Rerouted fuel line across fan cowling too carb from pump, running great until I'm in slow traffic, then it's cutting out. Having to restart, any ideas please?

Could be running a little lean. Try turning the mixture scree out a quarter turn

Did that panky, cheers, running smoother, the pump is pumping well, but sometimes the fuel is very slow going into the online filter, which in my opinion is a little bit large, could that be an issue, checked fuel line, no leaks

It could be that the filter is acting as a heat sink and getting vapor locked. Try it on the inlet to the pump as low down as possible and yes try a smaller one too.
