Re: Build progress

Fired her up for first time. Started almost immediately and runs well, albeit rather loud with no silencers fitted. Had hoped that getting it running might cure leak from pressure regulator but not the case. No leak whilst engine running so started to celebrate but then noticed very slow drip when s...

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

Hi John, Will try starting with “plug” out. Will then buy aftermarket regulator. There is one called a PR159 which is similar to existing with same ports and costs about £80. Most others don’t seem to have a return to the tank so are presumably not suitable. If anyone can recommend a type that will ...

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

Hi John, Really appreciate your info. The regulator is std type fitted to Cali EV between 1997 - 2000. It has 3 main ports (plus the breather on the top), the one on the underside being the return to the tank with the horizontal ones being the supply from the filter and the feed to the injectors. As...

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

John, thanks for info. There is very slow drip from “breather pipe” but if it only goes to atmosphere would it still work if I simply plugged the pipe?

Fuel pressure regulator

Am almost ready to start engine so put some petrol in tanker and ran pump to check for leaks. All seemed ok but a bit later I noticed wet patch on floor. Inspection revealed a very slow drip coming from the breather pipe attached to the top of the pressure regulator. Maybe it will sort itself out wh...

Re: Build progress

Can’t stand (or understand) wiring so pleased to say have just completed ignition wiring and everything worked first time!! Will have to do some lengthening/shortening and tidy things up once all the rest of the wiring is done. Can’t try starting engine, lack of exhaust system, but fuel pump works a...

Re: Build progress

Unexpected progress! Thanks to help from Chris Pleasance, who spent the day with me, and advice from Richard the engine is in. Even with an engine crane I would have struggled on my own so Chris’s offer of help was rapidly accepted. Had problems getting the UJ to clear the bulkhead - had to put extr...

Re: Build progress

Brakes, incl handbrake, finished. Petrol tank and all fuel lines fitted. Reverse gearbox, driveshafts and bearings fitted - this part of build has caused numerous cuts and grazes to hands so quite pleased it’s done. Was supposed to be away this weekend but had to cancel so have spent some time on da...
