    Fuel Mixture Screw doesn't change the idle.

    Turn your distributor in counterclockwise direction.

    P23 engine timing

    I set the timing of my PU using the #6 spark plug hole,when #6 intake valve begins to open.I put a little piece over the #6 spark plug hole,when this piece begins to rise, then there is the end of the exhaust stroke.In this same moment the #1 piston is in firing stroke.This method is prescribed in B3-B DRIVER'S MANUAL.

    Got a Problem Need Advice

    when I go through the gears and in high (3rd) revved it up to around 45 mph the engine starts to spud-er and back fire and seems to loose power. I had this same problem about more ten years.While I did not disassemble my original fuel pump and restored it(cause:short stroke) this sympton continued.
