hi my betty, starts up fine and goes fine, i ran to nottingham and back last weekend and ever since she keeps cutting out when we have to stop anywhere for too long ie traffic lights and junctions, i thought it was because she was cold but i ran her out this afternoon and she is till doing it, any ideas on what could be wrong would be very greatly recieved (she has just had a tune and the plugs replacing)

many thanks

Sounds like carb problem to me - on the right hand side of the carb (normally) there's 2 small hexagonal brass jets (idle jets) carefully unscrew and check for debris in the holes - blow through them. Once certain they're clear replace. If that doesn't work your carb needs setting up air/fuel mixture - this might explain your smoke problem unless yor piston rings are worn!

check the fuel jets in the carb, take them out and clean them... common problem if the carb hasn't been serviced in a while. :)
