Re: Red Mk1 16v

You are a star, thanks again.it is the rusty metal pipes that have disintegrated . I have temporarily used rubber hose and am getting fuel to the inlet rail but not sure if it's getting any further yet. The pump runs when the starter cranks but not when the key is released back to the run position.
