    Vauxhall Bedford Opel Association annual show. Used to be at Billing but is now the other (your) side of Northampton at Sywell airfield. I would think we'll get 20 Mk2s there next year.

    That looks really nice. You put a lot of work into it. You clearly know what you are doing. Is the red cable across the back for audio system? How did you find us?

    Smart install from the photo. Did you do it? Why off the road for so long? My questions were after info as to whether it could be a vacuum build up in the tank restricting fuel supply when used for a while. Or when starting, if the pressure in the petrol header manifold had dropped and needed some pump action to get it up before it would fire. I have an XE'd Mk3.

    Have you tried running it with the petrol cap off, to check the tank breather is clear? On starting, do you turn it on, wait a mo, then start or go for it straight off?

    Welcome to the site. Its a bit slow around here. Where are you and how about a few more pictures? Good looking car. Fault sounds heat related, something expanding and letting air in. Are the vacuum hoses solid and the inlet manifold OK? No air leak between the AFM and the throttle body?

    Heated seat. Under the rotary light switch there are two switches plus a blanking plate. That unused position is for the heated seat switch. I have it fitted and used for another purpose, it needs a relay.

    Injection cars have two 8mm fuel pipes, flow and return, as the whole system is pressurised. Use modern plastic pipe.There is a 14mm flexi feed pipe from tank to pump. But, if I was you I would be putting in a late Vectra A tank with internal pump. Much simpler pipework and should be easier to find but must be a 2.0 pump not 1.8. Needs an access hole in the floorpan under the rear seat (round plastic cover needed too) and a pump electrical connector there. If you are going to use E10 petrol seal the inside of the tank before it goes in and use E10 safe pipework (no steel). Another reason for the Vectra tank is the petrol gauge sender. Mk2 injection versions are hens teeth selling, if you can get one, for £150+ or 180 Euro out of Germany.

    Yes, 20SEH is the GM name for the engine, it is in the SRi 130 here, as well as early Vectra A/Astra etc so it was fairly common. The 115bhp version is the 20NE or 18SE. If you plan on fitting the injection engine as phase 2 make sure you plumb in two fuel lines from the start. Oh, and fit the front brakes from a 2.0 Vectra A as well.

    Welcome to the site. Don't forget we need photos Sounds like you get as much rust on Malta as we do here? How bad is it? Quite an early coil-over conversion on your car.
