Scimitar SE5a starting issues

Peter, what type of electric fuel pump would you recommend ? I am thinking of fitting one but using it exclusivly, ie taking out the mechanical one.
The car is a GTC '84 and it starts perfectly at the first successful ignition but only after a lot of cranking after standing for a day or two.

Cologne Engine

2.8 Cologne engine wanted for rebuild. As complete as possible please but I could manage with out alternator, PAS pump, carb and, at a pinch, starter.
Old and worn out is OK but must be recondition-able.

Multi switch (Head/dip lights, indicator, horn)

Can I ask PlasticMan if he knows of a special tool or technique to remove the pins from the 9 pin plug that mates with the SE6 / SE8 loom.
I too am trying to recover from failure of the Lights / horn multiswitch. Some wires may need to be moved about.
