  1. Can anyone. Our Mk2 Ford Escort 1600. Broke down and had to be rescued on our return from Hempstead event

    Problem is car started to back fire. Ran rough for a couple of miles then stopped. Recovery man suggested fuel starvation 

    Our normal repair guy has tried to repair by changing to New fuel pump , new carb and checked for vacuum from to carb. Checked spark at points and plug. Checked the timing 
    Any suggestions as to cause
    Plus can you recommend another classic car garage with Ford experience to assist us to get the car running again

    Thanks in advance Steve and Mark Mark Peter Bradley

      Hello Steve could be some kind of wiring issue broken down but first I would change the coil because they have a funny habit of coming back to life when cold and misbehaving I had this recently and it went on for awhile still had good spark but just wouldn’t run very well change the coil perfect again would be worth trying first ,as for someone in Norfolk area I wouldn’t know but I’m sure someone else will advise and have some more ideas
