Various parts for resurrecting abandoned M100

Postby slimlavud » Sun 13.08.2017, 21:25

I'm getting a sadly abandoned M100 turbo going again after it has sat outside for several years. I started by taking the fuel pump out and siphoning two gallons of old petrol and water out of the tank. The fuel pump was seized but after some WD-40 and poking gently with a screwdriver it sprang into life and seems to pump properl, but the filter has rotted off the bottom of the pump...
Plus I need a filler neck (almost rusted through...) and a few other bits, full list below. I don't mind fairly used parts as the budget is pretty tight for this project!

I'm in north London but travel to Farnborough in Hampshire three times a week so can collect at points in between...

Fuel filler neck.
Gasket under neck.
Gasket top side Same as above gasket).
Plate top side of filler neck.
Screws plate to neck (2 off).
Filler cap seal or fuel filler cap with good seal.
Six plastic screws and plugs ('scrivets').
Trim upper near side door behind mirror mount.
Cap for offside wiper arm base (pivot).
Filter for fuel pump base (inside tank).

I'm at 07896 921115. Simon. Thank you.

You should be able to get a filler cap at any decent auto-parts store..
The wiper arm covers are still available from SJ's - I think about 8 quid each

The wiper arm covers are the same as the Range Rover. Probably a slightly cheaper solution...

DCP4918 or DCP4918EVA fitted to rear wiper of 200 coupé MGF / TF

The best fuel filter I found for inside the tank is for a Volvo 780 or similar. IT fits best in the small well in the bottom of the tank.

I will check out my local car parts store for the filler cap...

Thank you both, I had cross-referenced the wiper arm cover with Rovers etc already... very helpful...

I found that Demon Tweeks list the correct AC filter 'sock' part number FT-AB-001 on their website for £6.75 but are also trying to sell it on ebay for £14.58 including postage...

The fuel pick up pipe will also be at or towards the bottom of the tank. It is fitted to that, but not "at the bottom". See parts catalogue section 44.03a.

To actually get it to the bottom, remove filter, hold over tank access hole and let go :lol: :lol:

Many engines such as Stihl chainsaws/disc cutters and small Honda plant engines use an additional in-tank filter attached to the pick-up pipe.

Don't hold it against them ... they are only trying to cover ebay & Paypal charges . If you ever see anything posted on ebay from a company that has it's own website it's worth checking price for buying direct ...

Its called a fuel sock and its to help the pickup of fuel. Will also keep out any debris your children put in as 'fuel additives'.
