Hi guys, I know its the wrong forum but you have plenty of twin sparks out there.
Ive got a 164 TS which revs fine when no load but when I take it for a spin it gets to about 3.5K revs then not a lot of anything. Ive swopped the coil units, no difference, ive disconnected the coil units and run on one at a time, no difference, ive took the top of the maf unit and it seems to be working ok (definately runs better when its plugged in)

Anybody got any ideas?

sounds potentially like a fuel starvation problem. my track 75 will not run properly with less than half a tank of fuel due to (i think) the internal fuel pump having failed. I think this is like a feeder pump to avoid surge problems. When the car was on the road it did it to a lesser degree but felt very much like a lack of power under load as the revs built up

do 8v twinnies have variators, if so where is it and whats it look like?
reason I ask, is it was pretty low on oil when it started running crap.
