Shutting the drivers shin bin is difficult - not obvious whats causing it. Anybody have a pic of what the bulkhead should look like there please?

Fixed - a little relocation of the speedo cable required.

My injection loom has damaged insulation on all 3 wires into the TPS, so I want to pull the pins, fit some shrink wrap . I have the correct (I believe?) tubular tool to push the barbs in to release the female pins, but cannot get them to move at all. I think I can feel the barbs when I push the tube in, then the tool seems to bottom, pin wont come out. Tried turning the tool, pushing the pin inwards from the back then gently inserting tool, no good.
Is there a trick to removing these please?
thanks

Back to the carbs.... Starts OK, runs a bit uneven, sort of like a misfire, but not quite like a bad plug or lead. Managed a couple of runs around the block, but with some burps coccasionally. Plugs were sooty, but not fouled, probably due to idling as I manoeuvre into the garage. Cleaned them. Back to basics - reset the jets per the book. Found it quite hard to detect when the jet hit the vertical piece beside the needle, even with very good lighting in there. Finally chose a spot just back from where I could detect the jet moving down a tiny bit, then 2.5 turns in. Starts, but runs a bit uneven, hopefully due to being cold- cant run it much before the smoke detector goes off, and its wet outside today. With better weather will get it out and run it up to temp and see hoe it feels.
Another odd observation - while running yesterday I could see 8-10mm of fuel in the filter, but when I checked after shutdown the filter was full...???

Finally got back to carbs. Runs best with an extra 1/4 turn rich. Drives OK, but Innovate says its still lean. Will try a bit more richness. There was a page here with a process for setting HIF6 mixture, but cant find it now?? Adjusted fast idle up some - a bit too far, need to back it off a bit. Where was that bent 1/4 spanner again? Might have to make one - easier than taking the elbows off each time.

There are 2 holes in the front slam panel on each side - are these functional - designed to allow air through to the engine, or ??? Strikes me they allow air to avoid going through the radiator, doing something useful for temperature. Down here in Oz the more air that goes through the rad the better.
