Sounds like it could be

a) Leak in inlet manifold.

or

b) Poorly setup carb.

hi do you mean gasket's on inlet or air getting in. I haven't had a look at the carb yet but will do today hopefully.

I did. Check the inlet manifold for air leaks. Other one is the carb base gaskets.

Easy check is with wd40 spray it around that area - if it picks up you have a gap ..

Have a look around all the vacuum hoses around the carb first. Could be an easy fix.
I find the hose from the inlett to AEI unit the main one to cause the problems.

checked all pipes, working fine, no air leaks

put some carb cleaner down

only starts when at motorway/overtaking speeds then if you leave running for a few minutes it is back to normal until you high rev again

any other suggestions please

thanks
