Hi, Can you point me in right direction?
I fired up my 65 fastback for a spin yesterday, took it for about 5 gals of fresh gas and headed out. Approx 6 miles down the road the engine stalled but readily restarted, afterwards it bucked occasionally and started running rough. I stopped for 20 mins, got back in and headed home. Car had no power and began to sputter and buck significantly, it backfired once also. I could only keep it running at a high rpm and then it finally died. I pulled over and tried to restart, it would but it would not respond to the gas pedal - kept stalling. Initially I was thinking this was spark related but as I write this I am wondering about possible bad gas. I used the car about 3 weeks ago with no problems and she started up fine in my garage when I started out. My points/condenser are new and carb was rebuilt about a year ago. The trip ended on a flatbed back to my garage. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks, Tom
