I started the V8 on Sunday. It fired up first time, ran for 15 seconds, spluttered, revved up and died. There was some jabbing of the throttle to accompany it all. Now, there's no ticking of the fuel pump and there's some part melted white wires under the bonnet. Fuel pump points welded together, I suspect.
My owner's handbook and all of the other documents I can lay my hands on say that the pump should be an AUF 305, but the rather fuzzy photo shows something which might be an AUB 182. Having said that, there's some odd plastic on it.
Not knowing what the pump is means I can't order any repair parts. Anyway, I think I would prefer to have a pump of the proper specification. The 300 series has been replaced by the 1300 series and Burlen has AZX 1307 and AZX 1308 which look pretty similar to me. All of their others are boot mounted.
It looks as if I need a new pump and fittings.
Any comments would be appreciated, including current views on Burlen quality, which was noted in V8Note 410.
