Re: Acceleration issues.
Thanks for the responses. I will answer the best I can in a way that should be easy to read lol.
djzx3 This happened to another car of mine and a good cleaning to the ignition coils and a tune up seemed to do the job, also replaced the fuel filter and it was somewhat clogged when I took it off. But after all that, it got better. When's the last time you tuned her up?
-Cleaning of the ignition coils? what would you do to do that?
Well tuning has been an ongoing thing since I bought the car. I have replaced the fuel filter(about 2 summers ago) but it may need to be done again, its not that expensive so I think doing that will be on my list for once its out of storage.
jwko It has a carburetor correct? Bogging down during acceleration sounds like a bad accelerator pump. The stalling out during sudden deceleration, probably fuel related also. Might be time for a carb rebuild.
-Yes its a 2bbl carburetor on my 351 Windsor. I have replaced the power valve. and cleaned the carb and replaced the jets in it. Is the accelerator pump something different?
