Engine Performance problem
1984 Nissan Truck 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 152000 miles
I got this truck last year for 150$ and it needed a new motor and transmission. Put a new motor, trans, and clutch in it. Now about 10,000 miles later I have a big problem. In the past month, Ive went through 8 coils. The truck has a Weber racing carb on it. You can drive it for a few miles and the coils overheat and its like youre driving down the road and youre cutting the ignition switch on and off. Push in the clutch and floor it it might go to 5k and start back firing. Then evntually it will die and wont crank back untillit cools off. Got any help? Its not vaporlocking or has any fuel delivery issues. I have switched distributors and ignition switches even straight wired it to no avail. Does anybody know whats wrong?
