i'm going out to take my ASVAB test this afternoon in central phx.
the problem i'm having is at 1/4 throtle the car wants to bog down and die. this happens in all gears (which makes it hard to get up to speed...) and also when idleing.
rebuilt the carb a few weeks ago and everything was running well.
last night is when this started...
not sure what i need to fix, but i need help on getting it figured out. it is my only car!
if anyone knows anything, try to call me 480-338-2714.
not sure if it's the air-fuel mixture, gas pump, diaphragm, vacuum leak.

PLEASE!!PLEASE!!PLEASE!!

Is it doing it at steady 1/4 throttle or just when you push the gas?
Does it ever clear up if you leave it at 1/4 throttle?

Did you get her running yesterday? I read your post shortly after you put it up, but having nothing to contribute, I decided to not get your hopes up with a topic reply email...

How was the ASVAB? I remember taking that thing...

talked to the son of the sailor of a guy's friend that knew the guy that used to have the VW shop off i-17 with the blue VW on top of the sign at 33 ave something or other, while i was painting curbs today.
actually the guy claimed to be the actual son of the owner that used to be there a few years ago. he said, "check the valves 1-2-3-4 in that order. after that, pull the wires one at a time to find out if it's getting spark properly, pull the plug and check compression, check gap on the points, retighten head bolts. to start things off of course..."
so i guess i have some work to do this weekend

oh, the ASVAB score was 69, recruiter said i'm pretty good. but, hard to predict the future.

not sure if idle jet is clogged.

at 1/4 throttle motor bogs down, but eventually clears up as the wid pushes me or i can draft behind a semi or i start going downhill...

what carb (s) are you running?
Might be your excelerator pump....
Does it run good other than that...idle fine?
Does it do it just under a load or when you're in the back dry reving it too?

34-pict3
just rebuilt the carb, new accelerator pump dia...
yeah everything runs good just not above idle, after the revs get up, everything gets better.
and today for some reason it was running great, no backfires, decent power, didn't have to draft behind a semi. i think the universe is f&^%ing with me...
it bogs down while dry revving and under load, except for today, might hold of until sunday to do anything...

With the car just sitting there, not running, take off the aircleaner and pump the gas and see if you're getting a good squirt in the carb. with every pump...should have almost no play before the squirt after pumping the throttle

so things were so bad yesterday, i pulled over on the 101 and broke out the bentleys and read over the distributor section. sunday night we pulled the dissy to replace the oil seal. i guess i should check the points on a weekly basis. regapped them and now it runs like a dream come true.
never ran better. i can finally go faster than 50mph.
