  • Hesitation cured!

    A while ago I asked if anyone knew how to correct a bad hesitation problem I was having. One of my local club members told me to advance my timing. It worked wonders. My car runs like it should now! Such a simple fix that apparently no one here knew about or thought of. I thought I was going to have to purchase a new carb and all along the cure would only take about 1 minute to do.

    Well, it's never as simple as that with an online diagnosis. Timing is one of a dozen or more causes of hesitation. We would have no way to know over the 'net what you are defining as 'hesitation'. I have seen a hesitation be a slipping trans., sticking brake, plugged muffler, bad coil, loose wire, etc. I assure you, plenty of folks here know about timing, but it's merely ONE of many possible causes.

    When one does an in-person diagnosis, there is a purposeful series of checks that make up a proper diagnosis. That makes it hard to randomly recommend one possible fix. Glad your shot-in-the-dark solved your problem!

      I agree with you Bob. I only posted this to let others that may be having the same problem know of one of the solutions.
