The 3.5 Rover in my Capri is playing up royally and I'm completely stumped.
It had some intermittent stalling a while ago, but I put that down to a loose battery connection (now fixed).
Took it for it's first proper run to a meet last Sunday.
It ran great.
Fired it up during the meet and it idled nicely for a couple of minutes, then just stalled.
After that, it would start and die instantly. With a bit of throttle, it would stay running, but seemed really lumpy and misfiring. Stalled at every junction and just cut out even when driving (on A roads)....but sometimes just picked back up when moving... which was pretty terrifying.
I'm just completely stumped.
It's running a two barrel Solex. I was hoping it was the coil, so popped a spare one in today, with no joy.
Before the meet on Sunday, I had tried to improve the crankcase breathing on it and had tied the rocker cover breathers into the inlet manifold. That was the only change I'd made before the meet on Sunday and I've now removed the piping and just returned them to venting to atmosphere. I can't see how that would cause the running problems, especially as it's all back to how it was before.
I have no idea where to go with this now.....Can anyone help at all?
