Au1 5Ltr problem...

ok the problem is this... When accellerating from idle uptill 1600 or so rpm it is sluggish and blowing black smoke (which suggests overfuelling?) anywhere after that in the rev range is mostly fine with a little hesitance... I have already changed the O2 sensors and it has not rectified the problem and i am stuck as to what else it might be, any ideas or suggestions muchly appreciated...

Ahh... yes, I think Dodgie had that problem a while back. It was suprising how a tiny bit of tape affected things. Anyway, glad to hears she's all OK now. Nice to know my Audrey has an Oxford FF cousin in Brissy - what part of town?
