vw type 1 misses
ok i have a 1970 vw beetle with a newly rebuilt 1641 with an engel 110 cam, i am using the stock carburetor. i have replaced the distributor, points, rotor, cap, wires, and plugs but it still misses. it will start and it responds to the throttle but it won't idle and if u try to drive it u can feel it missing. we have tied adjusting the bypass and mixture screws, and adjusted the timing but it still won't run right. can someone help?
Have you checked the valve adjustment, if they are too tight it will cause a miss not to mention burn valves. With a cam it is something that needs to be checked often.
i checked the valve lash today i set it to lose 0 the pushrod still turns but i can't fit the thinest feeler gague between the rocker arm and top of the valve. not sure if it could be the coil or not. its a new bosh blue coil.
