Series of continuous events

Post by PeeWeeMan91 on Thu Dec 13, 2012 12:20 pm

So Monday my birthday I drove jack to the store and when I got back in the bug and went crank nothing happened I could hear the starter selinoid engage but it wouldn't crank so push started it and got it home cleaned the corrosion off the battery terminals. Connected the cables and it cranked right up drove it around for a few minutes and parked it for the night. Get up to go to work and it seams to be running on two clinders. What now swapped rotor and dizzy cap nothing pulled off each spark plug while running and each one changed how it ran. So what is it. Come on saving for a new turnkey 1776 and be done with it.

How did it run after warming up? Possible icing? Enough power getting to the coil?

So it ran good after it warmed up? Have you adjusted your choke for winter, it's been pretty dang cold the last couple of mornings.

and more importantly, "did you look at it?" just look at it. Laughing
