i'm not sure what else i can do. still having back-fires, can't accelerate, can't get out of 3rd gear...
i need help figuring this out.
yesterday i went to Dougs Bugs and Bunnies. had them check/adjust the valves (40$). started heading out, didn't get 1/2 mil down the street before heading back with the same problem. still back fires and doesn't accelerate. co2 meter said everything is good, not lean or rich.
might be an ignition thing. WTF!!!!
so i leave, heading to north phx on the 101 at rush hour to pick up bearings and seals... feel like shooting myself, no gun....
still popping and hissing and back firing, actually worse after readjusting the valves. call back dougs bugs. it might be the coil, condenser or wires. still contemplating shooting myself.
get a new coil, and condenser. installed..
nothing is changing!!! only getting worse.

i need help from anyone that can help. i can ATTEMPT to drive to you, but no gurantees. call me at 480-338-2714, heading to mesa in a while.

THANKS, jeff

Does it start right away or does it wait for the engine to get cold?
What are you running for carb(s) do you have?
How long has it been doing this and did you make any changes prior to this happening?
Lastly, Anything else done fuel/ignition wise to this engine that's aftermarket?

It almost sounds like the distributor isn't lined up correctly and either retarded itself or wasn't installed properly.

Did you have to reinstall the distributor or did it just work its way loose and twist around like crazy?

On a VW motor the disrtibutor will only from in one way. It has an offset notch in the distributor drive gear.

Just like a mopar, it's got a slot. you dizzy can be in phase or 180' out. as long as the cam and gear was set up correctly when the engine was built.

If you MSD box is going bad it will do the same thing...Thats if you run a MSD

Glad to hear you got it squared away. I'm no beer nut (ha!)- I've never heard of Landshark Lager. Confused
