Bizzare!
Just went out checked the lines etc everything seemed okay, started her and primed her, she stalled, started again primed for a bit and she ran fine so i thought... fuel pump diaphragm but stopped priming she ran fine.
High rpm... fine, in gear... fine, in gear high rpm... fine.
Only iffy thing was the tell tale took a while to run through but then i have only got one sided muffs on and had a play and got it pumping.

Now all i did yesterday was took the fuel pump cover off and the bottom carb off, drained the carbs and thats about it.

you may have dislodged the crud that was causing the problem, you need to try it under normal operating conditions to be sure though.

I probably wont be able to test it for a couple of weeks now but will at first chance.
I had the carbs off and gave them a real good clean. The fuel pump was fine and no build up or anything in the carbs.
Getting some new plugs when i get chance and will see how she goes when i take her out next.

She seems fine now, i think either water or crud in the carbs.
Thanks for the help guys.
