In the last couple of days the 1600 engine in my bay seems to be running shite...Not only does it cut out when you pull at r/bouts etc, it also seems to pick up badly when accelerating especialy 2nd and 3rd. It sort of farts and judders then picks up...I'm not sure whether I need a de-icing unit or what..Any help appreciatted..

Time for a tune-up. Mine did the farty thing in 2nd and 3rd and the cutting out - also check if your autochoke's working.

make sure when its cold and you operate the throttle it closes (take of the airfillter and look down the venture) and after a few mins running it should open slowly

hope that helps :wink:

also check points leads dizzy cap router arm coil and also valve gap as all could contribute to the prob
