good choice we're based nr Caernnarfon on The Menai, if weather is good well try to catch up with you at some point, Sth Stack is well worth a visit on a good day, loads of sea caves etc to explore

we had a 90hp Ermintrude Fitch a few years back, ran great most of the time but had a problem with a anti syphon valve on the fuel filter, ended up getting a new fuel filter assembly to sort it, ran great in a tank but just died under load, not the best thing to happen on The Mersey

we could keep the ermintrude running by pumping the primer bulb, but not when under load, fuel problems can take an age to sort

no probs, just let me know, sooner the better as he get busy once the season starts

no idea about your engine but some do have a filter on the fuel pump, maybe worth having a look at that, that's were the non return valve was fitted on our ermintrude, it was only partially opening up and so causing fuel starvation
