Upon nearly finished project filled float chamber with fuel and started almost straight away. Repeated this several times but no fuel coming through. Removed mechanical pump and lo and behold, no pushrod. I appear to have lost it during rebuild. Has anyone got a rod to sell me? Tony Wood is investigating for me but no luck thus far. Alternatively does anyone know the dimensions of said rod please.
Thanks chris. Problem now solved by process of elimination. When I rebuilt the car all hoses and pipe work was renewed. I also treated tank with POR-15 inside and out. Going to rear of car and check allflexible connections , found a blockage where I had pushed the flexible on to the new fuel pipe. Checked and cleaned all flexibles , filled float chamber,started her up and happy days. Even ticks over after minor adjustments to carb. When its dry I can get her outside and do ignition and carb tuning.
