My TR3A seems lately to be really struggling to stay running until it is COMPLETELY warmed up. Any suggestions as to what I should look at? If it gets below 2000 RPM it will die immediately.

I rebuilt the SUs this past winter and had the distributor rebuilt by Advanced Distributors. Everything has been peachy up till recently. Seems to run pretty well when completely warmed up. I've seen some arcing from one of the spark plug wires, so I know I need to replace those. Also getting noticeable blowby as discussed in this thread: https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?111088-Smoke-coming-out-of-crankcase-vent.

Thanks!
