I have an intermittant problem with my 350 SL. After approx 20 miles the engine dies. After 24 hours approx the engine will start again and repeat the process (i.e. die after a 20 mile run).

The fuel pump buzzes when the ignition is switched on every time so I presume it is continually working.

I have replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs and contact breaker points. The ignition system tests as OK.

Any ideas.
