A couple of weeks ago we took Sofia on a Club run. We covered 260km in the day and she ran like a top. We were 2 up and had an awesome day. The next morning I got her out to take to work and she went from the garage to the front gate and stopped - and wouldn't restart. She occasionally fired and ran briefly but refused to run consistently. So, I took Francesca to work and came home to take the carburettor apart, the problem certainly appeared to be fuel related. I found nothing obvious in the carb so put it back in and started her up and she ran for a while so I put her away for the next time. On the Wednesday we went through the same problem, so I later checked that the fuel pump was pumping, and therefore the fuel tap was opening. I couldn't get her to start and run so I took her to the shop. They have had her for about 2 weeks and couldn't get her to fault. They had taken the carburettor completely apart in case I had missed something, and they checked the float was indeed floating etc. The SAS is already disabled so they sent me a note to say she was ready. The technician started her up and rode her around to the trailer ramp, then used the motor to power her gently up on to the trailer. All the time the engine was running until she was up against the chock and we started tying her down. He then turned her off.
So, at home I started her once she was off the trailer and went to move her to the garage and she hesitated, then stopped. I restarted her and with very gentle application of the throttle I got her to move right up to the garage, less than 20 metres, and she died and wouldn't start again. I rang the shop and they are as confused as I am, they need her back obviously. I went out later and she started, idled briefly then stopped and wouldn't restart.
What gives? - Go!
