  15. A common problem of vehicles dying in warm weather, no one ever thinks to check the position of the exhaust manifold hot spot, it probably is set in the Winter position so in summer overheats the inlet manifold and causes vapour locks, they often can be difficult to reset as they seize up in the manifold

  22. the chassis number looks to be correct, expand the picture and the number starts GPW, it should be prefixed with a star symbol which is hidden under the wing panel mount
