Re: 1934 Rover 12 Petrol tank

Blocked the short pipe up so no reserve.I also now have an in line filter fitted so should be fine.I can`t run it today or tomorrow,as sadly we have two funerals to go to .However I can`t think of anything that needs doing on the car,so twiddle my thumbs till I have time to take it run Len
