DB18-1 Petrol Reserve Tap

Our DB18 has fuel in tank but none is reaching carb. We think it's the Petrol Reserve Tap seals (have seen similar posts here which indicate this).
Does anyone have a diagram that shows how it fits and comes apart please so we can try and replace seals or by-pass all together?
Thanks

Re: DB18-1 Headlights

Thanks all for the replies, looks like I've got some wiring to do!
It was a barn find so hidden away for about 30 years so probably why it's got away with it thus far.

Will register with DB18.org

HT Leads for a DB18-1

Hello, looking for advice re purchasing a new set of HT leads for our DB18-1.
Can you still buy sets or do I have to make my own?
Any suggestions appreciated

DB18-1 Headlights

We've recently purchased a DB18-1 and noticed that the offside headlamp was out when on dipped beam, OK on main beam. Checking the bulb and then the wiring diagram, I see it only has one filament/feed so will only work on one setting!
Which should it be please, dipped or main?
