EA woe's. Please Help!!
I bought a 6 cylinder ea cheap from a friend of my son's, who had bought it to do up.
When he bought the car he was told that it ran well and was used daily up to about a month before it was sold. But when he got it home it ran like a hairy goat with heaps of smoke.
Since he's not real bright when it comes to these things i bought it.
We thought it might of been the fuel injection 'cpi' because some one had taken the carby apart and put it back together with aviation gue and silastic. The fuel had melted it all through the carby. So I replaced it with a carby and manifold that I know is very good. But it still runs like a two stroke and kills mosquito's with the smoke coming out the back, which stinks of fuel.
I replaced the dizzy cap and leads.
I also check the plugs, they are sooty and smell of fuel, number three plug was still wet with fuel.
When the other fellow bought the car they told him that some pulse thing was shorting out and he would have to pick the car up from the mechanics were they had droped it off to be fixed.
There seems to be a lot of noise coming back through the carby.
I think thats about it, any ideas??
