Got me a problem: Evil or Very Mad
I took the top half of the motor off to clean and paint. Laughing
Carb was off for a month. Sad
Put it back and car ran like you know what. Evil or Very Mad Mad
Took it off and cleaned it, put it back and same thing. Evil or Very Mad
Adjusted carb, can't make it better. Mad
Replaced points and cond., no change. Mad
Replaced plugs, no change. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
Dis. was not moved.
Vacuum leaks checked without spraying carb cleaner.

I still have no acceleration while driving, it revs to a point and stops. While setting still acceleration is fine.
WHAT THE HECK IS IT?

It does sound like it's sucking air, but no black smoke. Backfire with flames out of the carb sometimes though.

Are you SURE the distributor wasn't moved??? I'd put a timing light on it if it was me.

If you can drive it over to my place next week I can take a look at it. 1 to 4 in the after noon is good as the baby is sleeping then and a loud VW will help fill her pampers.

For SG if you have a video camera and a budy film it and put it on you tube and link to it here.

pssttt..Eric..Hes in Virginia!!!







ok you need to remove the dist cap. now find the timing mark on the crank pulley.



got it? good!


sounds like the dist is 180* out with flames out the carb.

you wil need to hand ctrun the crank pully to the right untill the timing mark is on top at 0*.

trhis will either be tdc or bdc.

I do not recall, do you have a vac or 009 dist?

if its a 009, there is a #1 cyl notch in the top of the dist housing. line that up with the timing mark on the pully along with the dist rotor pointin at the same location as the other 2 marks ( dist notch and pully mark).

if you are at tdc, then this will set you close to 0* on timing. then adjust from there.

if not. repeat but rotate the crank around again till the timing mark and pulley line up together again.

I will through some pics up here...
