While travelling to and taking part in a parade lap at The Silverstone Classic this summer I had a couple of odd incidents.
- While passing travelling across country, the car cut out and coasted to a stop – restarting after maybe 20 seconds.
- While on the parade lap at Silverstone the fuel pump (just behind my seat) went crazy – knocking and clattering away.
Knowing that I already had a spare fuel pump ‘in stock’ I decided that would be a good 1st step towards fixing the issue.
The job was a simple one, but included removal and refitting of the drivers seat to gain good access to the retaining bolts.
- The handbrake works without pulling it up to the sky.
- The car is much more stable under braking.
Upon removal, the old wheel cylinders felt as if notches were worn into the bore, and, my guess is – doing nothing in particular.
