My BA six is hunting quite badly, so much so it almost stalls and on cold start sometimes does.
recently i changed the intake manifold gasket and that helped abit, but the problem is getting worse..
Could it be caused by dodgy plugs or coils??

Any help would be appreciated.

Thats not particularly good advice there wild_cleveland. As per the OP, it could very well be plugs, leads or the coil pack, though Id be starting with cleaning the ISC and throttle body first. If that doesnt fix it, then do plugs, coil and leads.

About 1/3rd the way down.

And if you knew anything about the BA, they don't have leads, coil on plug ignition, so 6 coils, mounted where leads normally go
