Thank you, Gasman, for your kind words about the banner I made for you (other corners and paint colours are available...)

Job completed with everything back in the car and fully functional. So, in summary, the fuel tank has been cleaned out and sealed. A new genuine BL NOS sender unit with new genuine BL pump has been fitted. All rubber piping up to the carburettors has been renewed although steel piping remains. Yet another new fuel filter put in (the old one had more crud in it than I had thought from casual visual inspection). The fuel pump relay has been swapped and a new oil pressure sensor fitted. I'm not sure there is anything else to change in the fuel delivery department so I am hoping this will cure the problem. Time will tell.

Whilst I was at it I've changed the oil & oil filter and also the antifreeze so should be all set for while (although there's always something....)

I shall have to do exactly the same thing to make my Princess go...could you give me spare parts number for the sender unit and fuel pump ? I think, I shall replace all the steel - piping by copper ones...they will outlast me then.
