What are your thoughts?
Provided you have cleaned all the rust and crud out of the tank it shouldn't need it. Is there a gauze on the tap/tank fitting anyway?

If your tank is fitted with Ewarts tap you can get new filters..

I had one fitted to a C12 when I got it, I don't think it looks very good?, I will replace it with a straight pipe as the tap has a filter.

Agreed! That just looks wrong.
Anyone know where to get the gauze filters that sit around the banjo bolt?

Villiers services have the correct one for the C12 (part No. V404) - link

Well, mine is all back together at last and looking good ! One broken tappet / cam follower was the cause of it's initial failure and it took an awful lot of work to get at it. Villiers Spares supplied the part and now it is ready to go once I put fuel and oil in it. Before I do, anybody got any idea what spark plug should be fitted ? It came with an NKG resistive plug but the spark is weak with this. I tried an ordinary short reach non resistive plug from my Morris 8 and that gives a good spark but it's not the right one.

The handbook recommends a Champion N8 link to N8 equivalents I have a Champion N5C for my F15

Edit: found there's still a few NOS N8 about - link
