Anyone got a pair of XS fuel taps kicking about, that aren't vacuum operated. Bolt to bolt is 42mm I think.

Long shot I know, but well, you've got to dream! Cheesy Cheesy .............................

MikesXS (in the states), and its European cousin, Heiden, sell new taps.

The info on the sites maybe useful with regard to varients and ID  Wink

I found one and a half fuel taps, the distance between the mounting holes is 45/46mm, but they look like they're vacuum operated and could do with a good clean.

Probably not what you're after but you are more than welcome to them if they will be of use!

I will take them off your hands if that's okay Tom. Think I may have found a modification online, so it will give me something to replace mine with when I f**k up, sorry experiment.

Just let me know how much

I don't want anything for them, its the least I can offer for rehoming your welder!

I'm in Basingstoke (North Waltham), you're welcome to collect them whenever, or I could bring them to the Basingstoke Transport Festival if your'e not in a rush for them - whichever is easiest!

Probably cost about 3 quid to post them.
