Byron Posted December 27, 2020 Share Posted December 27, 2020 Hi guys, I hope you’ve all had a happy Christmas with your families! I have 3 new questions. Hopefully they straight forward. I have checked older posts and it has briefly touched on the subjects:- 1. We have a perfect rubber fuel tank, with a fuel stabiliser will it hold up to the modern petrol. A previous thread said no to modern fuel, it goes to jelly but no mention of a stabiliser. Is anyone running the rubber tank with success? 2. our internal fuel pump in the tank is in a bad way but fixable! (full of crust, some rust and crystals) I can take the time to rebuild it with new motor brushes, cut new gaskets, solder the electric cable back and clean it all to a usable standard. Are they reliable when good and can they withstand our modern fuels? Is any one running the old internal fuel pump? Am I better off hiding a modern pump inside the fuel tank for reliability? 3. I have put a new thermostat in our engine. Unfortunately the original one had leaked it’s fluids and did not work. I have used a modern 180F thermostat. Should I have gone for the lower temperature 160F so it opens quicker? The engine will hit a peak temperature and the thermostat will stay open anyway. I appreciate your thoughts? Thanks in advance Byron Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
