Hi Any

Mk1 headlamp protectors are pretty much no existent, I have a set on mine which I bought years ago and are after market. They normally fetch more than the headlamps themselves.

The fuel pump is readily available on eBay

Good luck with the 16RS LHD, that car was so nearly scrapped more than once!

He said heat protectors Tim :lol:

I never even thought of them as heat protectors, just plastic spacers. I know some fuel pumps run with them, and some without (as there are two different depths of plunger on the pump) and the carbs I always assumed it was because they adjusted in the inlet track length.

Sadly don't have any spare, but wouldn't be too tricky to get some made out of delryn or something.
