Hi!
RHD 1976, It’s no power to fuelpump. I have check fuses under the steering Wheel, but they seems to be ok.
Any suggestions?

On my Silver Shadow 11 (1979) the fuel pump is wired through the oil pressure switch at the front of the engine in the oil filter housing. This is a safety device that cuts off electrical supply to the fuel pump in the event of a drop in engine oil pressure. I'm not sure if same was fitted in 1976 but if it is the case it's possible that your oil pressure switch is stuck closed and not allowing voltage to be sent to the fuel pump. Try disconnecting the wire at the oil pressure switch and see if the fuel pump works then. If the fuel pump now works you oil pressure switch needs to be replaced.
