right john a ford cortina is easier to repair,but??---well without haveing the jam jar in front of me its difficult to tell exactly what the problem is mate ,it could be a worn lift pump and that incorperated in the injector pump so its a garage job to remove it and overhaul it,Dont rhink its anything stupid like a fuel filter but you could try changing it anyway ,Whats the smoke like when its first started and when its running till the engine warms up.As i said without it front of me its difficult to diagnose because a lot of other factors are involved like hydraulic tappets gummed up,worn valve seats or pistons and rings and from what i hear from people who are on holiday the car is worth thousand pounds if your lucky in the uk ,about 2000/3000euros here in spain so it might pay you to trade it in on the scrappage scheme

The only thing I can think of is some how either some gas got into your tank or some other foreign matter. ie: sugar or something else.
I know if you put gas in a diesel it will mess up and slow up the motor.
Making it want to cut out. Not sure about little trucks but the big trucks use this stuff call Hot Shot.
It helps get the water/condensaion out of the tank and lines.
Hope this helps and good luck.
