ok, so i bought a 1969 vw bus, type 2 1600cc motor, but it didn't run... so, slowly i have been working on it, learning something new every day. i got new: battery, plugs, wires,points and condensor, coil, ignition. i hooked everything up, all the electrical wiring in the engine compartment, changed the oil, rebuilt the carb, and set the timing... and alas, she runs. now, i know the basic things i need to do, like adjusting the valves, and setting the idle on the carburator (if not getting a new one), and i also gotta put my new accelerator cable in, cause my peddal sticks.
so now to my problem, i can start the engine, but when the accelerator lever, on the carb is all the way closed, my carb makes a click noise and then if it is not quickly depressed, it dies. hmmm? any input would be appreciated.
also i have another problem, i can start the engine with the clutch fully depressed (pushed down), but when i let it out the engine starts to slow, if let out all the way, the engine dies... got any ideas??
i would like to hear what you think of my situation,
thank you for your replies.
ps.. anyone know where to get an emblem for cheap???
