This is now sorted thanks…..the tappets were tight resulting in the engine stopping when it warmed up.  I should have adjusted the tappets 500 miles after the engine rebuild (now done 1200) but its such a pain to have to take the exhaust off to do it that I didn’t get round to it.  As far as I can feel from the starting handle there is still good compression so no long term harm done.
