LRH40258 Scots Pine Green Silver Wraith II (1.08.80) Dark Green Everflex and Green leather
Hi guys, I am a new to the forum and RR ownership so I really value the expertise that is evident through all these threads. I purchased a Wraith II recently, completely unseen and without any interaction with the previous owner. The car was sold at Auction out of a deceased estate after a number of years in storage, possible 4 years. The car starts and runs at idle absolutely fine but under load seems to misfire, on cold short runs it wafts along quite adequately but as it warms, the oil pressure begins to drop and the running gets increasingly rough. On one occasion it FTP after 30 mile but once it cooled down it fired up straight away. The cars history suggest fuel lines, tank and pumps have been overhauled as has the ignition coil, HT leads, rotor arm, distributor cap all prior to it being stored. So I am just wondering where I should start investigations? It is heading in for a compression test and some investigation next week at a local specialist but I would appreciate some advice as to where they should be focusing there investigations rather than randomly changing components at my expense. Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.
