Re: Rusty Custard

Update on RC - after a long lay-off, we’ve got her back on the road, MOT’d (no advisories). Yesterday Team Rusty Custard took her out for a 500 mile shake down run to see what would fall off. So from Ipswich to Gravesend (A13/M25/A2), Gravesend to Bedford (A2/M25/A1M/A1/A421), breakfast, Bedford to ...

Re: Rusty Custard

Good call on the internal pump filter, we have replaced the rebuilt fuel pump with a new one. On inspection of the old unit, the internal plastic filter was both twisted and detached. The replacement has largely cured the mis-fire apart from when screaming the nuts off it.

Re: Rusty Custard

The external filters are all new. Good point about the internal Pump filter, when I rebuilt the pump, the internal filter was quite distorted and although I corrected it, it would have been better if the rebuild kit had a replacement. It’s possible that the filter has returned to its previous rather...

Re: Rusty Custard

Sorted a Low speed mis-fire seemingly badly adjusted front carb, so need to check the mixtures again. Then took her out for a high (legal) speed test up the local dual carriageway and discovered a high revs stutter when gunning it through the gears, which feels like fuel starvation. I have posted a ...

Mechanical Fuel Pump Differences

We took Rusty Custard out for a blast yesterday, started using the rev band properly. At high revs in the intermediate gears, the engine stutters. From previous experience we reckon that it’s fuel starvation. This is where I need your help. The car has the ‘metal top’ mechanical fuel pump used on la...

Re: Rusty Custard

In the absence of any pre-formed panels, our body man has fabbed up some Sections from scratch and let them in. He’s also added metal back to the door edges and n/s rear wing. Now for the paintwork.

Re: Rusty Custard

Lloyd Reed at South Wales Triumph, lists them but they are out of stock. I don’t suppose Anyone has any in their parts/panels stash by chance?

Re: Rusty Custard

We dropped Rusty into a local body shop and asked them to give us an estimate. Today we went back with fingers crossed. Overall not too bad except the front wings. Does any one know whether there are repair panels available for the bottoms of the front wings and valences? She’s a PFL Mk2? 17E17E35-5...
