Car hasn't been started for two years, i've been restoring it. Weber 32 DIR Carburettor has been freshly rebuilt, fuel is getting to carburettor fine. Problem is sometimes it will turn over and over and not get a spark. Sometimes it will start and run like a dream, sometimes it will start fine then degrade to a lumpy, uneven up and down idle. When the idling becomes rough the exhaust fumes seem to become more pungent and smokier.
