also got my header take off valve sorted got it from honda

also managed to source a electrical plug for my fuel tank the unit in my fuel tanks is a p38 range rover one managed to source a plug from a scrape range rover if you need one of these. if the fuel tank is in the car there is no inspection hatch you will need to cut the floor of the range rover google it you will find what you need on this subject hope this helps

Looks promising, I am just in the process of reworking my fuel system so would be interested in your fuel system diagram. Just about to post my proposal on my build thread.

Just a suggestion but I would consider putting the filter (currently post swirl pot and post 2nd pump) in front of the pump, between swirl pot and 2nd pump. that way your pump is seeing clean fuel.

using these as a through bulkhead connection for the battery terminals as they do not cut against the bulkhead
