Summary

The aircraft lost power shortly after takeoff. A successful forced landing was made in a field adjacent to the strip. An inspection of the aircraft disclosed that a hose directing cooling air to the fuel injector manifold was kinked restricting the amount of cooling air available at the manifold. It is suspected that the manifold overheated and vapourised the fuel causing the loss of power experienced by the pilot.
