1 Running problems on 17/10/2013, 7:08 pm

Fastys a bit broken sad

Running really badly like its missing and I can't seem to sort it out. I've changed the points, condenser, dizzy cap, plugs, rotor arm. I've adjusted the timing, cleaned out the carbs and jets, checked for air leaks, checked the tappets, remade electrical connections. I've tried pulling off plug leads whilst it's running and can't seem to isolate it to one cylinder??? I've run out of ideas and it's driving me nuts!! Sometimes it'll run lovely on the drive and then run shit on the road. Aaaaaarrrrrgggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!

Any ideas??

cold. is it dead?

It was intermittent. I fixed it several times (air leaks, timing, new plugs points condensor dizzy cap). Ticks over ok ish, but it just misses badly when driven...

Sometimes it'll be a bit lumpy if I havent driven it for a while but thinking back , this problem started whilst doing 70 up the golden valley. I struggled to get to the station to pick up Becki and limped home. But as I say, It'll run fine sometimes and other times it misses like fuck!

confused
