    TE fuel tank replacement

    When I get back today I'll run a wire brush over it, see what it's really like.

    TE fuel tank replacement

    Mate, that needs at least POR99. I just find it hysterical that it went to Goodwood on one of the hottest days of the year before delivery to me! They must have needed respirators.

    It's yours for £25.

    TE fuel tank replacement

    This one's in for a fuel tank, speedo/indicator/hazard investigations, and MoT. The tank is undoubtedly the worst I've ever pulled from a working Esprit. Even cornering would've thrown fuel. He's a lucky guy! The bottom of the tank isn't bad at all. Curiously, the float has liquid in it, but no evidence of damage. Hey ho, new float on order...

    Mais naturellement! Also found out why I got a big fuel bonus. The sender float is 30% full of petrol.

    You know. He popped over for a quick check. I opened my front door and told him he needed a tank without even looking at it!

    Yes, 4.5 fecking gallons (ask me how I know), and it'd just been to Goodwood and back!

    Just taking out the RH tank from an '85 TE. I think this one qualifies for my black museum.

    labour time for b service.

    Was the level checked at time of purchase? Might have been low already, and perhaps a weak pressure cap vented enough to trigger the warning. Although I agree the rad is waiting for God.

    Yeah, but that's just a couple of C cells.
