XF xflow barely running
Hi, i was driving my xf ute back from, work and all of a sudden the secondaries just had no power and the carby was making a sort of fluffing sound, the carby had just been recod a few months ago...you could floor it and nothing would happen, it gradually got worse until it just kept stalling and then wouldnt kick at all..
the next day i tried starting it and then it kicked over, but ran a little rough, so i took it around the block, and then all of a sudden, it did it again.. it then overheaded bad, but no bubbles in radiator, water out exhaust etc..
so then i grabbed a new head i had laying around and did the head, all gaskets etc..
kicked it over and it started fine again.. then took it for a run and same problem!, with the fluffing sound im guessing it could be a timing chain, distributor problem? any ideas theories i would greatly appreciate before i pull the bastard apart again, i need to get to work!
