It's just an s-shaped tube welded in the round end plate. Fuel passes through an inline filter then external pump, then original filter ... all mounted on bulkhead. I'll look for photos.

Merlin Motorsport in the UK sell the in tank pump, it’s a Land Rover or Range Rover, their code is ITP101. You have to remove the cradle from the tank, then replace the pump part, and refit it all. It’s not too hard, but it does mean draining and dropping the tank so it’s not a particularly quick job.

That's an elegant and clever long term solution, like it. Thanks ECR for your knowledge and suggestions, sadly I am struggling to plumb in my mates pressure gauge due to the crimped hoses etc.

But think it may well be the only way to be sure will check prices on new pump as it is a rolling restoration (52000 kms and 15 years) so happy to replace new parts as and when. Any other advice would be great Ill keep going til its fixed or Im broke! :)

The crimped hoses aren't an issue.  Under the crimp is a barbed connector so once the  crimp is cut off you can secure the hose with a standard hose clip.

SM25T - Does the installation include a swirl pot after the pump?

No swirl pot on my car. What does it do, apart from swirl ?

Swirl pots hold a bit of fuel to allow for starvation further back along the line in case of low fuel, hard cornering etc. don’t they?

Roller pumps are designed to have a gravity or pressure fed supply and often object to having to lift their own fuel, using a 044 type pump externally is on my list but I will be putting an outlet into the lower front edge of the tank with a welded JIC fitting.

Good to see you have a pre filter, these are often missed out Thumb Up

Well, done a huge tour of Germany since external pump fitted. No problems.
