    Default 1978 Scout II Pickup

    4cyl 196, rebuilt carb but still bogs when given gas, idles just fine but if you give it some gas it dies, can go down the road for a bit but then dies when giving it gas... If you slowly give it more gas it's fine, revs up nicely...its a 1 bbl carb, any suggestions? Been bringing this baby back from the dead, been sitting for four years and would sure like to take her for a real spin ;-)

    Lights
    Wipers
    Horn Relay Switch
    Steering Wheel
    Dash
    Dash Panel
    Wheels
    Brake Booster
    Master Cylinder
    All Hoses

    Spark Plug Wires
    Battery
    Wiper Fluid Holder
    Battery Cables
    Fuel sending unit

    Check to see if the accelerator pump on the carb is working.

    After you check the accellerator pump, try removing and plugging the vacuum advance line and then driving it again. You have the classic symptoms of a hole in the vacuum advance.
