I seam to have a small fuel leak between the tank and the petrol tap. I'm I right in thinking that there is a fibre washer that most likely needs replacing or is it the tap itself ? Many thanks

Most of the new fuel taps are self sealing and do not have fibre washers, however if yours is original it may well be the washer.

Sorry about the last post, I did not see your second post and for some strange reason I could neither edit or delete the post.

Thanks for the welcomes and replies, and apologies for listing this under the wrong topic. Thanks Tractorman, I think mine is original, I suppose there's only one way to find out. Thanks again.
