Just dug a bit deeper into the problem and it looks like a carb problem, only one of the inlets open when the throttle is put on compared to the other engine where all three open nicely, don't know yet what this means or where the problem is comeing from but i have something to work on now, will try and post some pictures later to show exactly what i mean, if not i will try and explain myself a bit better, cheers, Tim

Hi all, problem solved i'm pleased to say, it was a broken carburetter link ball that just snaps over a small metal ball which in turn activates all three carbs in synch, sorted! now i'm chuffed to bits
