I hadn't thought of that.

I will give the gasket and sealant one more go first , I just haven't had the time to work on the car because of the NEC show.
I'll probably have a look over the Christmas holidays, if I have no luck I'll be in touch David !

Although I'm a stickler for authenticity, we will be fitting an electric pump near the fuel tank to work in tandem with the mechanical one - no more cranking after the Fulvia hasn't been used in a while!  Grin

I added an electric pump to my 2c a couple of years ago, as I was fed up with churning the engine over so much, it was well worth doing.
After i've switched the pump on and the warning light has stopped flickering, I turn the pump off, turn the engine over while at the same time operating the choke, and she fires instantly, what bliss Grin no more mechanical torture! only problem is that this doesn't cure any leaks at the mechanical pump, but it certainly makes life easier.
