The fuel seems to be flowing though the line okay. I cleaned out the carb a couple of weeks ago when I suspected a bad needle valve but it doesn't leak. Could a sticking needle valve cause such problems?
The coil is a pertronix epoxy filled coil. The contacts look a little rusty so I will try cleaning them.
Other thing is I am suspecting that the bumper surge spring could be worn out. If it is would it cause the problems I have been having?
