hello guys, i have 2 cars with the same problem. they start and idle ok. sometimes rough, sometimes good, but when i hit the gas they dont want to rev and start to sputter. sometimes the 79 will rev up to 3000rpm and wont go past. i changed green wire, leads, fuel pumps, cleaned out gas tanks, i even had injectors cleaned. its getting fuel to the distributor. i even cleaned small filters inside. any ideas ?? looking forward to hearing from you


thanks:(

I would have thought is was the fuel tank swirl pot or strainer. Do you have the problem when there is more than 1/2 a tank of gas?

Is that the car with the missing bbs nuts?

I think that slc really needs a set of euro/72-73 bumpers. I have a set in the rafters of my garage, but need $500 for them.

Sorry to go OT.

Skylaw had a similar problem I think. I can't remember what the solution was: fuel pump relay? Fuel tank strainer? Plugs? Wires? Rotor? Coil? I think he went through it all.

fonzi, thanks for the reply, i forgot to mention we also changed the strainers in the tank. i put about 5 gallons in and had the same issue, yes that's the car with the missing nuts, where abouts on the east coast are you? hows the condition on the bumpers? i'm not to familiar with this site, how do i get in contact with this skylaw person?

I am not sure where Skylaw's thread is, but the egv107 (sticky at the top other forum) is where most of the great information is stored and skylaw has several posts in there. I can try to do a search for you, but it amounts to using google and the search function in this forum. The text box atthe top left of the page searches all of benzworld which isnt ncessarily what you want. There is a menu that pulls down on the right side that can search just this r/c107 section. I often use google and add "r-c107-Sl-slc-class" to my search string and it does a pretty good job of finding posts in this forum.


I am the guy that you have been texting regarding the bbs rs wheels, and I am just a few hours south of you.
