So i finally got some SRM fuel rails, I think Sean has some serious issues, after he mailed my parcel to the wrong address, i had to wait for it to be returned to him, even then he went incommunicado so i had to get a paypal refund via dispute! Eventually I got some unused new second hand ones, so worked out better in the end I guess... though i think its took 4 months!

Anyway, it's back up for sale if anyone is interested 27k, receipts for 42k so far. if no buyer i'll continue.

SRM fuel system is up for sale, however i might use it yet - the dual walboro's people use have a habit of draining the basket, but mine is a single brushless pump with variable rate, so i dont think i would have that problem. Also less heat, i don't want some big pumps constantly running.

Ive not got to the bottom of the issue with the SRM fuel pumps. I think it could be the the fuel basket leaks. If the engine is shut off when the fuel level is below 1/4 tank and left off for a few minutes the car then will not start. There is no fuel pressure and you can hear the pumps running dry. If you turn it off and restart within a minute it will fire back up. Also I have never run out of fuel while the engine is running. Only ever if I turn off then after a few minutes it won’t restart.
The wiring kit is shocking. The relays melted on mine so I ended up swapping the electric kit. The fuel rails are the only part of the kit worth using. The rest is American grade crap.
Matt has a good idea I think which involves doing away with the intake pump(s) and using an inline pump. That is what I’d do next. Possibly something I might as Matt to do in the future. It seems silly me carrying 1/4 a tank of fuel that can never be used.

To me it sounds like your pumps are on all the time, you should just run one with the second activated by a Hobbs switch. That said you're right, Matt asked me to sell mine and use either side of the saddle tank with an external inline pump, but I've asked for quiet brushless pumps, so they're variable and above all else, quiet, as mine is a road car.

No because I can remove the fuse on either pump and it is exactly the same. I’ve even opened the top of the tank when the level is below a 1/4 and seen the basket is empty. I’d go with Matts advise. I know he can be very blunt with his advise at times and I can imagine exactly how that conversation went! Thing is he’s usually right. I might be unlucky with my SRM kit but who knows.

Great work

I had ordered the stage 2 SRM kit from Sean, this was not up to the task, went stage 3 but 9e had to modify the rails further to deliver what was required

Ken was also not satisfied with some of the fixings as quality was below par for what we required

I had no issues at the time with Sean

Keep the updates coming after such a long time, excitement must be mounting now ?

Faried do you have the same issue I have when the fuel level goes down below 1/4 tank?

Maybe mine is an unusual problem then... I really need to investigate it further. I have had the top open and there is fuel in the tank but the basket site above the saddles and is empty.

Aren't there lift pumps to get fuel to there? I must admit I haven't studied the fuel system in detail. I am hoping I won't have to.

There are scavenge pipes that run down in to the corners of the tanks. If I recall these just seem to connect on to the main pump assembly. I do not recall any wires running to a remote scavenge pump as such. So not really sure how it is suppose to work. I need to find some time to investigate it really.
