    Still haven't got around to fitting the valve or searching further for the leak but.... found a part of the problem! One night during our recent 4wd tour of the south while enjoying a beer I heard hissing from the fuel cap, gave it a spin and it gulped in a huge mouthful of air, even better, the next morning it started first pop. After the next full day of driving I released the cap to the same result and sure enough, the engine firing up first go the following morning. I now need to look into the tank breather set up (likely the fuel cap?) and probably looking for a small air leak s
  10. Unfortunately not, West is 40-50C then it really gets soft, with post cure you can push it nearer to 70C but even then I wouldn't want to go over 50 service. Of course this will be fine if there are no structural loads (Pressure) it may just deform over time or leak a bit. Adr 243 + 140 hardener will get you in the mid hundreds happily, may even get away with a service post cure depending on layup technique. Potentially get away with tapered fittings but it will be prone to small leaks through thermal cycling, BUT I design these things for vacuum service so my expectation for leak ti
  11. Temps will be way high for west system, will need to pick the resin carefully. The tank would be simple and straight forward to make, variety of methods to achieve the end goal, pick the one you like the best. Biggest single hassle is the inlet/outlets, getting fibre orientations etc so they don't snap off or enlarging the bond area to handle it can really complicate things. Perhaps a bond in flange for the cap with integrated fittings?

    return off the injectors always has air, kinda bizzarre, tried to bleed it out but its direct back in there. The fuel lines from the tank are plastic so will have a measure up this weekend, that valve is worth a shot for $20 (if it fits)

    yep, arm was broken so that was replaced early on, bleeding the system as usual works quite effectively. No abnormal performance when running, actually quite impressed with the motor otherwise.

    Nope, living with it cos I just don't have the time to pull the pump and check over all the seals. Where can one find a suitable no-return valve? if its an inexpensive 1 hour fit kinda job it would be useful for diagnosis
