Yup, I'm well pleased - so we're off to Maastricht on Friday
BUT it is only one step removed from a self-curing fault - & I HATE those!
Obviously it could've only been a pin prick, otherwise it'd have been a fuel leak, but short of using a magnifying glass I examined those hoses very carefully &,then, only replaced them because I couldn't face the prospect of having to do it all again. Although, without a doubt the worst bit is coming to the job with a full tank (although removing the ply lining runs it a close 2nd!).
The detached filter basket on the floor of the tank was also a bit of a puzzle. Could it really have been so blocked that the force of the returning fuel blew it off?
Anyway the final reassembly was Sunday's job. Saturday's was making some progress with having at least one working horn on the red Cherokee (which has been mute since I bought it the previous Christmas). Seems like it's the clockspring - & I really don't want to go there. So, I've found where I can tap into the earth lead from the relay (not easy by any means) down behind the o/s kickpanel & made a hole where I can fit a "flasher" switch an extended finger's length from the wheel. Just a matter of dropping a lead from the switch down to the relay & another to a suitable earth point, already identified - & only about a foot beneath the switch. Big problem is I can't find my plastic carrier of assorted cable & I've no idea where there's an appropriate shop in Torbay. The weekend before I finally replaced the handbrake AND got it to work - but I'll save that for another time.
Zel, thought I'd found you a pre-facelift Cherokee on eBay - but when I looked at the photos, the LPG tanks (or, rather, their case) takes up virtually all the load space behind the back seat - oh & the colour was wrong.
