Head scratcher.

What are you hopeing to find by pulling the heads off ? If you have good compression the valves and rings would appear to be ok..Try pulling different plug leads off first to see if its the same cylinders not fireing every time you start it.Which Rapier have you ?

Running out of fuel with half a tank

Has it always done this , if not i'm guessing you had a short bit of flexible fuel pipe with a floating filter on the end which has fallen off the metal pick up pipe....have a look in the tank with a torch..
