    hi tony.....Hope this is of some help mate.

    A.....
    No you cannot bin unless you are putting carbs on... Did you notice it has Ford stamped on it..... It is a re-circulating Valve for the emmition control the other 2 connections on the valve are for 1 blue pipe which should be located near the valve (goes on top connection), And the bottom connection is a black thin pipe which connects to the underneath the throttle body..

    B...... No you cant bin this either again unless your putting carbs on... This valve is to do with the Fuel Pressure Regulator... One of the pipes connects from this valve to the regulator and the other, a really long pipe i may add connects to the Auxilliry air valve located on the cylinder head near the distributor

    C..... this is you main fuel intake pipe from your tank, if you are putting carbs on you need this so dont blank it, You may need to chop it and extend it for a set of carbs...

    D....... Try bleeding the clutch, If that dont work you may have to pull the piston out of the slave cylinder and clean it up as it could well be siezed..

    You clutch slave is mounted different to mine, but the cylinder is the same. The rebuild kei is a round 60p it has a new boot, clip and piston seals. Never buy those cylinders just rebuild them (fiat parts). You need to see if the bullet end of the piston comes out far.....

    enough to meet the clutch fork lever, if not then the foork may not have the right release bearing inside the bell housing. But if its all tipo and andy put the release bearing in then it should be ok. Clean up the cylinder first and bleed the system.

    If you are going carbs then you will need a low pressure fuel pump not the efi one currently there.

    You must speak to guy croft about the carb jetting, he will give you the sizes you need from the top of his head, and these ARE the sizes you must use!!

    That wire is not an engine loom item so dont fuss with it at the moment.

    Ok, just answer a few points in one swoop... the car is keeping the injection system I don't want to go messing with carbs if i can help it.

    more than enough the rod is extended beneath the arm at the moment... as of this time i don't think it requires rebuilding but then i haven't seen it move either yet.

    The donor Thema used a Bosch system not the Magnetti Marrelli thing. I don't think there is any reason that Sumplug would have changed it from standard.
