The tank is a thing of beauty, but would it fit? After the last of the friends had left the following morning I set too & yes, not only did it fit, it fitted beautifully, the only fly in the ointment being that as I jacked the centre of the rear axle to put the axle stands under it, the car slipped off the jack & the jack pad severed the cross-axle brake pipe - ARSE!
I've replaced the pipe, but as I type the bleeding isn't going well.
But progress has continued & the tank is now fully plumbed in except for one jubilee clip on the tank. I asked Grace to weld a high pressure pump mount on the tank in preparation for removing the low pressure pump & swirl pot, this meant a 12mm outlet & a temporary 12 - 8mm adaptor, but I have no pipe clips the right size.
