Power Steering Pipe

Hi, you can still get them (assuming yours is an air con car) - but they are not cheap and you need a couple of unions that are another £30 for the pair.

You’ll also need the unions for the end of the pipes as they are single use. You need 6742740 and 6772172. Daylight robbery at around £15 each!

Looking to buy - acceptable levels of rust?

That’s not the worst I’ve seen, and fairly typical or arch rot. The quarter panels are available from Ex-Pressed Steel Panels, but they are not cheap. Brilliant quality, but not cheap. They do full sills and will soon do the inner panel too. It’s the panels inside that are the problem. The ones you ...

That’s just an example of a head gasket kit and what you get - I tend to watch out and see when you can drop on a good deal for FAI. Sure I paid about £50 for a set a while back, got Barry one too :grin:

He does say to junk the cam cover gasket and only use ge...

The part is 1031032 but is NLA from Ford last time I checked. If you are rebuilding your engine you’d be as well buying a full head kit that has everything in - just junk the cam cover gasket as you have to go genuine for that! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fu...

Fuel tank

The vast majority of the aftermarket tanks don’t have the same shape swirl pot inside, and the sender unit gets caught so be very careful that what you buy will work.

At the risk of being controversial, is it worth taking it to a specialist? J sounds like he knows how to spanner, but not sure he totally understands all the workings of a Puma and the various little quirks they have, especially on a modified one... just a thought.

Non starter suddenly

If it’s blowing fuses, it’s the pump 100%.

You can do a quick and temporary bodge which worked on mine and that was to put a 30 amp fuse in. It was enough to get the car to the garage and drop the tank. I can’t say I recommend it though as there could be unintended consequences!
