If new wires don't fix it, I'll gladly get rid of that eyesore of a lawn ornament for you free of charge! =P hehe
Hopefully new wires fixes it. Good luck!

Turned out to be the distributor. I swapped in one from another car... actually an EA81 disty. And it fixed the problem.
Although, another symptom I had was the tack was jumping around. Not sure if your tach is doing this.
Try swapping distys. I had the disty rebuilt for $150... Philbin in Portland, OR.
Hope this helps... Ron W.

Very sad but I have been very lazy this summer. Too hot to work on anything. I swapped out my disty with the other one I had and it fixed the stumbling but now the fuel pump does not give that 7 or 8 seconds of gas to the engine upon first turning the key. Once the engine actually fires I get 12.4 volts to the pump and it works fine. During cranking I only get 9 volts and the pump does not pump. It will be a problem as long as the thing sets for a while and there is not gas in the carb to get her going. What do you think, should I just bypass it altogether and run a hot wire (switched of course) to the pump or what?
PO bypassed the fuel pump on my brat (dont know why) been that way for years, works fine.
Have done this on a few vehicals aswell
