Great job !!! and even though I didn’t take Doris for a long run out she performed very well around the block. Can’t wait to give her a good run out.thanks again Murrayminor....

Re: Doris cuts out

Thanks for replies. We did not put an inline fuel filter on after the pump. So may have dragged more dirt up past the fuel pump filter. Who knows. All I know is I’m having Doris brought up-to Atherton and let a trusted and competent motor mechanic who my uncle has used for years look at her. Hopeful...

Re: Doris cuts out

as I said I am no expert but she was ticking over nicely on the drive for 10 minutes then just cut out , and checked the fuel gauge and this was showing empty so assumed she ran out of fuel , put in £7 of fuel and gauge up to quarter tank . I might have to see if I can find a local mechanic who has ...

Re: New member...

Hi thanks for reply. Checked fuel pump and it is clicking and delivering fuel to the float chamber then stops clicking as float chamber full. I’m wondering if the fuel is getting through to the carb. What you think I should try next ? Cheers
