Hi there,

The filter is under the car L/H front sill near the bell housing, the pump is in tank, remove the L/h rear wheel to access it, it is in the side of the tank, just mark both fuel lines and get a new seal as the old seal will be unusable when removed.

Hi there,

this is actually an injector its called center point, it looks like a carby, I would check for vacuum leaks at the manifold and at the base of the injector body.

Hi there,

Have the radiator cleaned by a radiator specialist as they tend to get part blocked up with casting sand from the block, this is quite common, also replace the thermostat.
