June 15th /16th I set off to Evsham on it's 2nd test run towing the Portafold Caravan.
The Ambulance on show at "Wartime in the Vale" weekend.
A few days before this weekend I did some road tests.
I was on my way to Stourbridge when the Ambulance broke down ?
It felt like it ran out of fuel ??
But knowing that I put a full tank in the other day, well I knew it was not that ? It tuned out to be a fuel Blockage in the feed pipe of Silicon Sealer ???? Yes it was enough to stop the engine running ? So after getting that out I bled the petrol through and got going again. the following day I removed the fuel tank out of the vehicle only to find MORE Gob's of silicon sealer in the bottom of the fuel tank ? Yep, it was ALL MY FAULT ! When I put the new tank unit in the fuel tank back in Feb, to be sure I put some silicon sealer around the old gasket !!! It must have fellinto the bottom of the fuel tank and got sucked up the 1/4" feed pipe ! I then cleaned it all out, fitted a gorze on the end of the fuel pipe, fitted a new in line fuel filter.........the Ambulance went to Evesham and back with NO issues.
