Mk3 fuel tank filler pipe and engine feed pipe in R9 (Biofue

Postby Demundz » Thu Oct 27, 2022 11:22 am

Mk3 fuel tank filler pipe and engine feed pipe in R9 (Biofuel safe rubber).

I have an Asquith based on a 1989 transit chassis and 2lt pinto engine. The rubber ware is original (33 years old) and starting to perish.
Is it possible to get upgraded parts to R9 rubber or am I stuck with new old stock?

I think you will be lucky to get new old stock tbh.

The pipes to the engine should be 8mm ID plastic, albeit with some short rubber sections to join it.

The other bits (from memory) are a large dia, 90 degree bend and some other straight pipe (breathers).

You can probably find all the bits in modern materials - but I suspect the Asquith doesn't use entirely standard transit parts either?
