Hi all, GB164 has recently become a bugger to start, in the 17 years I've had her she has always turned over a couple of times and then roared in to action.
Just had a full service, new plugs and leads etc still no better.
Don't know if it is related but I used to be able to run her till the fuel gauge was a fraction above empty but she now starts spluttering when the needle is just in to the red.
Where should I start looking?
Many Thanks
Ross

Mine had the same issue, worse if it was hot and it turned out to be the Air Flow Meter. Expensive to replace but solved the issue and improved the fuel consumption
