I have a 1981 Westfalia Van. Just replace all vacume hoses and new plugs. Engine runs fine untill you apply full throttle then it cuts out then comes back then cuts out. Its fine at 1/3 throttle but when you step on it it cuts out.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Have you did continuity test on the micro switches on the throttle body?
