    I have had a starting problem with the van I put it down to a air lock somewhere in the system any way
    we have made the bich work today.
    Probably the hardest it's worked from the rebuild we have ben up in the peck district up and down some very steep hills.
    On one particular very long up hill run there seemed to be a increase in power half way up.
    after the engine seemed to change tone for no reason engine fart.
    well we stopped for three hrs to go for a walk and was ready for the long crank to start the engine
    it started virtually right away.
    dismissing it as a one off got on our merry way we stopped me and the weeman went off to play a round of golf.
    Engine cooled right down the wife wanted to park so we can have the BBQ out started the engine first turn it fired up and very lital smoke.
    Will se what the bich is like in the morning

    Odd, maybe one of the cylinders wasn't pulling its weight? Injector or pump or perhaps a valve sticking or not sealing properly? But if it's now working - great!

    @DBK I think it was the NRV on the lift pump as it was hard to crank the fuel up think it was running back and the system wasn't staying pressurised
