It’s enough to make you weep...

The nut on one of my BMC en­gine’s in­jec­tor pipes has split caus­ing a weep from the in­jec­tor on to the en­gine block. It’s ir­ri­tat­ing, where can I get an­other one?

QA. Most diesel fuel in­jec­tion spe­cial­ists will make up new pipes us­ing the old one as a pat­tern, although you may have to put all the bends in the pipe your­self.

Look in yel­low pages or on Yell etc to find your lo­cal spe­cial­ist. If that does not pro­duce any­thing, ask for a lead at lo­cal sec­ond line (non-dealer) garages, es­pe­cially ones that work on vans etc. The spe­cial­ist might even cut the nip­ple off the old pipe so the nut can be changed and then fit or form a new nip­ple. In that way, you will only have mi­nor pipe bend­ing to do.
