Sorry to hear of trouble with your 96 I have run a 96 for 25 years as my only car only time I had problems as your's I found that the flange on the weeber carb had become bowed and the gasket was broken I facesed up the carb fitted new gasket back to good starter and steady tick over again. If you use the freewheel you must have a good steady tick over. Hope this may be of some help.
