   So if you havent seen my members ride thread youll be delighted to read this. I apologize for the redundancy but I dont wanna clutter that thread unnecessarily, and would like to reach the rest of you folks. Car drove to where i bought it and sat for two years.



   Im having an issue where im starving for fuel even though both filters remain full and clean. I can hear the fuel pump working away. 


Car will start, and run. then if gas is applied or a load put on, it bucks, surges, and dies in short order. car has an o2 sensor so that would mean I have the illustrious feedback hitatchi right? 


confirmed vac advance, spark are both good.

When my Loyale did that same thing it was the O2 sensor, but I had a code as well telling me that.

so....after blowing out gas lines and general research/dinkin around i found a problem.....backwards fuel tank filter. facepalm. tuned the carb, adjusted timing. purrs like a kitten now and even went up the block a couple times. still has a little starving symptoms under heavy acceleration. for now i will attribute this to the fuel filter i probably ruined. opinions?


i did have a check engine light off and on when i brought it home...i hope my o2 sensor doesnt need replacing
