Whilst you camp, establish all parameters to this problem. "Runs great but starts weak" needs a full courtroom style detailed exposition.71whitewesty wrote:Sure looking forward to the 2016 visit.
Fair warning though, that electrical problem is still there. Once the winter weather was behind us I started driving Bus 2 so I could put some miles on it and make sure it's ready to go. Well I put about 3 K on it, mostly shorter trips but a few 100 mile trips. It runs great but starts weak.
Until I drove home from the Woodburn Vw. It started sputtering real bad about 40 miles from home. I checked points and let it cool a bit, it was in the high 90's, started it up and made it home but had the same issue. It won't start now. I think the condenser is fried but I haven't messed with it yet.
I won't go into detail on this post because I'm camped out down by a river on the southern oregon coast at the moment in Bus 2 but it reminds me of last years troubles, exactly. It's not in the motor because this is a different motor and the problem is the same. I think it's somewhere between the ignition switch and the wires to the solenoid.
Bus 2 with the HFM motor is still running fantastic with almost 15k on it since your visit.
"Started sputtering real bad" are we talking hesitation or backfires? Inspect carefully the breaker points to see if they have a burnt contact surface and pitting perchance.
