Where to begin.. Basically, I bought the car from Leeds just before Christmas. I needed a bit of work doing cosmetically but other than that ran fine. Drove it back up to Middlesbrough and then from there down back home to London a few days later with everything running fine. Worked fine until new years day when I was due to travel back to Middlesbrough when all of a sudden everything went tits up.
I started losing a lot of power when driving with it randomly fading in and out. I read through the forums and decided to change the dizzy cap and also discovered that the accelerator cable had come off of the lever arm bit of the Weber carb. After changing that and the HT leads it was still struggling to start and most of the time not at all. It wouldn't sit at idle and I've never got it close leaving my drive. It then started making funny noises and eventually stopped working altogether. Now after getting the start motor changed I'm still not able to get it started. It's turning over without the noise but now wont fire up at all.
Running out of ideas completely now, I'm only able to get home from the north some weekends where ever lifts are possible because I refuse to pay over £100 for a train ticket.
Everything I've tried seems to lead to something else breaking or just not fixing it at all. Thanks in advance.
