tony, the Essex has a vent system that has a pipe (with one way valve valve) between the RH rocker cover and the inlet (via the carb spacer that sits below the carb)
What does this actually do? It has come away again and I will need to re fit it.

Thanks for that info Jim. I suppose the high pressure is to activate the injectors? I will source one designed for Carbs. With regards to the filter, should it be placed prior to the pump or just before the carbs? or doesn't it matter?

SE6A Fuel Pump

OK so the mechanical pump was busted and is now junked and the hole blanked off. Looking at the various electric pumps available on a well known internet Auction site there are many different variations. Does it matter how powerful the new pump is? There are some shown which are recommended for Fuel...

SE6A Fuel Pump

My car has been laid up for around 18 mths whilst it has been stripped and prepped for paint ( very slow process as "life" keeps getting in the way). I decided to try and start it yesterday on a whim just to run it up to temp and get oil all around etc. About 8th tank of probably stale fuel so put a...

SE6A Radiator

I have 3 rads which have come with my 6A. All leak and my plan was to sort out the best one and have it re-cored.

Is this the most sensible way to go or is there a better alternative (perhaps alloy) rad I could buy? What kind of cost would be involved for a re-core?

SE6 Not Starting

As usual I found the answers I needed on the Forum.
Put a heavy duty Jump lead from the Neg terminal to the chassis and away she went.
Traced the earth strap and it is in a very poor state so will be replacing it. :D :D
