Hello! I have a beautifully restored '68 Beetle. Ran great until I let it sit for about a year without seriously driving it due to life issues, then I wanted to start driving it again. Engine will pop and sputter, then die. Sounded like a fuel issue. Drained the tank, put new gas in. Still the same. Then got out the manual and checked the points. Re-set the gap. Actually ran a little longer, but still starts sputtering and dies. Took the carb off and checked it, bowl is working fine, getting gas, needle is functional. Now not getting any turnover. Did I blow a fuse?
Is it loading into the trailer and shop time? Suggestions?
