Rebuilt z24


Recommended Posts

I just rebuilt my z24 for 83 720. Complete machine work on engine with comp cam and weber carb.


Had weber carb on engine before rebuild.


The engine runs great but has a skip when parked at various rpms except idle. Engine did this before the renuild also.


All new components with exception of distributor and coils


Any ideas on the skip? Carb adjustment maybe? It is adjusted per redline documentation.


All suggestions greatly appreciated

There are 8 plug wires jammed on that distributor cap with not much space between them. Inspect for damage like cracks around the posts or carbon tracking/ Take a good look at the condition of the plug wires... old worn damaged? Poor insulation could cause the odd spark to jump to another wire or to ground. New plugs? Check them. Are they clean or are some worse than others?


DO NOT replace the coils unless they are absolutely bad with no output. These are better than any you could buy and seldom go bad.
