    Funnily enough I've encountered a simular problem with one of these after suspected contaminated fuel being used. If the fuel level fell below about half way it started to have this problem but if it is kept topped right up it starts fine.

    Also, check the fuel filter is not full of water, you can life the filter out and there is a small screw on the bottom to drain out any water.

    Best thing is drain and flush tank could be anything, might even be an air leak somewhere. I don't think it is that serious that I would get rid of it.
    Years ago (ABOUT 30) I had a similar problem with my Mk11 Ford Escort, believe it or not somehow a small poly bag l(ike the one you get a small pack of screws in) had worked its way into the carburettor and blocked the outlet jet. Never did find out how it got there.
