Heater Matrix pipes, I only seem to have one hole on the ledge of the bulkhead below and left of the wiper motor? I have a very nice stainless plate fitted with four bolts. Under the plate there are two holes, should both the water pipes for the heater matrix come out of that plate? Or does one go through the bulkhead.
Ive attached a couple of pictures?
Next fuel pump, the engine has the mechanical fuel pump blocked off and I dont have a pump amongst all the bits. An electric pump would seem to be a good idea? You can add security measures with an electric pump. Having had my old 68 Cooper S stolen 30 years ago a secret switch seems like a good idea. So heres the question. I am thinking of running the engine in (its a 1380) with the HS4 carb that I have, its in good nick on a decent manifold. However I do want to switch to twin HS4s or the like. Which fuel pump should I get? I need enough pressure but not too much? Do I need a pressure reducer. The Webers on the lambo wont work with too much pressure, Im not sure about the SUs because they have the float chambers seperate. I need a pump with enough guts for both applications.
I have an electric Davis and Craig water pump with the control system on the shelf. I purchased it for another car but never got around to fitting it. There is plenty of discussion on the forum but if you are starting from scratch you might as well get rid of the mechanical pump. Ive found on previous classics that the biggest problems are at Idle, the pump doesnt circulate enough water at tick over regardless of fans and there is no air flow to help out either. Plus the electric water pump can run on after stopping which is good for the motor.
Ideas and thoughts much appreciated.
