New Member - Mark 5
« on: 14 Jun 2022 at 19:50 »
Hi

I've just joined the forum as I've finally got round to tidying my late fathers Mark 5. Obviously its already become more than tidying up and I expect I'll have lots of questions as I am not as handy with a spanner as he was. I was initially going to tidy it up and sell it but I'm now getting attached to it and I expect the plan has already changed.

Well first question is the petrol taps both seized then washed me with some very dark petrol. They are EWARTS Pat No. 345222. How easy is it to replace the corks and where is a good place to source some. Has anyone tried the Viton O Ring conversion?

Found this video and it seems to have the answers and some DIY tips
