When I left Brizzle last weekend the bug played up, did the same this morning (haven't used it in between).
When I put my foot down a bit (not ragging it) it looses power, a bit more and it moves. Once warm I didn't notice any problems.
Advice please.
Cheers.

Fitted new points, dizzy and rotor arm tonight, so hopefully that will sort this out. Cheers for having a gander G, I'll be down Saturday, what times best?
Also fitted a fuel filter and ran the car to check for leaks, when searching for leaks I put my hand behind the dizzy, it gave me a buzz, spotted the wire connecting the dizzy to the coil is slightly exposed, will this matter? should I get it sorted?

Sweet. Cheers.
Drove to work in her today, she played up a bit at the start again though .
Hoping that was coz I fitted the new filter, ran fine by the time I got to Barnwood road.
Can only see a trickle of petrol in the filter, swear it used to be more than that in my old Golf.
Sorry bout being a cunt but i've gotta learn somehow
