1: Search, you need to re-adjust the regulator and Lubricate the bailey channels.
2: Replace rotors. and use Bendix Ultimates, NOT CT's
3: Replace Fuel filter, air filter and sparkplugs, possible cat blockage too.
4: Remove centre console buttons and examine all plugs and switches themselves. Also if your capable dissect the rear switches, clean, file contacts and re grease and re-assemble.

Hey mate.

What model is it first?

Mine has a slow drivers mech. Found out it has cracked the top plastic roller and the cable is grinding into it.
When the windows all the way down have a look with the door trim off the door and you'll see from the top if that's gone, or pull it out and inspect.

Did you get the rotors machined at a mechanics? Did it start after they worked on it? If not it's a tricky one. Usually with wheel bearings being stuffed it wobbles until the brakes are applied...

Idling rough I'd say same with checking ignition stuff, cap, leads etc. I was stumped by a rough idle untill I rechecked the leads and found genius me had put 3 and 4 on backwards...

With the switches if it's a E series, or N, I have 2 rear switches.
