Hi all.

Took my 80 Series (24V petrol & LPG, 1996) off the road a couple of years ago to carry out some much needed restoration.

Came to move it a few months back with a view to putting it in the workshop to start the work. Probably hadn't been running for maybe 6 or 9 months prior to that, but it was running fine when last started. This time, however, it would start and then cut out after a couple of seconds, it would do this repeatedly, until eventually it wouldn't start at all. Leave it for a while, and then it would go through the same cycle.

I tried the emergency override to start directly on gas (this gas system has a feature that if you floor the throttle, it will start directly on gas instead of first starting on petrol before switching to gas after a short period), but that got similar results, which I guess rules out some elements of the fuel system.

I should add that, for the couple of seconds it does run, it sounds smooth and normal, just like a normal cold start. And when it cuts out, it does so very suddenly - it doesn't splutter and fade away like a fuel fault - it just dies instantly, as if the ignition had been cut. This leads me to believe it's electrical, but I'm at a loss to explain it.

Anyone had similar issues or any ideas as to what may be going on here? Any input would be much appreciated.
