Don't forget to put copper grease or never-seez on the bolts before tightening the nuts up. If the stainless nuts and bolts seize, you will never undo them.

Sorry, missed off the link to the studs:

Those are only 1" (25mm) too short if you have a thick aluminium sump plate.

I made my own studs from ¼whit bolts.
I cut the hex head off and ran a ¼bsf die down the plain part of the bolt.

Got pictures but can't put them on site as the size is too big. My technical ability will not let me shrink them.... Griff

Send them attached to an email to editor.

I used the third one down - the reserve type - on my A10, did not leak but it was poorly made, the hole in the metal part of tap was not deburred and the hole in rubber seal did not completely line up with the hole in the tap. Problems rectified with fettling but at that price it is hard to complain.

You will need a 1/4BSP to 3/8 BSP adaptor to go in the tank.

Below is what they look like inside.

Thanks for that Julian.
Is this the kind of adapter required ?  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bsp-Adaptor-reducer-Male-3-8-to-1-4-Bsp-Female-for-Pneumatics-etc/120806627065?hash=item1c20a2d6f9:g:aboAAMXQfvlSlk8D

I am confused as to which on of these (if any) taps is best to replace my dripping pull on taps.  https://www.feked.com/carbs-fuel/fuel-taps/1-4-taps/   

Thanks.

Bluing on the exhaust can be removed with Solvol Autosol. It takes a of rubbing but once removed it will not return.   8)
