Dropped in a 123ignition bluetooth distributor 2 days ago. Car is running, but pops through the carb randomly at low RPM every few seconds. I just haven't had the time to debug and play with the curve. There are a gazillion threads on 123tune. I think I read them all....

Got Fred ready for his final tow truck trip. He's off tomorrow for front subframe, engine and transmission install. Fingers crossed he'll be running and driving soon March 1!

Running lean? incomplete combustion? wires put on in the correct firing order? dizzy placed at TDC correctly?

Checked the lobe centers on a hard-welded custom-grind camshaft. I’m going to give the steel rocker arms a workout on this build. -KB

Thanks for the ideas flagoworld. She was running great before I pulled the old dizzy so I'm guessing it's not running lean. The odd thing is that it's intermittent (every 2-3 seconds) and only at low RPM. I did also adjust the valves when I had the valve cover off to set TDC so I'm going to revisit valve clearance tomorrow, then re-check TDC.

My belt was running crooked in the alternator pulley so I replaced the stock mounts that had turned to mush with polyurethane. The pulley had a nice groove that shouldn’t be there so I replaced it with a fancy over sized one. I also painted my fan before realizing it was completely covered by my fancy over size pulley.

Do you spend a lot of time at high revs?

 

You might find that your alternator doesn’t charge at low engine speeds due to the large pulley.

It’s no race car but it is an upgraded alternator, 65 amp I think. If it doesn’t work out it’s easy to change back 😬

Well, if you swap the #2 and #3 wire, the car will run remarkably well, but spit through the carb every now and then... Problem solved. Now to start tuning with the butt dyno & a stopwatch. First thing I notice is that the idle is now very smooth. I used to get a minor misfire every now and then with the old dizzy.
