Well the hand throttle approach works ok. I rechecked the mixture again. With both the "fastest idle" and lift pin tests. The two points are within a flat or two of each other. So the mixture seems...

You never got SU carbs with a D cam in a stock motor. The switch from the D to the K cam for K-jet was in '74.

Although the D cam was sold by the Competition Service as a fast road and mild race...

It is the stock D cam as far as I know. SUs definitely like strong vacuum. For now I've been keeping the idle around 850-900rpm instead of the stock 800rpm. I may turn it up to 900-950 and see how...

That is one thing I haven't touched. I'll check that. I've been eyeing Ron Kwas' rebuilt fuse boxes. So far it is has been on the "nice to have" list. Or I could just clean it up and rebuild it...

At this point I am rather puzzled. I have gone through the ignition system, valve lash, re-tuned the carbs (I was apparently running rich at idle), put high current draw systems (headlights,...

I've got a bunch of scrap aluminum lying around. So I'll probably just make a bracket from that.

I've already got the starter on a relay. Might as well put the big current draws on relays. Since the car used to be an automatic I decided why not keep the one that used to work as part of the...

I've already got a pile of metal Bosch and Hella relays I pulled from my 240 when it went to the scrap yard, along with other spares I accumulated. I'll probably just repurpose the headlight relays...

I think that may just be the solution to my problem. I'll start looking into a headlight relay. I just did the math on what I am pulling through that ignition switch. With 55w low beams on my H4s and...

What would you consider a normal voltage drop with the high beams on? On my car it drops to almost 12 from 14 when I turn on the high beams. The problem is still there, albeit lessened. It won't die...

Apparently it was also a bit too light on ignition timing. It was a few degrees short of the often quoted 32-34 degrees at full advance. So I dialed up the timing at idle to 14 degrees. The motor is...

This is why I carry an extra set of plugs and a whole distributor in the back of the car (the spare is a bit worn, but good enough to get it rolling again). This one was definitely a bit sneaky. The...

I cleaned the ground strap from the bell housing bolt to the chassis, the ground for the alternator, and the ground from the battery to the chassis. The grounding strap was a bit loose where it...

Last I checked the timing it was OK. I'll get a timing light on it while the lights are on and it is trying to die. If all is good it should still be set at 10 degrees BTDC.

Maybe the ground strap...

I yanked the plugs just the other day to check my tune after a highway drive. It seems to be doing ok. Light gray and tan. Fuel pressure is sitting at 2.5 psi.

I'll take the alternator down to the...

B20 idle slows and almost dies when headlights are turned on

It would seem there is something wrong with the charging system on my B20F (SU carbs) and could use some input because I am unsure where to look next for the problem.

Today I was out for a drive...
