Bedford Rascal Help Needed. Please. - pawlatta
I have a 1987 Bedford Rascal van and am having problems with starting in the wet.
When starting the engine will fire up but then just die straight away. Then to try and restart it will take more cranking but then die again. this will normal happen three or four times before it starts properly, each time it requires more cranking.

Then once I pull away there seems to be no power there in first and second gears. This problem seems to sort itself out after the initial moving off and it seems to run fine from then on.

I dont know whether this is all part of one problem or they are two seperate problems?.

I have set the points and the timing and cannot see any loose connections anywhere on the ignition circuit.

Now I need some ideas for other possible causes. Please.
