I just had this for the 2nd time in 2 days with Bugsy. 68 Sprite with 1098.
Driving along, engine is running really sweet, sound absolutely fine and is
pulling strong. All of a sudden power starts to drop off, at least 1 cylinder
drops out and then the engine sloly starts missing worse and then just dies. I
pull over to the side of the road, turn the key, hear fuel pump tick, and
engine fires up and I can drive on without a miss.
Now the only thing done to the engine recently was taking off the stock air
filter cans and I am running with just filter base, filters on, with a cap
plate on top of the filters to secure them in place. I would think that more
airflow would tend to lean out the engine and I would need to adjust mixture
but not to the extent that engine just completly dies.
But then starts up again after it craps out.
I'm thinking either fuel filter is clogged and needs changing. I can't recall
ever changing fuel filter in 9 years or electric fuel pump is starting to crap
out. I'm thinking Faucet or something similiar is back under the PS rear fender
Thoughts or ideas. Got the back yard to cut and I'm hoping this list has some
ideas for me when I return in about 45 minutes. 75 degrees and sunny, I want to
go cruising but now worried about straying far from home. Help!!!!
