thanks for the info Leslie.

starting problem - from cold, requires x2-x4 turns of ignition before engaging and starting. More than usual exhaust smoke when starting and quite spluttery. Once started and used for quick drive, no problems, turn off engine and try to restart the problems is much worse, car will not start for x10+ turns of ignition, requiring revs to get car started. Replaced spark plugs and battery with new, removed any potential water from petrol tank - but problem still persists.
Any ideas welcome
Thanks,
