[DML] Missfire



Hi guys and thank you all that replied to my post. Perhaps I was a 
bit hasty about the emmision stuff, u see i have cars that have air 
compressors that blow air into the exhausr manifold on 
deacceleration. Yes I checked out my manual and i see most of it is 
the management kit.

Still dont like the evaporative canister thing.

Any way Ive progressed from a 5 cylinder engine to about a 2.5 
cylinder motor.
Found out that getting to the distributor is no 5 min 
job......cleaned cap and replaced leads etc. Put it all back fired 
he up and with much popping and backfiring thru the intake she runs 
like a dog...take foot off gas and she dies.

Re checked spark lead all in correct firing order (according to 
book, No 1 front right and No 4 front left).....so where have I gone 
wrong? 
I think the hoses on the fuel distributor.......does any one have a 
better drawing showing ins/outs/toos and froms than the w/shop 
manual?

Once i sort this out and get her running good.....ignition 
timing....we live some 1500m (4500ft) above sea level, on older cars 
with carbs the pracctice was to advance ignition by 2deg.....anyone 
any thoughts on that?


All the best

Jim
