    Orrrr...Could there be excessive crankshaft end float which (when the coils are energised) pulls, or pushes, the whole crankshaft, conrod and piston assembly out of kilter? Just a thought...

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

    How would that develop though on a ride. You'd think if the engine were that out of whack it would have always been like that.
    Hmmm.
    I will try pushing and pulling on the rotor to see if there is any movement in the crankshaft.

    Cheer Chi!

    It's a bit of an out-there theory, but I was trying (in my head) to explain the overheated engine.

    I think if the crank was on the way out it would feel like sitting on a jack hammer irrespective of the lights being on or not. The over heating is probably down to the rotor rubbing on the stator.
