Tips on electrical fault when starting? Before I take it all apart...

I believe it should be:

Brown = Battery 12v
Green/white = P1 12v
White = P2 12v
White/red = P3 (spring) 12v

Graham Walkers

Must just be me, but interesting to see comments about great service, I contacted them 3 times last year for parts prices (all the same enquiry) as wanted to compare to QRG, never had a response, so only ever speak to Nigel @ QRG now. I had the same experience. The other Nigel at Parts World was ex...

Ford's SS1

I was intending to eventually replace the fuel lines with copper, but need to do a bit of research of fittings for mating it with rubber at either end. Also need pipe, and new dies for my flaring tool, come to think of it. It might actually be more sensible for me to just replace the lines now and n...

Fuel tank venting

I wasn't going to have an aerial on my car, so I might put a pipe up to the hole for that instead of blocking it off.

My T-piece is this type, less substantial that yours agriffo but does the same job.

Fuel tank venting

T piece is plastic yep. There isn't actually any extra pipe on top of that valve. The parts manual shows a length of it coming off, but I'm not sure if that's necessary? Also I wonder if the T piece needs to be where it is on my picture, or if it could be moved over to the left so a piece of pipe ca...

Fuel tank venting

There should be a piece of pipe going from the vent on top left of tank to the pipe on filler, and an inline T with a pipe going up to a valve mounted on the metal frame (where the boot hinges mount) which allows air in, but won't leak fuel out if you ever decide to go upside down. Where does that v...

Mine needed to be minimum of 35mm, but from Jim's pic I now see longer wouldn't have been a problem
