Is the tango and orange juice on the table just a coincidence?

No lol. I emailed Britvic about getting some decals and they said they have none! So a friend said she could make some for me...

And that bloody stutter came back today at about 50 in 4th. Backed off and then she flew again...I'm going to change the rotor arm. Failing that I think it might be the coil on the fritz. OR...the new HT leads?

Fuel starvation maybe?

Does the car bog down on power or just go lumpy?

Can you rev through It?

Cheers Robbie! It just bogs down, I back off the loud pedal and back on and she's fine...

Maybe a little less as I have been trying to keep the engine cool...so less welly. It only does it in the afternoon on one stretch of bypass at about 40-50. Bloody odd.

Good news on the cheap fix which I thought you may have already done.
but
Selfishly disappointed as I really want to see how the Vitara radiator goes in. Hope you still have a bash at it.
