Thanks Dave. Have a local lmc member who is popping over this week who refurbished the carbs for me. I shall mention this to him. We had exactly the same problem before they were refurbished but definitely worth consideration because we are still using the same size jets.

Ok Dave.  Thanks very much. When it's finally sorted I'll put a post up about the fix.

I had the same issue on my Berlina.  I tried all manner of tuning issues, engine mounts etc and a new throttle cable and then noticed a slight tendency for the engine to idle high at traffic lights.  Problem was therefore diagnosed as a sticky throttle pedal bush - not apparent when just pushing the pedal by hand.  I replaced the bush and problem solved. Now very smooth.

Thanks David. I'm away for a few months but will check that when we return.  So many helpful comments.
What I've just remembered is that there was a brake servo fitted which shouldn't have been to my my 1.2. The brakes were seizing so we removed it.  The kangarooing started then.
Could that make sense?

Yes Andrea that's what we thought it might be. When it is finally sorted I will post the fix.

I had the same issue with my Berlina.  Finally traced to a worn throttle pedal bush! Seemed Ok when operated by hand but it's deceptive. Worth changing the cable too.

Thanks David. But it revs fine at rest and reverse. Did your berlina do that ?

Hi. Sorry to bring this up again. I have just read a thread about the 123 distributer which I have fitted. It says you must have an electric tachograph cable rather than my manual one. Which actually stopped working when we fitted the new distributer. Is this a possibility for the severe  kangarooing just when going forward ?

I thought the Rev counters were electronic anyway, driven from the negative side of the coil. If your Kangarooing happens under load when accelerating it`s usually on the high tension side of the ignition eg. plug leads or coil king lead.

Deleting a cable drive to the rev counter wouldn't affect the motor but I think I might be tempted to reinstate the original distributor to see if it improves your symptoms?

Thanks Guy. I would do that but the new distributer was installed to stop the kangarooing together with quite a few other parts. None of which have changed a thing. Not sure about that Jay. Way over my head. I just read that a 123 distributer needs electronic rather than manual cable. Away till end of march. Just sitting , thinking and worrying. Lots of ideas on this post to address when I get back to uk. Very frustrating as the car looks glorious but doesn't move forward.
