Sounds like a bad ground. Make sure you have a nice big earth cable
mounted from the engine to the bodywork and that the connection is
clean and secure.

I actually have two earth straps - 1 from top of gearbox housing to
firewall (the same point the battery earth is mounted) and one from
underneath the gearbox housing to the floor of the car. I know its overkill
but heck, it isn't much trouble.
