Hi again Dave.

Many thanks for your advice regarding the fuel pump. I followed your instructions to the letter and fitted the pump yesterday. I removed the top off the pump today and it was full. Before attempting to start the car, I dropped the bowl from the carb and it was empty, despite replacing the emulsion block and gasket. Therefore, I think that I must admit defeat and throw in the towel with this one! I will search for a good or new/old stock carburettor over the winter months while I have the head off.

Thank you so very much for all of your help and advice.

Warmest regards and best wishes.
