Daimler Majestic Major Fuel Tank repairs

Post by Marcus » Tue Jul 09, 2019 7:48 pm

After much cajoling from George Zdanko I have recommenced work on my MM following my return to the UK. Given the fuel in the tank is 12 years old I decided to remove the tank and pump for overhaul.
Once emptied I could see that there is some surface rust present but no holes. The pick up pipes were blocked and the wire mesh covering them also covered in a sticky varnish like substance.
Given my experience with the Dart fuel tank I want to ensure the MM tank is fit for use before I pop it back. I know there are DIY products available but I’d prefer to give the job to a specialist and have them overhaul and make suitable for modern fuels with ethanol. Would be keen to receive any recommendations from forum members regarding reliable specialists in this field.
