Default RE: xj12 hot start problem

Greetings,

Sounds more like a dreaded Lucas OPUS ignition amplifier to me. When the car cuts out, remove the coil wire from the distributor cap and hold it 1/4" from ground while someone cranks the engine over for you. You should see a nice blue regular stream of voltage spikes.
