2.0 that won't idle...

I come home after driving a few miles, pull in the garage and it dies. Will not start back up, even after cooling down. Its a 2.0 with 40 Webers. Put in points, plugs, etc. Fuel pump and fuel delivery seem to be fine. Cleaned carbs and all linkage. New plug wires. I thought it was an ignition problem as it will not idle at all. I can keep it running by pumping the gas, but it sounds like crap and dies as soon as you try to let out the clutch. Any thoughts before I pull out the rest of my hair would be much appreciated. As always, thanks guys.

I had that problem a year or so ago on my '74 2.0. It turned out to be a ruptured diaphragm in the vacuum advance unit on the dizzy, I think ( my memory is fading almost as fast as my hairline).

Anyway, try adjusting your timing just to get it to idle. I sucked on the vac. hose and it would not hold a vacuum. That's how I finally tracked down the problem.

Just a possibility.

Good Luck

I'd check:
- Dwell and timming
- Voltage (pri and sec) at coil
- Fuel pressure
- Float level in carbs
- Air/vac leaks
- Plugged idle circuits on carbs
Good luck
