Not sure if it is early or not, all I know is the year is 1999.

Stator, also not sure if it is red or not yet as I have not even lifted the hood as yet, I should know this weekend as I am returning armed with tools and information to check it all out, I have been quoted 182 for a new stator, so not as scary as some prices I have heard.

It has just had a new set of plugs, but I will change them anyway, if that's not the problem at least I will have a spare set on board

Guys, just wanted to say thanks for all the input, mixed opinions on the problem, and most of you have come up with the items I had under suspicion. You have all been very helpful, thank you.

Feel free to keep the suggestions coming, I am going to strip it on Saturday/Sunday, so good to know what I need to look at and what to take with me.

Robert.

Just as a thought there was a problem with the earths on the earlier obms, that were supplied to the R.N.L.I. we then as a part of the build all earths were dis-connected checked, cleaned to bright metal and refitted then sealed with liquid neoprene
