well, they have given the engine a clean bill of health, changed a diaphram on the LP fuel pump just to be on the safe side.

He told me to change the primer bulb as wasnt too sure of that one... Computer said all ok so I shall take it out 2moro and see.

If not I have the phone at the ready for monday!

well, touch wood everything is working fine....still get a problem with the primer bulb not pumping fuel from the separator even though I have fitted a new one but the engine is not getting starved of fuel.

I have a fuel switchover valve so I can switch between the main and reserve tank and i m sure this isnt working properly...Can valves/seals go on these things?

It really depends what type of change over switches you are using. Most of them are just a ball valve which dont usually wear.
