I don't think there would be an insurance company that would give me a public liability policy after seeing that work.

Hi Swishy, the cork is not getting up into the tank only faling apart and into the bowl. It is either very rust or silt inside the tank. Latest game plan is to allow it to flow along the fuel line if it is small enough to get past that tube I drilled today then it in theory should stay in the glass fuel bowl where I can see it easily and get rid of it easily. Then that gauze should prevent a lot of stuff making it to the carby, but I do have an inline filter I can fit but so far I don't think it is needed. I can drop the bowl from the carby without having to remove the carby with just 4 screws if needed.
Will see what happens tomorrow while I continue to play.

Your regulator contacts may be sticking. Best weapon is a diamond file. Not cheap, but will last you forever. Very thin, good for getting into regulator contacts. Worth checking regulator earth (relative to battery, not just tractor).

Today I went back to the fuel tap to confirm that I get full flow through it now. No, nothing! After a few minutes of choice words and an appology to any one with in ear shot I took the tap handle off as there is another cork gasket there. Gasket was in good condition but had a problem. There are a pair of tags that stick out side of the housing to locate the gasket in the correct position to align all 4 four holes. So I made a new one with tags and fitted it. I have closed and opened the tap a few times now and seems to be good. I will post pics tomorrow on the tap.
As for the sparkles. I agree Jarrod that the points must be frozen somewhere in the regulator and being a Lucas RB108 should be a fixable problem once I get access to where it hides, right behind the scuttle plate. I actually do hav e 3 diamond files BUT they have a plastic surround and not designed for doing fine work. Cost under $5.00 on fleabay and have done a lot of work and as suggested always use them with water. So next time for playing I will look at that.
I noticed that the multimeter shows high voltage output up to 20v but the Volt gauge on the dash reads just above 12v at high revs. Amp gauge shows just on the + side at high revs but pull the lights on and it drops to being on the - side.

Been a day of kaos around here today. I managed to remove the regulator a Lucas RB108 which has the rubber grommets on the front to gain access to the adjusting screws. To confirm the points are sticking I will have to unfold the aluminium cover from the base and play around with it. Then a friend rang with some troubles that needed our attention and help so we both lost a couple of hours there. The rest of my day was spent getting to know my specialist even more. So had not time to upload the pics from yesterday so it is a waiting game.

Well at least here is a picture of the cork gasket for the 2 way tap. Never got near David today I've been installing new curtain tracks in the caravan.

Boy, that is a grainy cork gasket. I would be worrying about crumbs coming loose.
