Hi MCN AOO5S I once told an engineer that I put a anti wet sump valve in to stop wet sumping and it worked I also told him I changed  the ball bearing and spring behind the pump but it did not work hence the anti wet sump valve he replied did I gently tap the new ball bearing into the recess to get the bearings profile I said no he said that's why it didn't work. hope this might help Roy

Thanks again the only carb cleaner I have seen in motor shops are the ones that squirts into the inlet when the engine is running would this cleaner be suitable for soaking the carb in and giving it a scub, thanks Roy
