carb related problems
Ive got a Mk1 vw golf clipper, only a 1800 8v weber 34/32 dmtl carb and lately been having problems, when driving it just wont rev over 3500 rpm unless i set the c/o worryingly high, the problem started when i disturbed the dizzy, if i set the ignition timing to how it should be 6degree retard with vacuum off it just wont go,
retarded 11 degrees with the mixture screw wound out (over rich) it revs thru 8000 rpm (red line) but with a massive power loss (only 115 bhp)
which leads me to think, is it advancing too fast? or is it lacking fuel up top end?
any help much appreciated
