Thanks to all for your advice on the fuel problem and the egg collector can get back to sucking eggs Cheers


Looks like I might have rubbed you up the wrong way - didnt mean to - Sorry.

I hope the new pump is the answer to the problem - keep us posted.

First of all the z cars tank design isn't the best as I felt it needed a collector sump so it wouldn't suffer from fuel starvation round bends as much plus as I learnt running the fuel lines close to the coolant pipes isn't a good idea either especially in warm weather or traffic jams!!
It really needs a fuel swirl pot fed by s low pressure pump circulating fuel so it gets a constant supply an keep the lines away from heat sources as much as possible.
Hope you got it sorted?
