After cleaning out a large amount of sludge from the block and fitting Ron's superbly made side plate ,four years of over heating problems for the main part have  been sorted out.

Yesterday I used the car on a 20 mile jolly to the coast, in hot (for the uk) 33c heat.It cut out in a traffic jam and after driving slowly on the way home.

The problem starts when the fuel stops flowing through the glass filler to the carburettor; I lift the bonnet to let the engine cool down a bit after four or five minutes the fuel will suddenly starts to flow agin.

I wonder if this is a problem with the  Stuart Vacuum tank vacuum / vent sticking when hot ?

I had a similar problem with mine when the flapper valve in the vacuum tank started sticking so I had to take it apart and clean everything to get rid of the gunk that had built up. It is running fine now. I even managed to win an AACA Senior award with it this weekend.
