Chyvv Posted January 1, 2020 Report Share Posted January 1, 2020 I currently have the standard Nikki 2-barrel thing on my 180B, I don’t care much for it, as rebuild kits are impossible to get and nobody seems to know anything about it. I’m trying to tune the car to a roadworthy spec right now, but can’t get the thing to run right. The timing is set correctly, the car has new points, plugs and leads, but the engine runs somewhat rough, it stumbled under throttle and stalled coming to a stop yesterday (it’s an auto, but I will be manual swapping it after it’s registered). I put new fuel in it (highest octane available) today but have been hesitant to drive it, as just sitting, if I apply throttle to hold a certain rpm, the engine will make a fair few quiet popping noises and run like crap. The primary nozzle appears not to spray consistently either. What can I adjust that might mitigate this at least for a short time? I feel like it will be more worth my while to change carburettors but I don’t know what the most plug-and-play answer is to that in terms of hooking up the linkages, manual choke, bolting on to the manifold, etc. Quote Link to comment
