Now i have been through all the threads and tried most of what i can think of before starting a new thread so here it goes.
1992 MAYFAIR 1275 (1296) , HIF44 CARB, KENT 266 CAM, STAGE 1, NEW ENGINE BUILD (1300 miles on it)
Ok so i have had the engine rebuilt and carb tuned by a well known mini garage, driving back the car cuts out at junctions lights so on.
Like an idiot i didnt turn around but i need the car for work and thought i might be able to trouble shoot myself.
now i have replaced the coil checked voltage, wiring. changed leads. I have timed the car with strobe light at 2000rpm and checked the specs (8-12 degree advanced). set idle at 1000rpm.
but the car struggles to start and the idle is bouncing slightly.
Only thing i havent done is change the ele dizzy which i believe is original as it has 1992 on it, its a lucas 65d.
I noticed the vac breather had a carb needle jammed in so i have removed that now the car starts better.
on both cold and wrm if the car is left to idle it will start too die slowly, this is starting to do my head in because i cant think of anything else that i may have forgotton bar changing the dizzy which i will but an aldon yellow which is more suited to my set up and i have also heard that a worn carb spindle that the throttle disk is on may cause a rough idle. any ideas ?
