      The relays are the same as an early V8 range rover

          Thanks Jeff, I have ordered 2 direct replacement relays - updated number of original bosch relays that were fitted - as old part num is obsolete. Still awaiting their arrival.

            Our car just got harder to start, until it just wouldn't start. Have you checked the multi plug under washer bottle. Good luck.

              Well managed to dig into it Friday afternoon - removed old fuel filter - fairly clean fuel flowing out of outlet - lots of crud inlet. - fitted new fuel pump with a temp plastic filter between it and the tank. Not ideal as bore not as large as original. fitted new relays and fuel pump. started ignition pump was now running for 3 seconds. repeated until fuel coming out of main fuel filter - reconnected pipes. Car then fired after several attempts but then ran rough for 30 sec before wouldnt restart. Ran out of time but i suspect not enough fuel coming thru temp fuel filter so i'm starving it. going to put a larger bore temp filter in as i dont want to drop tank quite yet and try again. How easy are they to drop off?
              on a happier note - used saturday to fit new clutch pipe to my mg metro - clean car and it won best mg in a local show on sunday.... now it needs an mot then i might be able to attack maestro again.

                There are only four bolts holding the tank in, and the pipes of course. If you are planning to drop th tank out, start spraying penetrating oil on the bolts and clips now and keep doing it once week until the day you undo them. It might be uneccesary, but better safe than sorry. It might be that it is being recalictrant because of air in the system...if you keep trying it may go...I had a similar problem once on the side of the road and it eventually fired up and drove off as if nothing had happened...

                  if dropping tank isnt too bad i might do sooner rather than later then to get crud out.

                    as long as the bolts don't snap an the pipes come off ok, it isn't bad. You don't need to take the front 2 bolts right out, as tank holes are slotted, so it just slides backwards. Prob a good idea to take them right out after tank is off and grease them to make future removal easier

                        sender connections are on the front of the tank, so easy to get at..
