Engine Performance problem
1972 MGB 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 60000 miles
I ran the fuel tank to almost empty. When I pulled into the fuel station, the engine died. I simply thought it was out of gas. Since then, the engine starts and idles smoothly. It even revs up smoothly, (no missing), but on the road, it quits after a very short distance. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, plugs, points, distributor cap, condenser, rotor cap and spark plug wires. It will not pull itself more than a couple hundred yards before it dies. I let it set for two minutes and it goes a few more yards ( back to the house). I get it back into the garage and it starts right up and idles smoothly.
Help, I don't know where to look next.
have the same problem?
