It's finally warm enough in the shed to start this job. The fuel system has been extensively "modified": all the return section, mini-fuel tank, secondary filter and associated lines have been removed. I'm trying to return it to standard.

1) The engine started and ran fine, but how come fuel wasn't spraying all over the place from the disconnected top rail?

2) The new lines I've bought don't quite fit: they will need to be bent to make the various junctions, as shown by the arrows in the photo. Is this usual? How best to do it?

3) Does the T section bolt to the battery shelf?

As ever, all help gratefully received ...

The leakoff line at top of injectors has very little fuel inside with good injectors. Only leakoff fuel past each tip valve is what the line takes back to tank return.

Hi Witzend,
The pipe from the thermostart fits in the lower port of the fuel reservoir. The 'T' piece does fit onto the front of the battery tray.
Hope the attached pipe layout will help.

Thanks for that, very reassuring - hopefully rail is not blocked then. Tx for reply

'afternoon DavidP,

Thanks for reply your drawing is much better than schematic i have and I think I now know where everything's meant to go. Any thoughts on why the new lines (Sparex) don't fit properly? Am i ok to bend them with a mini pipe bender?

Hi again,
Yes, I see you have a hand pipe bender. Much better than in the fingers. Yes, no problem. The only thing is to be careful if you have to bend the pipes attached to the 'T' piece. They frequently break there. If you have to bend them, bend them further along. Use new rubber ferrules if you can.
Cheers
DavidP
