21 Penthouse

Postby stephendell » Mon Feb 11, 2013 5:15 am

Due to a mains water leak I had to dust down and move the Penthouse racer last week. Re-kindled my interest and so gave the car a bit of TLC.

After re-fitting the rear shocks first was was the fuel system.

John removed a link pipe that need some alloy welding and we completely stripped out the fuel system in the boot to check and clean everything.

Found a rusty brake pad, rusty but new sparkplug & wheel nut and some other rubbish under the tank support.

Image

Boot cleared out and tank base cleaned up.

Image

Auxilary fuel tank.

Image

Foam filled.

Image

Checked, cleaned and refitted in boot.

Image

RH filler reassembled and refitted.

Image

LH filler reassembled and refitted.

Image

View of both fillers from rear of the car. Link pipe to be refitted when it comes back from the ally welder. Spill pipes to be replaced and fitted.

Image

Tank spout detail. Rubber edge trim fitted to cut out. You can see how clean the car is underneath in these photos.

Image

Tank link tube joining boot and under car tanks. There is an additional fill link inside the boot which has been sent away to have the roll over valve connection welded back on.

Image

Group N front suspension leg repainted and ready to re-fit with new bushes and top mount.

John helped me dismantle the fuel system on Friday until 7pm.

He couldn't face the tedium of the checking and reassembly so went home for the weekend to help his dad with the Fleischman. In fact like most of the projects here he probably assumed it would then stay in pieces for years.

I'm guessing he is as suprised as you that it is all back together :shock:
