Scribe of Lincoln Posted September 18, 2010 Share Posted September 18, 2010 Hello All, Just got my 1600 B back from it's engine rebuild. The bottom end has been completely re-done with crank regrind, new shells, oil pump etc. The engine pulls well until you reach 50mph and then it hesitates as if it's not fuelling properly. I've been back to the garage and the timing has been checked and is spot on, as is the mixture on the carb. (it has a twin choke Weber with manual choke). I've cleaned the carb out, the fuel is fresh and has an octane booster in it. The plugs, points, condenser, leads and distributor cap are all new. The only thing I can now think of is that the valve settings may need adjusting? Anybody got any ideas? I'm now resorting to alcohol.....
