Default Ur warm up regulator fuel pipes

Mine are both a bit rusty at the fuel distributor end.
Probably fine for another few years but I would not like them to split while driving!
Anybody got two spare and would like to sell both please? Or can they be re-crimped?

Thanks Mike. You’re a star!

I also wonder if the warm up regulator is the reason my car starts like an absolute pig, but settles down to an excellent idle and runs fine after 10-15 seconds or so (I’ll time it properly today).

I’ve disconnected the cold start valve but the smell on start up is very rich.
On a long run I’m getting 33mpg, and the plugs do look lean.

I don’t have a pressure tester to check WUR operation-would you say that’s next step?
I have to be careful removing the fuel pipes as they are not brilliant.
Thanks again!

Found them - feed and return. PM me

For fuel pressure, it should start low around 1.2-1.5 bar and increase when warm to 3.3-3.8 bar. I'm not 100% sure on the numbers for your engine.

Make sure everything else is in good order. Fuel delivery, injectors not leaking, check valve working correctly, accumulator diaphragm good.

I got my tester from a German seller and it was easy to setup and confirmed a warm up regulator fault straight away.

Will send pm...
I am scheduled to check the injectors tomorrow.
I have 5 glass pots for the ends to sit in for 24 hours!

I will look for fuel gauge later too.
Thanks again!
