Hello there Robin -

Thank you for your reply and info..

You haven't said Robin - re "full vehicle details " as I asked for - I do need to know whether this is petrol or diesel -

Also - can you tell me - when you try to start it now -is the engine starting...and seeming to run ok - fine... but only runs for a few secs .... doing this every / all the time?

Kind Rgds, MIKE......................................
