That’s a pain mate, nothing worse than not knowing how much fuel you have... my dash pod keeps not working, it’s like playing warning light bingo most days lol

Great run to mania and back. Twisted sender bit more got it vaguely correct no dramas as such but now safely home think fuel pump dead. Find out tuesday when i finally look. Was fine towing there n back. Parked . Moved caravan n van pulled van back in parked then nothing from pump after. No priming noises etc so will check for power then pull it strip it if poss if not beat living hell out of it see if that helps :0)

Ooh got trophy too thanks everyone who voted for me!

Hello again just enjoying sunny days here.. meanie has hsd a new fuel pump as the 1988 one it had on finally gave up.... not bad for 30yr old pump from amby its had a long hard life!!got 5bar uprated one a good pal brought me whilst i was down on my luck and after establishing my sender cobble had an air leak went back to the di sender fittings and hey presto all good ... have to remove the botched tske off tho as sticks up so high the tanks not level so will get it done soon. Gonna stick a non return valve in as tank gets vacuum and the sucking of air when fuel filler removed is phenomenal... got one in carport so ill fit it so allows air into tank as fuel is burnt off should help things out a bit?
Test run to romford last night was great considering air trapped in new filter had to be purged and only hilly roads could sort that as filter bolted up horizontally... gauge still bit vague but i put that down to unlevel tank which ill sort in next few weeks..
Towbar also tested lol as van conked out wouldnt hot start at gates of pals unit yesterday...weldings sound hahah

Glad to report that no further break downs so far.. not managed to renove the shitty sender pick up tho cos apparently the milliput i used to seal it worked a bit too well hahaha.. van defo seems a bit more spritely than before so guess new pump and filter is a lot more effieient than the old ones! Be good to get it up the strip again!

Anyone heard if north weald is back on??
