Thanks for all the information it’s really great to see and hear from others who have these old lovely cars as sometimes I get very frustrated and wonder why i do it, but as we know it’s because we love these old cars.
I have another issue I was hoping someone has seen before.
The car starts fine also it may take a few goes as the cold start valve only comes on for a second but this is ok, now if I warm the car up then stop it after 10 mins and try to start it again it starts but then dies right away.
I have checked the cold Thermostat on top of the MFI pump and this gradually shuts really nicely over time. There also is a new fuel pump installed as well as new plug leads and distributor.
I have read about the fuel in the lines evaporating and this is what causes the car to not to start could anybody please shed some light on this matter As it is frustrating the hell out of me.
