Looks the same, do you want both bits or just the catch?

I hadn't realised there were two separate bits - but really it's just the finger catch not the spring part that I need... or indeed that little spring!
I'll PM you

Well my bonnet catch is sorted due to new spring made from stiff wire. Thanks to scimjim for the info but Ive managed to reuse my original catch

The next problem I'm dealing with is the interior trim panels in the foot well, for which the ply wood had completely delaminated into a crinkly pile of paper thin sheets.
Luckily there was enough to use as a template for new bits of ply

Simple question about the carpet (thatI 've also had to remake) though - should it be tucked under the door seal and under the footwell carpet, should it be wrapped around and stuck to the back of the plywood or should it be trimmed tight to the edge of the wood?

Having looked at this some more last night it looks to me that the edge of the trim panel carpet where it meets the door opening would benefit from being wrapped around the door aperture edge under the door seal and that the lower edge would benefit from being tucked under the main floor carpet - ie no tight trimming or wrapping around the board for those. However the top edge and footwell end edge would both be better wrapped around the board or trimmed tightly to the edge

The carpet is too thick to go under the door seal. However you could use some vinyl stitched to the carpet edge which would then hide the edge and will mould under the door seal.

Does anyone have a closeup pic of the Essex Power Steering pump in situ? including how the brackets nuts/bolts/washers attach to the engine and pump? I can't work out how to fit mine!

Every time I’ve put one together, it’s taken ages to figure out!

This might help a bit - getting the spacers in the right place is tricky.

Thanks Jim. I have seen that diagram actually but have been finding it difficult to follow because you can't quite tell which holes on the pump and (especially) on the block are actually used.
FWIW mine is more like the top diagram I think but my pump is a different shape - being more of a one-box style: rhomboid-ish with a rounded bottom.
That is why photo would be lovely!

That sounds more like the Se6b pump - a photo of yours might assist? I guess the 6b pump might still work, as the rack is the same for both cars, but of course the 6b had the cologne engine, so I don't know how the brackets would compare? Has yours ever been assembled and working, or do you just have a random box of bits that you're trying to put back together?

Thanks. The pump is like that but the bracketry isn't - more like the first one from scimjim.
It came to me in 'kit form'. I hope it all belongs togther

My camera beckons......

Ah, you've got a 6b pump, Ian :) Hopefully that will help Spegru with his.

Excellent - that pump is the same as mine. I just want to check that is an Essex? I can't quite see
