I have an early 1949 d1 which still has its original fuel pipe. After crud blocking my carb on a couple of occasions I have decided to replace it with a rubber one with filter. Can someone please advise me on where I can get fittings for the tank tap and carb and what size they are. Thanks

Hi, yes I believe they are 7/16 and I got one recently from Villiers parts, they supply a pipe that you can cut to size an fitting.

Hi Rory,

I would be very much inclined to clean and seal the tank if you haven’t already done so, and replace the internal gauze filter which is soldered to the brass tank/tap adaptor. Fine filter gauze is readily available and a M12 bolt makes a perfect former to make a new filter tube. This should solve the crud problem and you could keep your original fittings.

Many thanks for the advice. I will check the inside of the tank. I would like to keep the original in place if possible.
