just brought an early bay crossover model fitted with a 2 litre type 4 engine with a single weber prog.
have been used to type 1 engines what do i need to know about the type 4? does anyone know of any articles or manuals i can read on them.
it all runs fine apart from a flat spot when the throttles pushed suddenly its ok when accerating gently any ideas? :)

Best idea to bin the points on any car!
I fitted electronic ignition to my bug in 1978 and never looked back to the timing going out. The dissy is better replaced with a centrifugal type cos it works better than the vac type. Be prepared for some jiggling with the springs if you do though!
