    Had another close call with A666, Fuel pipe into the Nos perished, pissing fuel out all over the place. Matthew spotted it. New fuel pipe fitted. Phew! Finn.

    Could have been very nasty. Can you use silicone hoses to reduce risk of perishing ?

    I am going to upgrade all the hoses on his winter lay over. Did try braided steel with fancy anodised jubilee clips, but didn't get on with them at all. Too many punctured fingers with the braiding. Finn.

    Noticed that the twin choke Webber was weeping a bit of petrol, so took that off this morning and will be getting it rebuilt at the same time. Finn.

    That reminds me there was someone on here asking about how to get a carbed inlet manifold for a 2.9. Did he get in touch ?

    Not that I know of, I didn't do the conversion myself but can put him in touch with the chap that did, if so desired. Finn.
