    505 - Is it just tuning?

    ok, now when in idle, its fine. But when you accellerate, its jerky on the spot, doesn't move for a second, and then it kicks in fine and takes off. EXCEPT for the times when it stalls before the power kicks in

    It only does it below 50 kph and when u give it gas.

    I can't really drive it cause I get too much abuse when it stalls at the light in peak hour traffic

    Could be a carby accelerator pump problem, JoFuS.

    Other possibilities include jet problems, distributor advance weights sticking, poor carburettor adjustment, incorrect float level etc etc.

    Give us some more information about the vehicle. What carby is fitted? Auto or manual?

    It's an 82'505 Gr with solex carby and auto transmission.

    Yeah, I was hoping it was a simple tuning matter.

    Another question, To put a weber carby on it, do you need some sort of adapter kit or can they bolt right in. If yes, where do you get the kits.

    Will I need to change air cleaner, etc?

    The Webers go on easily enough, but my experience (though limited and absolutely at odds with that of others) was terrible.

    I still advocate the use of a single 2" SU from a Rover 2000. An adaptor would need to be made, and plumbing from the air cleaner, but it will work perfectly with no alterations, I'm sure... and be more economical.
