And (slightly tongue in cheek) a mobile phone! And more seriously a Lithium battery pack with a reasonable capacity for the car, phone and laptop.

Recovery membership with a mobile phone will cope with most real emergencies, antifreeze mix, oil, engine and gearbox, WD40, tool kit, tow rope, torch, fuses, fan belt, electric tyre pump, pair of Magnetic flashing emergency breakdown lights as no hazard flashers.
But a lot more comprehensive when abroad.
With the priming pump fitted, I don't need to carry a spare fuel pump as the priming pump is for emergency use as well.

When I read ďengine and gearboxĒ I thought how am I fitting those in the boot. 🤣
Then I twigged you meant oil.

Thanks for your advice.
I hope I donít ever have to carry anything other than spares. Iím running out of boot space.

Managed to fit new electric pump and filter/regulator. Isolation switch and inertia switch installed also .
No more cranking to get fuel to the carbs.

I like the gauge. What is it's range? The ones I have seen seem to go to over 100 PSI

I got round to starting my engine yesterday and having put the electric and mechanical pump in series (electric first, then mechanical) the electric pump didn't get anything through so I changed the pipes to just leave the electrical pump and at least got it running. Not sure if I've done something wrong or the electric pump on my car isn't powerful enough but I'll redo the pipes to put them in parallel and see how that works.

It was running quite badly so a few other things to sort out first anyway. I shared a video of the engine running in the club Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/andysherratt/videos/10158636112582188/ if anyone is interested. Pretty sure it was only firing on three cylinders and wouldn't idle, but running is an improvement!!

I did that once with my Beta. Not as hard as you might think.
