Grawpy

After a few days sorting niggles with the motorhome after Le Mans, I got back to Grawpy this week. After getting the loom laid out and plumbed in, I had a fault with the fuel injectors - number 3 opened as soon as you turned the key, and it stayed open during cranking (the other 3 didn’t pass fuel)....

CVH aren’t fussy about HG like some IME - probably wouldn’t use some eBay specials but any branded HG should do on a NA engine.

Bonnet bolt hinge size?

I’ve had to replace the captive studs in SE5 and SE6a bonnets before, they’re welded to a plate that’s bonded into the bonnet.

Rear Trailing Arms - Poly bush or rubber bush ?

I’ve been in a road car with poly and it made a hell of a noise - however, that was many years ago and poly has improved a lot since then.

Are they both blowing at the same time? With or without the lights turned on (if so, which lights)?

Good stuff :D

Cut the crossmember and fit a removable one, to allow sump removal in-situ.

Is it an aftermarket eBay fan? Probably pulling too much power and blowing the fuse.

Is the fuel cap vented? Only early cars should be vented caps, later cars have a vent behind the boot liner.
