Progress on my yellow cubs power issue!

Postby Shadow_storm56 » Mon Jul 19, 2021 2:24 pm

So I had posted before about the 2 cubs, red one has tons of power and yellow one is weak. I haven't even gotten the new coil or cables yet but people were talking about timing advance under load with some weights in the distributor. Never found the actual weights but have been spraying wd-40 in under the cover and it must have gotten to the right spot. It sat a few days and now I'm starting to gain alot more power. Plus I found out both cubs like marvel mystery oil in the fuel for some reason.

I'm not out of the woods yet though, the gain in power made the overheating issue worse so it's just working my way through the issues one at a time..
