[ROVERNET - UK] Fuel Leak Update

Having taken apart the mechanism, it does make sense to replace the needle
and seat and because the parts are likely to be relatively universal across
the SU range, then obtaining them form your nearest carby specialist should
not be a problem or search for Burlen fuel systems and you will find the UK
manufacturer distributor of SU's.  The float level requires adjusting and if
you have a manual this will specify the settings.  The chamber will be full
when you take it apart and the idea of the float is to maintain the fuel
level in the chanmber at the correct point.  I can email the pages out of
the manual if you do not have them.
