Some historic cities in Europe are full of electric cars that constantly beep and bleep
thats not very 'historic' surely some sort of recording of a horse & cart trundling along cobbles would be more in keeping ? :wink:

The extra vent pipe is used when they went from a vented to a non-vented filler cap.

Petrol tank

Make sure it's the tank before removing as mine leaked from the sender pipes because of them being attached with the wrong clips ! This of course happens when the tank is over the point where the sender is fitted not with a low level just as yours did ,just a thought :D

I'd take out the boot liner then you can see just about everything on both sides including the frame inner wing liners etc and compare sides ,it takes about an hour to remove it but well worth it for ease of restoration :wink:
