There are a number of things you can do. 1) If you have, or can acquire, a turn signal control box - do so. These were used on nearly every British car ever made. They tend to be expensive in the US

The standard Lucas fuel pump shuts off as the result of back pressure from the engine side. Once pressure builds up, the diaphram is held in the uppermost position and cannot drop to close the points

Don't mean to be picky about such things, but do you mean TC or TD? TCs were made until late 1949, which would make a 51 TC a difficult proposition. Granted, some of the states in the US registered v
