When I first put the Weber on my B it ran pretty well. Then I dropped
my car off at a reputable local shop that specializes in foreign cars just to
go over the timing, carb set-up, etc, double check my work. A mistake. He said
I had everything just about on the nuts. Unfortunately the car ran better
before he made some "fine adjustments"
The car(b) now has what I think you are calling "the dreaded off-idle stumble".
It also alternates between idling like a jeweled watch and refusing to idle
without full choke.
Going from idle to throttle when starting from a stop the car(b) hesitates
unless I give it a quick jab of the thottle to get past the stumble.
To anyone out there: is this stumble because the carb is set to lean? Once
moving the car(b) runs fine.
Now, I put the Weber on from the begining so I don't have a reference point to
SU's. I still have my SU's but will probably save them for a winter project to
set up on the car. Any advice on curing the Weber off-idle stumble.
