So I want to do the efi fitting.

I need some sort of high pressure pump, swirlpot and fuel piping. Supply and returns.

Did I dream it or can I buy a pump and swirlpot combined ?

And for fuel piping. Do I buy the braided stuff or make it up with 8mm / 6mm pvc covered copper microbore as per the lpg systems.

The ecu , injectors and fuel rail are sorted.

You only need a swirl pot if your tank can’t guarantee a constant supply of fuel. Not all need it - the 1800Ti doesn’t although you need to keep the level about half and above with spirited driving. How big a tank do you have space for what with your onboard Calor Gas tank?

8mm/6mm solid line will be fine with flexible (Cohline rubber) bits at either end.

Thanks as ever Phil. Tank is about 8l and it’s where one of the drug cubby holes was. Would be fairly easy to keep to a level.

On another note is this a remote one. Moss have a sale on but it doesn’t quite say if it’s remote.

I’ve got two girdling servos but they both need refurb. Moss one is £90

That’s a remote servo. MGB per chance?

Is it genuine Lockheed or “another” Lockheed-type servo?

It’s on the moss website for mgb. Don’t think it’s Lockheed.

How easy to refurb a girling.

I believe a Girling is easy to refurb if the bore of the cylinder is OK.

The non-genuine Lockheed ones seem ok but might need a mod (removing an o ring IIRC) if you start to experience the brakes sticking on..

Ok, a bit of research and a Lockheed type is from £50. Ranging from 1.65 to 2.3 ratio.will my larger master to drive the wilwoods need the larger ratio or is it a risk of locking up. I’m just looking for a bit better brake. No servo is a tad :? With the omega engine

Ratio is one thing and purely related to pedal pressure - you need to know the size of the cylinder in the servo. Last thing you want is to run out of brakes..

Before you ask, I’ve no idea what it needs to be.

Well life’s a bit hectic at the moment, but it’s also in limbo. We are moving. Sold Cornwall, bought Somerset but my solicitor is seriously crap and jeopardising the deal. My wife is already living & working in Somerset so I’m commuting between there, Plymouth and Falmouth. When I am home, I’m struggling to find time to work on the car due to having to get house ready for the impending move, jobs and thinning out our stuff. Plus it’s still raining most days so the garage I rent is damp. I’m loath to try to fix it as we might be out in as soon as three weeks, or not at all.

I’ve got a cracking place lined up, but I darent wish too much in case the solicitors achieve their misguided aim and screw up the move.

There’s actually no chain, yet they’ve still taken nearly four months and counting...

Sorry if it sounds like therapy, but I’ve spent all day emailing and scanning documents in response to inane queries that a phone call, would solve. But they won’t answer the phone.

Luckily I did a lot on the car before Christmas so it’s still Up and running. A bit of dry weather would be welcome, just to tr6 to shake her down.

Talk soon.
