Attached is a photo of the first six-cylinder C26W engine fitted to an Austin-Healey (BN3/1) that shows the plate towards the front.


The engine has since been rebuilt and is back in the car.

Yes Harold, The earlier 6 cylinder engines used this blanking plate to cover the fuel pump hole.

Full disclosure the attached picture is not my engine but mine should look similar some day. On the side of the block there is a mounting point for a fuel pump just to the left of the SP casting mark. It looks like versions of this engine block used in other cars had a cam driven fuel pump. I am interested to know the size of the hole in the block for the cam driven pump and if BMC ever supplied a blanking plate to cover the hole. Part number appreciated if it exists.



Thanks in advance.... Harold
