FC Test Drive After Tune-up

Post date: Nov 17, 2011 7:30:08 PM

1959 Willys Jeep FC-150 out for an early winter ride.

On the Road Again...

We replaced the cap, points and rotor, set the timing and dwell. F134 Hurricane idled fine, but was hesitating a bit when under a load. Especially when in 2nd and 3rd gear.

Finally figured out we had a slight vacuum leak. Also cleaned out the crankcase ventilation. Running slightly rich, plugs still fouling up with soot, but definitely running better. Still need to let it warm up a bit when cold.

Everything we do is an adventure. Nothing seems to be easy. At least the first time 'round.
