Right hears for anyone who wants to give me a few ideas of WTF is wrong with my Dolly?
Right I thought it would be a good idea to sort out the missfire, compression was good, so new HT leads, Lumenition Optical MS4 and coil was brought and installed, and wired direct to the live feed of the fuse box making the original wiring redundant. A new WOSP starter motor was installed much better but I've still not got round to rewiring in the hot start wire, I do have the one way diode wire, just haven't got round to installing it.
New fuel pump, new fuel lines. Solved the fuel smell was a rubber washer missing from the sender unit in the petrol tank. And now nothing but problems!
Give it full throttle to accelerate onto the duel carriageway or someone like that and forget it it dies and wont start up again until its ice cold the next day.
Hi Steve, A couple of things come to mind. I think you need to to run that coil with its ballast resistor.

It doesn't actually say that you have to have the ballast resistor but it is shown as being supplied with one. So my reckoning is that it needs it. Does the coil run hot ?
Can you measure its d.c. resistance please when cold.
Can you put up a diagram of this "diode mod" please ?
When it stops running if you go round to the fuel cap at the back and remove it do you get a shloooop sound of sucking in air ?
Does the rev; counter drop to zero when the engine dies as the car runs down ? If so I'd suspect L.T. ignition electrics.
Or does the rev; counter bounce all over the place ?
