Ride: AU1 XR8 Ute, EL Fairmont

Location: Broadford
VIC, Australia


I have recently put a new motor in my EL, reco bottom end, balanced, new distributor / module, new plugs, new temp sender and oil pressure switch.

It has been timed and run in, but went for a short drive in it on friday, it stopped, and has not started again, smells very fuely from the exhaust, checked the spark, was fine.

Some sort of sensor, maybe? any ideas?

This happened once when i was runnng the motor in, left it for a day, checked and adjusted the timing and it had run fine since.

Any help would be appreciated.
