My '73 450SE rough running :(
Sooooo.... the great deal is still a great deal BUT.... when you think you have the problem solved and it isn't it sucks. Changed cap and rotor thinking that would solve it, nope. Did plugs and wires today, nope. So the best I can comeup with is trigger points? Anyone ever clean theirs? I figure that's worth a shot before replacing.
It idles rough and when you take it off you can have the peddle almost to the floor and it's starving with no power and rough. Today I had a 4 mile run of smooth running awesomeness though! It was fantastic. Then I got home, shut it off and an hour later, right back to the same thing.
Also cleaned the throttle position sensor.
It's a little frustrating.
There ain't no party like a Detroit party...
