    Net nuuskierig, en BAIE dom met die goete............what difference does a higher degree btdc make, more responsive or what??

    And why should the btdc not be too high at sea lever, the thickness of the air??

    Minder lug veroorsaak dat ontbranding stadiger is agv. laer kompressie. Daarom word die tyd vinniger gestel vir n langer ontbrandings tyd.

    By see vlak is daar meer lug, so kompressie is hoer en ontbranding is vinniger. As die tyd te vinnig is sal engine pieng.

    .......EXACCEDLY like that, yes!!!

    Maybe with a bit less of a "sway", those OME's are really worth their weight in - uhum - excess fuel??

    Make sure your fuel pump is able to keep the carb at the correct fuel level and make sure all your vacuum hoses are in order. I remember a 2f where the Intake Manifold was cracked and sucked "unmetered air"
    , caused lots of problems until it was discovered , the moment it heats up a bit the crack opened and the stumbling got worse until it died.The design of the Exhaust Manifold direct under the Intake causes it to heat up fast.

    Just another thought , when you check the timing do you disconnect the vacuum advance or not, at about +/- 900 rpm the advance is already starting to come in, So idle should be around 750 rpm and timing adjusted with Vacuum advance disconnected, if not it would cause the timing to be retarded.

    Ok, let me try:

    at higher altitude, the air density (mass per volume) is less than at sea level. The engine always sucks in a certain volume of air per revolution or intake cycle. Hence, at high altitude that volume of air contains less mass (kg or whatever) than at sea level. For the chemical reaction of combustion it's not the volume, but the mass of air & fuel which counts.
    At sea level the air (or better oxygen) molecules are packed tighter together with the fuel molecules (higher density, means more weight per volume, means more molecules per volume) inside the cylinder, which aids combustion. At higher altitudes those molecules are a bit further apart, which is less ideal for combustion. Hence starting the combustion a tad earlier at higher altitudes ensures that maximum pressure inside the cylinder is available during the power stroke or downwards movement of the cylinder.

    Easy, ne?

    OK. Just stopped at the Oom.

    The coil is too "strong" and burns the dizzy's points.

    I got another coil and points, took it to him. 'n "Gewone" coil.

    Does this sound right??

    Must say, that jerk was a "spark" jerk, not a "carb" jerk.

    Hoekom die ander Hoender die ou coil uitgehaal en met 'n "high" een vervang het sal net hy en sy naasbestaandes weet

    Guys, does it make sense, the "wrong coil" thing??

    Hope so, I just want the car reliable and 100%, without kakkies.

    I have a higher powered coil, too. It supposedly gives a better spark and my distributor is almost old enough to vote...
    No, seriously, I guess one can go overboard. With the original coil you can't go wrong, a sensible upgrade should be ok, too. But if it burns your points, it might be too much of a good thing...

    I have seen that if the car runs better if it is set rich, and it is not the timing, it might be burnt valves...

    .........have also crossed my mind, Hedge. But ja, I think lets just get everything "correct" first, and then, if its valves, I'll so that anyway, maybe then sommer make it "compliant" with unleaded, I've read somehere that can be done??

    The car cost me VERY little, so I'm not too hartseer to spend a couple (good) $$$ on it. Body/gearbox/diffs/etc etc are DAMN nice, new OME, tyres, etc etc.8)

    That means he put in a electronic ignition coil ,it is designed to work on the vehicles that came from the factory wit electronic ignition and is rated at +/- 40000V
    Normal Coil for point is rated at +/- 25000V, that means the electronic coil will burn the points. You said that it was fitted with electronic ignition and that must have confused the guy, since these
    electronic ignitions that replace the points are still rated for the normal Coil! I suggest to get the so called "Blue" Bosch Coil ( it is actually silver now) , it is about the most reliable coil you can get.

    JWR, ek het sommer 'n Midas coil gekoop - moet ek kyk vir daai Bosch ene??

    Ja ek moet.

    Myself nou net geantwoord.

    Quick question - just called Bosch, they have one in stock, is that a "universal" coil, will it work on the 2F?? Sorry Guys I'm uber stupid with these stuff, yoyr help is VERY appreciated!!
