76 300D No Power?
OK so my 76 300D w115 is loosing power.. I checked the valves and there is no problem there. Removed air filter, still no change..
Basically what its doing is; decent acceleration from stop. But not as much as it had when I first got it. Then even on flat ground it will not get over 50-60mph. Also it takes a while to get to that speed. And it feels almost as if at that speed its running out of gas. Starts to loose power and regains just enough to keep it going at 50. And don't even gete started on hills.. A moderate hill I can get up to 30mph maybe. But on my way home there is a rather steep long hill, I quickly slowed to 15mph and crawled up it in first gear. It would not go any faster. And I thought for sure it was going to stop all together lol.
My guess is there must be some type of fuel filter problem maybe? Where should I start?
