6a turns over, fires up and stops when key is let go

Not really relevant but fixing a similar fault was one of the practical tests at my interview to become an AA patrol.

Se5a air intake

ISTR Edd China on Wheeler Dealers holding a small piece of cloth or tissue near a leaky joint to trace a leak. Held it at one end with pliers and it flapped about in the gas flow!!

With its rubber and without. It reminds me of the hatchback frame, might be the same profile used?

Opening Side Rear Windows?

Are these any help? Yes the glass is the same. Could only photograph one end at a time due to holding it in place against the 6a!

Fuel pump - new mechanical or electric?
