    Brilliant, cheers Kev i'll head down the motor factors on Saturday and pick up some new plugs. Hopefully that will help things further.

    Nope totally wrong They use L88Y or L92Y , one replaced the other to cure a high speed misfire but I can never remember which way round...oops .

    BPR5ES are N9Y equivalents ( approc 1/4 inch longer on thread than L specs ) though I think most use BPR6ES in the later Rovers?

    Question stil stands re plugs by the way. Common mistake is that if you have a P6 enine and go to teh factors for new plugs. You get given SD1 plugs,because P6 isn't listed ....totally different heat , length , style etc .
    Now you're just6 showing off and bragging Kev, hogging all the obscure problems for yourself,

    Hi guys,

    cheers for all the help and pointers!

    Had a go at it again this morning went back to basics to find a level to work from and found that it was me being a numpty and when I changed the regulator to a fuel king one I didn't reset the float levels from the old regulator despite having it at the same psi ....readjusted and is now running a treat!

    Will check plugs in a few weeks to see if its running lean/rich

    Thanks again guys!

    What kind of ignition sysytem? It sounds electrical and maybe the colder weather is throwing your line of thought?
