I am the proud owner of a 1971 250/8 sedan in Vancouver Canada and bought it from VANCOUVER AUTO LTD new. Stored it for the last 8 years in my garage. I would like to drive it for the Summer but it will not run.
It starts out beautiful ,first turn,
but as soon as the chokes open the RPM drops and it dies. Put in new plugs ,new fuel pump, two new gasket kits and two new jets [# 265 MB printout]
Hope someone can advise. Harald.
