Super reliable but finding it extremely hard to get anyone knowledgable enough to work on her. I didn't think it would be that hard to get a carby 4-cyl engine to run right. I was wrong. Have tried several Adelaide mechanics and... well that's another story. Anyway, my baby hasn't run right since I bought her three years ago. God knows how she keeps going, but she does.
Had the old clapped-out carby replaced last week by an honest mechanic that's trying to do the right thing. Still has rough idling when warm, sometimes stalling. Starts well when cold, but put into gear (auto) and nearly stalls - sometimes does. Pings a lot but running a lot better (when warm). Timing is advanced to its absolute limit says the mechanic. Told the Fuel/air adjustments okay. Just started running her on Premium (1st tank).
Any suggestions anybody?
