Hello all, I'm looking for a mechanic in Devon, preferably Dartmoor that might be able to help me. My SUMB has been neglected for a few months and will not start, in the winter it would start and run for a few seconds then clonk out. I've checked the obvious things like battery, spark plugs, alternator, fuel etc but she will turn over fast but not fire. It's a mystery to me! But she must be moved for an approaching wedding and for some cosmetic work. A few local mechanics and engineers have had a fiddle but no luck and everyone I call is reluctant to get involved with an old military vehicle for some reason! Any ideas on what might be the problem or of any garages I could call? She's a 1959 petrol V8 cheers.
