Hi all, new to this forum but would appreciate some help. I have a 68 Li special running Delorto 28, jl3 pipe 175 top end. On short runs going through the gears it's fine, pulls through each one. I'm still running in so not doing anything over 45 with half turn on throttle. It's when I'm doing a longer stint in 4th, say along a dual carriageway where I'm not changing down but holding a steady speed, that I lose all power like a soft seizure. I disengage clutch and coast and drop down to third and it will fire up again and go. Just wondering if there is anything I should or should not be doing. As I said on short runs it's fine only on longer top gear runs. Thanks in advance.
