Need help figuring out why my car will not start?
I have a 73 vw super beetle with a 1776
engine. Having problems getting my bug
started. I have replaced coil, spark plugs &
wires, distributor & rotor, new points, new
ignition switch. I adjusted my valves &
rebuilt the carb. It will turn over catch for a
few seconds but won't stay running can any
help me figure out why.
distributor must be dropped with no one on firing stroke, maybe 180 degrees off, wires must be plugged in ,in order of rotation
If you have spark and it don't start. check your fuel supply. the gasline runs from the engine down the center of the car, in between the front seats look under the rug. the fuel line has a part rubber line runs to the gas tank in the front. the rubber line is clapsing from fuelpump suction cutting off the gas supply. replace any rubber fuel line. it should run. I had the same problem once. this is as long as the fuelpummp is good.
