  1. Our Herald 13/60 has an intermittent problem with fuel flow stopping and the engine cutting out. This was diagnosed as a faulty fuel pump. We went to Rimmer Bros and they supplied a universal replacement fuel pump. It had a different arm that slots into the engine and they said this was not an issue. Unfortunately it has been and after a couple of breakdowns the AA helped and the man kindly called an old friend who explained that there are a variety of different specific pumps across the range of Heralds depending upon the engine. Apparently the universal one can slip a bit and not pump as it should. Can anyone advise what we can do. Is there anywhere where the original pump could maybe be refurbished - or a supplier that might have the correct one. Any help would be great. The car runs fine for hours and then just cuts out as the fuel is intermittently not going through the system. I have attached images of the original pump and the universal one - the significant difference being the arm. Any advice much appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Thanks for the help. For the record our Herald has 155/80 R13 79T Tyres and we now have some arranged at a good price so all is fine. Many thanks ! Andrew
  3. Thank you so much Doug, That's great ! Just to make sure that I was looking in the right place is it the Avon ZT5 175/70 R13 82T tyres that you have used for your Herald ? They look to be decent tyres & incredibly good value. Andrew
  4. We have just purchased a Herald 13/60 convertible and wondered if anyone can advise the best place to get a set of 4 new tyres best suited to the car - and at a good price ? We found a place offering 4 original style 145R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO tyres but at £400 for 4. If anyone knows an alternative source that might be more economical that would be great !
