Green Machine "Misfire" Update
Hi guys - I just wanted to say thanks for the advice about my mysterious "misfire" at certain engine speed/load. You were spot-on! When I stripped my carbs at the weekend I found a strand of glass-fibre matting in one emulsion tube, a fleck of crud in another and a splinter of fibreglass resin in one of the other jets.
Serves me right for running the engine without the air cleaner after doing loads of fibreglass work!
Gave all the jets a good clean out and now the engine is got its growl back (short exhaust in a mid-engine car), and now there is no hesitation anywhere in the rev range.
Thanks again, I would have been looking for non-existant ignition faults if it hadn't been for your help!
