[Healeys] A Mystery

I can only speak for a BJ8.  It came equipped with a sock-type filter over the PU tube--inside the tank.

It was whitish in color --mesh type---and as I remember some cloth-like material.

What kind of 'filter' is there in the tank?  Anyone have a photo?

We dismantled an original BN2 tank, and there was nothing but a tube to 
(almost) the bottom.

> Have you ever replaced the "in-tank" fuel filter?  If not this could be your problem.  The same thing you described happened to me years ago.  It drove me crazy until I had the tank opened.  The in-tank filter was chocked full of "stuff".  I pulled it, sealed the tank, added an in-line filter and never had the problem again.
