Many thanks to Donny and Pete for their determination and success and of course locating the engine earth strap. I sure this info., will be very useful to others in the future. Apart from starting problems bad engine earths are notorious for other problems as the engine electrics depend on having a good clean earth point. In the past I have seen cars suffering from burnt out throttle cables as in some cases the engine will try to earth any source it can. Electricity is a lazy brute and will always take the shortest route even along other positive cables when a good earth is not present.
Well done again and many thanks for the updates.
