MG Midget and Sprite Technical - A C fuel pump ticking

the ac fuel pump on my midget 1500 has developed a regular ticking noise . Any ideas as to why ?

Not sure if it is the same, but I had a similar problem with the pump on my MKII. It was down to an air leak that causes the pump to keep on trying to pump fuel it is not getting any resistance.

I think your car has been hijacked by mission impossible, and you have 50 seconds to get clear before it self destructs. :)

Sorry, I agree with air/fuel leak scenario actually.

It's just trying to imitate the OEM SU pump ;-) Cheers - Dave
