Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

Welp sounds like it's sumptin else. I would get a small squeeze bottle of gasoline and add a squirt of gas while it is doing it. If that fixes it for a minute you know it's in the carb - intake. If it gets worse or about the same we need to look at spark next I use one of these https://s6.postimg.or...

Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

If memory serves they are supposed to flow around a quart a minute but will run in normal use at most anything over a pint. if it passes the test you show either remove the float bowl drain plug or the whole bowl if it doesn't have a drain. Be sure to hold it level while flow testing if you have to ...

Re: Front engined VW

I don't trust any tank liner anymore they can and do dump most anything in modern fuel and call it a proprietary detergent. There is no way the liner manufacturers can anticipate what the fuel companies are going to do. A few years ago there was some quickie mart fuel in the Iowa area that would mel...

Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

Another inch of rotor diameter would probably make more difference than any pad change. Generally Sintered are much better when hot not so great for everyday riding. Unless of course your everyday ride is on a race course or canyon carving.
