  1. mine is the same. it dosn't start when its hot but if I give it full throttle its fine.I think its because the fuel in the carb sort of evaporates because its so hot in the back.I can only put it down to this as I have checked every thing and its always been the same Mark

  13. Firstly hi .. I would take the spark plugs out and then try to turn the engine over by hand(Not by the starter motor.)If their has been water in the engine all that time it may have rusted the water pump.But If all is turning ok then you will need to put a new cam belt on and I would put some new oil and filter ,also drain the coolant out and renew. If it doesnt turn over it will need to come apart ,good luck and hope it all goes well Mark

  15. Simon I was working for 22 years for different people driving swingshovels and got totally pi--ed off with working for idiots.I just sat down and thought about what I could do,and desided to follow my gut feeling.Ive now been working for my self as a profesional wall and floor tiler for three years and its the best move I have made. Its slow and hard work to start with but very rewarding.Make sure you get public liability insurance its about 140 quid and covers you for about 2000,000. just go for it and the very best of luck kind regards Mark
