Sorry I didnt need that after all! ;D

Turns out the reason it overheated was the heater valve broke through.

Refilled with water and it still wouldnt run.

Mark Bland came around and noticed the points had snapped also when he removed the cap the rotor arm smashed...no exaggerationbit literally smashed.

New points and rotor and job done car now runs.

I need a new heater  valve though(currently bypassed).
