The  heater issue is probably nothing more than  a slightly kinked stiff 
wire. With a/cc setup does the control still directly link up to the 
shut-offf valve on the heater hose behind the engine head? If so then 
limited travel isdown to lube, or clip on the cable outer on that valve not 
set up correctly.
Remember to take some snaps on the above trip ;o)
