When was the fuel filter last changed?
Not changed since the restoration which was just over 12 months ago.

Anyway, garage say the fuel pressure test was done after the fuel filter so would already take that into account.

Now focus is on ECU/sensors (as when you switch off the fault goes away for a while then comes back) so garage trying to find/adapt the wiring loom to recreate the 800's fault code reading socket...as I am advised that during the restoration a 220 wiring loom could not be found so a 620/820 one was used which was adapted.

Sounds like the ignition timing is out, or the cams. Something like that. I'd imagine if so, lambda reading may be well off?

How about fuel filter?
