Fuel pump/ lack of fuel

Fit a electric pump - you can fit it in series with the mechanical pump and with a push button use it to prime the carb.

Warning! 25A switch won't handle 18A for long.

Car fuses are often over rated he MGF EPAS system has two fuses 10A and 40A I fit 7.5A and 30A and think that the 7.5 is more than needed anyway - 5 is probably nearer the mark. 25 seems a bit low unless its a slow blow fuse.

Warning! 25A switch won't handle 18A for long.

Like I said here is no indication of what the rad fan fuse value should be - only the two relays.

Petrol hose ( again )

I have fitted my pump next to the tank where it is out of the weather and easier to get at. I have also kept the rubber hose to a minimum length and metal piped into the engine bay so all of the rubber is easy to see without having to get under the car.

Warning! 25A switch won't handle 18A for long.

The MB fan motor fuse value is not listed but I would think 40amp should be ok. being two speed the two coils are fused by 25 amp fuses but that has nothing to do with the fan current. 30/40 amp relays are readily available.

Parking sensors

I bought reversing sensors from Maplins and they work well ( £25 for a pair ) - you do have to fit them high enough tough - easy on the Coupe where I fitted them in the reflectors ( pic ) and easy on the 6/gtc where they just fit outside the inside the rear light units but not so easy to fit in the ...

Problem with front wheel hub

The older cars had the smaller outer bearing - you have acquired a hub from a older car not a younger one. Best you contact the club traders and ask for the older bearing - you are right it being 68 to 71 or thereabouts. They were changed because flexing caused the brake pistons to travel too far in...

Rear screen seals

Did not have a problem when I changed mine - I assume you have order a new pair of top to bottom fixing kits. I inserted the glass into the bottom half first then eased the top on. One thing to note if you have a new rear screen with the heater elements embedded in the glass it is thicker than the o...

Sabres and the MoT

I intend having our Coupe MOt'd every year as I think it will not be long before the insurgence Co's ask for a engineers report. Best to be ahead of the situation IMO and they can hardly refuse a MOT cert as its the legal requirement for cars under 40 years old and it gives a independent look at the...
