Bloody hell stu, I would not have thought the loom would do that! Cheers for that info, not too dear to replace either. I may well take you up on your offer in the near future.
Sods law tho', the fault is not there anymore! Ran it in a test tank, in gear at 2000rpm or so, for an about an hour and the prob did not return. It ran as sweet as a nut and I had to stop it in the end as the tank water was getting very warm! The only thing I did find was that the flywheel had worn through one of the crank position sensor wires, so I repaired and re-routed that. I dis-connected that as a test and the motor ran a little rough but not too bad. I also put the bare wire to earth to see if it created the fault but i didn't so no luck there anyway.
Couple of things I am not sure of:
Why does my motor have a crank position sensor?
Is it to govern the timing of the spark as the motor only appears to have one pulsar coil not three as I expected?
Does my motor have a high and low speed charge coils as there are only 2 wires (brown & blue) when I was expecting three, unless it grounds through the motor?
Why do the lighting coils have a red link wire between them as none of this really corresponds to the schematic (seloc manual) I have?
