    Ok I know it could be many things but...
    I have a 1.6 twin port never hesitated before but now...
    SS exhaust and new bocar carb 34 pict 3 .
    Starts great, runs great under auto choke then seems to hesitate on acceleration.
    Carb is set up to be 10 half turns on idle and 5 half turns on mixture.

    Any ideas please?

    Did the start of the hesitation coincide with the new (crappy) Bocar carb?

  3. I found this same hesitation with a new but junk far east carb.

    Found an old Solex and refurbished it -problem solved :thumbsup:
  4. Doubt it's the exhaust so the only other new addition is.........?
  5. I would give that carb a real good clean with carb cleaner. Take it off the engine and clean the thing.it could be an air leak
  6. I had the same issue with my bocar carb. Check to see if the acceleration pump is working and its components. (if yours has one?) My was not so a strip down and air line blast sorted it.

    Okay got an update for you.
    Fitted a svda dizzy and that has done 99% of the job.

    Still a bit of flat spotting in low revs but then maybe this is just the way it is?

  8. No, it's not, I'm afraid. More investigation do do!

  9. Check the jets in the bocar as they may not be right or drilled properly
  10. A lot of the aftermarket carbs need a strip and clean from new. They are full of grime from the making process.

  11. Take the points and condenser out. Replace it with electronic ignition

  12. as you have fitted a new dizzy, did you redo the timing. assume you fitted a new vac line to the vac can and which port on the carb is it connected to and which dizzy did you fit.

  13. Running a bit lean maybe?
  14. Hot air feed into air cleaner missing?
