At long last today I managed to fit the clip. There wasn't one fitted when I first took the filter out of the tank, though the filter didn't appear to be coming apart. I didn't take it apart either, so it may be dirty inside, but having now had it out, I'm happy that I can do it again and strip it further if necessary.
Car started ok, but having not been used since about 10.00, time now about 1845. We'll see if it makes any difference to starting (overnight from cold) in the next few days.
Had a struggle getting the filter back in though. The seal around the filter body wouldn't allow the filter to sit low enough for the large retainer ring to start its thread. However, gently feeding it into place, within the other seal on the floorpan, then lowering the filter in did the trick.

The seal should be fitted as in thread number 13 (from Brian) as below:-

Sounds like you may have sorted it now.

And the right way up if it's been taken off.
You should be able to start screwing down the retaining collar by hand and finish the tightening using a light hammer and drift.

Yes, I managed to get it re-assembled ok thanks.
However, I've tried to start it first time in the morning over the last couple of days, and it really is no better. So, what now, do I check the pressure at the schrader valve? What can I use? I have a mechanical tyre pressure gauge, is that ok?
Assuming I test it and it is ok, that then takes us back to my original thoughts about sensors. Not using the car last week, I tried it around midday on Wed and was pleasantly surprised that it started almost immediately. It hadn't been used since Mon morning, so should be cold. However it was a quite warm day on Wed and I did wonder if it was temperature related? It does seem ok during the day, just the early morning cold start takes a while.
I'm jumping ahead too far with that though. I need to check that fuel pressure.
Also, how on earth do you get the rear seat cushion clipped back into the rear clips? I've got the front ones in but not the backones.

An old style mechanical gauge will work, but needs care. Clearly, you have to avoid misplacing the connector and gettng a faceful of petrol spray. The ideal way is a dial gauge with a flexi connector that screws onto the Schrader valve. There's a thread showing this somewhere in these annals. However it's done, you need to see 50psi or more when your assistant turns on the ignition.


To manipulate the rear seat cushion, I made a special tool that makes it easy (easier anyway). See (scroll down to Post 3): https://www.the75andztclub.co.uk/for....php?p=2531165
