    No my van but my other old vehicle.

    1951 Humber Supersnipe, fuel pump shat it, only had it 4 months, the old owner fitted an electric fuel pump to it just before selling it to help the mechanical one , no idea what pressure it putting out as there is no details on the pump, but one thing I know it is far too much, disconnected it a few weeks after ownership and it ran fine on the mechanical but think the damage had been done and the diaphragm went, rebuild kit on order and a ride home on a tow truck

    Pict ,,,,,they are great photos, im almost dribbling on the key board with envy. Not sure what the production date was on the one i drove but what ever it was it was something one does not forget. Is this one original or has it been restored,not that it makes any diff .

    This one is all original apart from a spray job, kinda a pearly coca-cola liquid colour from the original black and it's had the interior fully done apart from the dash, the seats are now not leather but you would hardly know.

    Got the other pictures resized:

My wife wants a Bently so i said OK {get them cheap enough now } low $30Gs, but she suddenly changed her mind, funny about that aint it .She thought i was going to trade in the Kombi,:eek: Funnyyyyyyyyyo_O
