MG Midget and Sprite Technical - After 40 years, the correct fuel pump

Well, my midget 1500 is forty years old... all I know is that during the twenty-three years of my ownership, it's had the earlier mechanical fuel pump fitted, the one without the insulating spacer. Hence several episodes of fuel vaporization during some hot summers over the years, and the fix never occurred to me until recently. I've just fitted the correct pump - with spacer - so we'll see how it goes when the temps elevate. Took me long enough...

Can't rush into these things now, can we.

Let us know how it goes, Just don't take 40 years to get back as some of us will no longer be here/in a position to care :)
