Capri 24v boa
« on: October 15, 2011, 20:23:47 PM »
Just got my engine running today in my capri 24v boa project, starts ok but when it started it did not sound like it was running good attal, backfired and running very lumpy, also didn't want to rev up, I only did 30 second trials as I have no oil in my gearbox , any ideas on what it could be? I have the vacume for my fuel presure regulator connected to a small nipple on the o/s of the plenum and all overs blocked of, I's this right? Also I's the fuel in at the rear of the rail and fuel out at the front? Cheers

put oil in the gearbox. Than you can run the engine for a longer time.

There is only 1 correct way to connenct the fuel lines, and yours is good.

Is everything connected and wired up the right way? check for vacuum leaks and check the fault codes.
