Wrenches for the AB shift cables YES

Power Steering hose from oil tank to pump end? NO

A/C hose? the V implies it gets aligned somewhere. But you're right this time it is part of an A/C hose

The clamp / alignment bracket? I don't know.

Well done! It was a rubbish picture, too. I've done about 8,000 miles without it so I'm convinced it's not important :)

Two pages from the 1995 issue of the spare parts list
Two gear cable spanners
Part of the hose from the aircon condenser to the lower port on the aircon compressor
The bracket for mounting the boost control solenoid valve to the metal bracket fixing the air cleaner housing to the longeron
An unused bracket designed to randomly injure. It's fitted to the upper edge of the gearbox casing above the LH inner tripod joint and just outboard of the gear cable ends


Edit

Bugger I'm too late!


Is that really the coolant pump bracket?

See 46.01 in the parts book Item 62.

Good work, I was being cheeky with the coolant pump bracket it IS a coolant pump bracket but for a Jabsco pump ex-Us. The standard one is normally bzp finish..

Gas breather @ gas tank.... yep
Rear stabilizer bar... No
Heated seat controler????????... Ummmmm... yes it is, but why's it quirky or where is it fitted as standard ?

Gas breather @ gas tank.... yep

Actually that is the Roll-Over Valve. It is in the vent line to prevent fuel from leaking if the car overturns.

It is very interesting to see the differences in the SE between the prototypes and the FED version.

It is part of the vent line that goes from the tank to the charcoal canister. It is NOT a vent. If the vent line went directly to the canister and the car overturned, the fuel would empty into the cockpit which is not desirable. The Roll-Over Valve is designed to shut off so nothing can get past it if it isn't right side up.
