Question about Cars & Trucks
A mechanic cleared the fuel feeds and it started and went okay. Now it has been left for a few days it won't start. I changed to better petrol as advised as the low octane fuel appeared to clog the fuel ways.

SOURCE: Acts like vapor lock
when they went to fuel injection the fuel that was not used returned to the tank thus cooling the fuel and ending vapor lock, my question is did you do a fuel pressure test? and di you do a fuel leak down test? and the first thing I would do is change the fuel filter. with ethanol in the gas it kills the filter. I have to replace mine every three months they just plug up from that junk. Other than that the only other thing would be a coil breaking down when it gets hot the coil shorts out when cool it starts so check those things first. be sure fuel pressure is 50 to 60 PSI and does not drop below 30 PSI for at least a minute, if it does the fuel pump check valve is bad, also the fuel sock could be bad as well.

sounds like your engine is on its last leg. have you checked you push rods the could be bent usually due to over heating or a rocker arm is bad and valves sticking, or timing is wrong

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and can be reached by removing the back seat.

Just checking, but did you install it with the arrow pointing to the engine? Take it off and try blowing through it, if you can't then it's plugged up and you need to get another. If you can blow through it, then it's something else.
