Couldn't you destroy a less than perfect one ?
That looks too good to cut up

If I could find one, yes, and if it was for sale for less than a hundred quid. This was twenty quid. Cheapest by far. It's not as good as it looks in the puc to be honest. Chrome is shot. Rusty inside. Slotted holes are rounded and deformed and the side brackets are just mounds of rust.

If it's not there Steve, you could always buy it back.

After my run at Curbs I seemed to be over-fuelling, so thought I'd better check the pump pressure.
The kit came this morning from D-T. :)

Clearly the pressure is already too high! :shock:

BTW, unlike my other pressure gauges, this one doesn't have a "zeroing" adjuster on the back.
It's OK though, I'll be able to check for negative pressures too.

Italvolanti steering wheel moved here to General Technical as it turned into a “How to fit it to a Reliant” discussion :D
