I was going to try Abbey fields next time but at the moment I am very happy with RHS. Maybe not the cheapest but lots included at standard rate and a good service without hours on the phone listening to musak and a recorded message saying “why not try our web site”.
Colin,
I may be slow but I’m rough as well !

Just starting work on the Conquest I need a circuit diagram .Also the car ran out of petrol on my drive ,though gauge showing 1/4 full I pulled the reserve knob but still no petrol to carbs .So I bought a gallon put it in and after a little while turning over it started Is it easy to get to the reserve part in the tank Len

^ maybe the changeover to the reserve pipe isn't changing over (I don't think it's a separate tank, just a lower take-off point) - get as assistant to pull/push the reserve while you peek about at the cable and the changeover
