The beast has had a recent head gasket and some welding up of the rear wheel arches.. but despite all this upheaval (things being dismantled and put back together) it's been running booootiful.
Then last night he just died.. on the A217 (though that's not really relevant
The RAC came and had a look but as usual they couldn't fix it.
There's no power to the fuel pump. The relays work okay and the fuses etc. all check out.
Engine turns over, TDC is good.. the "problem" is definitely no leccy at the fuel pump.
But matey also primed the pump manually using a direct feed from the battery.. and the car still didn't start.. so he thinks the fuel regulator (?) isn't doing a particularly good job / either.
The fuel cut-off switch has power to it and is operating properly (though RAC-man said that didn't mean it wasn't broken).
Anyone have any ideas about anything else? I'm useless at electrickery things. I know the welder had the rear seats out and there's some black boxes under there. COuld he have disturbed something? It was only 10 days ago..
And is the "manual priming of the fuel pump not working" significant? Or do I need a new regulator soon but that's not the problem?
The lad was doing so well up till now..
