Re: stoopid bloody thing

Can you hear the fuel pump kick over when the key is energised?
Try it anyway but give the Fuel Reg a decent tap with a spanner..
On cold nights, sometimes condensation sets inside the reg diaphragm, making it stick somewhat..

Re: stoopid bloody thing

Pretty sure its your fuel pump, had same problem with a NF Fairlane... It was probably getting harder and harder to start prior to it not been able to start at all?
