I just recently got my 2002 running by putting on a new(er) solex carb, and some new plugs. I am able to get it running in the 900-1500 RPM range when warm, but it is very erratic. what could be the problem? points and condnser are pretty much new, and I just replaced plugs, so I'm not too sure. thansk

start the car and spray bursts of starting fluid around the base of the carb and the intake manifold and the intake manifold and the head - if the rpm's increase when you give it a burst of starting fluid at a particular area - then you have a vacuum leak there

when was the car last running decently and what have you done to it since then?

I had a problem with a 76 which I refused to think

that it was the carburator, changed all electrical,

etc, finally tried a Webber and bingo! Anything as

sensitive as a carburator, will probably won't run

right after 30 years, unless professionally

overhauled.

Good luck

a leak. Can make for erratic running without affecting ign advance noticeably. Also check idle and main jets for trash etc. Idle jet fuels engine up to about 200-2500rpm, so that could be the problem.

Happy hunting
