1965 Sprite MK III

Postby gwalker4 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 8:04 pm

I am a new member and now own a Sprite MK III for the second time. The 1st time I owned one was in 1965 for 4 years and college was more important than the MK III; really missed it. Now I have another one and it will require a lot of work. As I start back into owning this one I am asking for some help. I have set valve clearance, new plugs, new points and condenser & set gap on points, static timed, synchronized and adjusted SU carburetor, and new fuel & air filters. When I go for a drive the engine backfires & sputters now and then. The engine also seems sluggish, not much get up and go and sometimes when I come to a stop and put the clutch in the RPMs drops and the engine quits. Car is positive ground and positive lead on coil is going to CB at distributor. Any ideas what's going on? Thanks.

Welcome! I don't have any engine advice for you but just wanted to say welcome to the Sprite Spot. I am sure someone here will be able to help.

What is the color of the inside of the tail pipe?
What is the color of the spark plugs?
The problem might be related to an incorrect fuel/air mixture. ??

I should have also asked how the car/engine ran before all of the changes listed in your post?

are you saying that at idle if you depress the clutch pedal the enging labors and stalls ? Opening the clutch has nothing to do with ignition or carbs. If thats is what happening there is something really wrong in the trans or clutch housing.
