Hi All

I would just like to say a thank you to a kind member that sent me a bottle in the post.

Sadly it was a Heller unit not the Tudor unit Im looking for, as seen in the pictures.

If any one has a Tudor unit in any condition, broken or damaged, or can help me find one I would really appreciate it.

Best regards to all

Yes to all three,especially if it's cold enough where you are to freeze the water (no antifreeze?)...

Another possibility is that the switch in the dash has dirty or slightly corroded contacts due to lack of use.
I discovered that fault after fitting a new modern pump which also failed to work.
Actuating the switch a few times brought the required result.
