Hi,

Being a novice, I didn't mark the distributor body but took a photo of the position of the distributor as I thought that would be enough...

Cheers from everyone's help.

This sounds more like intermittent fuel pump. If it’s sparking at the plugs. My one use to cut out then work. Was a bugg*er to start sometimes then run like a dream. Ended up putting on an electric pump so I could hear it working. Problem sorted!!! Have you checked your getting fuel when not starting?
