Thumbs up Got the 65 out today

Seems to be running abit rough, and the hesitation from a stop is worse.

So, apparently I need a tune-up.. But on these older engines, what is there? Isn't the distributor really the only hightly technical piece? I have a 1bbl carb and I doubt that could be the trouble

I definately won't be swapping any time in the near future. I have a tiny 1-car garage, and won't consider doing anything until I get a bit more room.

If by "parts" you mean "skill, experience, general know-how" - Then I can't disagree. However - those 'parts' take some time to accumulate..

Re: Got the 65 out today

Hell If ya'll was down yonder in the south, we'd put a little shine down the carb and fix everything
Have you check vacuum lines, choke ?? tune it and re- build the carb
