Its been a while since I last posted a message on the subject of Bugeye and
it's steady speed miss. For those of you who were not here and to refresh
those of you who were:
When driving at a steady RPM (any speed in 4th gear) the car will run fine for
a few minutes and then start to miss. I can simulate this miss by pulling the
choke all of the way out. When it starts missing I can press the clutch in
and let the engine go to idle and it stops missing and will run fine for a few
minutes and then do it again. With the accelerator wide open it never does it.
I held it on the floor for about 5 miles on the freeway (actually passed a few
cars) and it ran fine the whole time. A couple of minutes after I backed off
it started to miss, mashed the clutch, let it go to idle, and it stopped.
I have swapped out every major part and nothing makes any difference. It does
it with the Webber(new) or the SU's(rebuilt), an internal resistance coil(old)
or and external resistance coil(new), a stock type Lucas distributor (old) or
an Aldon yellow(new), new plug wires or old plug wires and new plugs or old
plugs. I have also tried various combinations of the above.
I checked the float level in the Webber and in the SU's and they are all o.k.
Any and all thoughts on this will be appreciated.
