Sputtering?

Post by jbarnish »

My 1970 1600 just started sputtering while giving it throttle? Any ideas?

Could be a million things... gonna need more info. Occurs under what sepcific conditions? Last time it was tuned? State of the fuel filter? Screens in the fuel fittings dirty or float issues? Carb oil level and Type? I'd listen to Keith and check carb oil first.
