At altitude these engines when tuned to drive near sea level are known to dump in too much fuel, can't say if that is your problem or not. If it is running to rich to start, a possible solution is to ...

If you get rid of the humped tin for the AC then the repair becomes very easy, especially if you can find the flatter Type 4 car tin.


This is just a flat piece of metal glued and screwed into pla ...

Bad points and/or a bad connector could effect the wave form being supplied to the ECU. More likely they would create a poor spark though. As mentioned, I would suggest checking your fuel injection ...

You need to have power at the #30 (B+) wire at the fuse box or nothing is going to happen. If you recently messed with the battery and didn't clean the connections while you were at it, it is likely t ...

Unplug the O2 sensor and see what effect that has.

Your symptoms sound similar to Vanagon syndrome, but that diagnosis is always iffy.

You can use any bus or Vanagon bellhousing if you have the 210 or 215mm clutch. You need the starter that matches the bellhousing you are using though.

The problem comes in when you have the '76 an ...
