Triumph TR6 - TR6 WILL STOP WHEN ITS HOT
|TR6 IT RUNS WELL AND THAN STOPS.|
ENGINE WILL CRANK BUT DOENT START.
WHEN IT COOLS DOWN IT WILL START STRAIGHTWAY.
|SOUNDS LIKE CLASSIC VAPOR LOCK, PETER! YOU MAY NEED TO PUT SLEEVE INSULATION AROUND THE LINE WHERE IT'S CLOSE TO THE BLOCK!|
|Weak fuel pump possibly - membrane getting ready to go.|
|When it's stopped pull a plug and check for spark. |
That will narrow down somewhat. Likely gas but have seen the odd coil or condensor doing funny things. Moisture in the cap?
|Brent, BE NICE!!!!|
|along with Bill's comment...|
Electronic and electrical components change value when heated.
What about the ignition coil? Sometimes they can overheat, particualrly Lucas coils!
