Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.

Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

Many thanks

  • [Wanted] Maestro Turbo Fuel tank

    We're still experiencing fuel problems which prevented #68 arriving in Milton Keynes on Sept 30th. We fix one problem only to discover another, and we are now reaching the conclusion that we need a replacement tank. I guess good second hand tanks are like hen's teeth, so we're looking for a good specialist who can build one for us. Any recommendations gladly received.

    If you want to prove if you have a fault with the existing tank, is it worth using a good ordinary tank and piping in an external swirl pot temporarily, just to confirm one way or the other?

      Yep we're checking that out this week Pete. Our suspicions are that the outlet pipe has a pin hole on the inside. When the tank is full then all is well, but when it drops to half full then air is being sucked in. We've opened up the tank twice already, so I guess we'll do it for a third time if necessary.
