Following Al's reccomendation I contacted Dell'Orto directly about fuelling the beast. They recommended

Facet Red Top Competition Fuel Pump- pumps 35 gallons per hour!!!!
with
Filter King 85mm Pressure Regulator 1-7PSI

Unfortunately they are £75 and £55 respectively but after a quick ebay visit I got them both for £80.

Massive shopathon today.

As previously mentioned I have ordered my fuel pump and pressure regulator. The DPNW sway bar mounting kit I require is out of stock so waiting word on that. Dan is going to the states and bringing me back wheel bearings, CV boot kits, an exterior door handle, TAB's and an auto trans cooler. From Premier Autoparts I have ordered front brake calipers, belts, washer motor and track rod ends. Off ebay I have also ordered front brake pads and a battery isolation switch.

I am going to try to replace the steering rack bushes myself and have ordered a 36mm X 500mm white acetal rod to get machined. I am waiting word back on headlights and my rear calipers are on their way to Ward engineering for refurb tomorrow. Martin is providing new front springs when they are available at the end of April.

Might be worth getting a job lot of the steering rack bushes done if they work out to do the job!

Good luck with the project :)

If you look at Kennys on the DOI forum it looks the part. I will get whatever 500mm will produce I suppose. I would reckon that would be a fair few. It is only £6.67 for the material anyway so worth a try
