Thankyou for the help guys!, turned out be the fuel pump and the filter in the tank, the filter had tons of metal clogging it, starving the pump, she has started every time since its been changed, just got to clean petrol tank out now to make sure it doesn't happen again  ;D

Given that the tank is plastic, you need a new pump :y

Remove straps one at a time if neccessrry and get a local enginnering shop to cut you some replacements .preferably in galv or stainless. ( they may be able to put a small curve /lip on the side for you too if you wish)Problem solved for good..
This used to be an issue on most older cars like the first carltons ,senators and mantas etc but in those cases the tank was metal so more often thannot ended up leaking when you removed the straps . ,

The tank was never dropped (well that i know of, shes had a hell of hard life from the previous owners) but needs to be cleaned out completely to stop the new filter being clogged with the remaining metal particles, and while its off i get 2 new straps made, theres a couple of metal fabrication places around my area ill go have a with, thankyou for the help everyone, fell in love with the miggy all over again  :y
