Had a great time there again, and i'll add to the list of folk who thought the paddock was much much better.

Many thanks to all those who do the organising behind the scenes, + Robbie for loan of air pump, Matt for the tea station, and Alan N for his time and advice.
A friendly welcoming bunch as always, and some stunning vans on show. Have come home with lots of ideas :)

Still didn't get chance to talk/meet all those who i wanted to though..

Excellent :)

Amazing how such a small thing can cause so many problems - and how akward it can be to diagnose!

For those who wern't there. The van was intermittantly cutting out at speed - but was able to restart straight away.

Looked at numerous things, rotor arm, leads, cap, HT leads, coil etc & when we put it back together it wouldn't start. Tweaking wiring and checking everything was back on - it all came back to life. When running I touched the coil and it stopped... It turns out one of the connections to the coil was poor and when warmed up broke contact and failed... put a new end on and it came back to life
