Re: Uphill in 2nd; 30 Minutes Later, Not So Much
That indicates to me an engine problem. It could be in the ignition, as my power problem was, or it could be in the governor (if it has one )/ fuel problem. You also may want to check the engine compression.
Engines produce torque, and over a specific amount of time, that torque translates into horsepower. If the load is too great, the engine rpm will drop and less torque and horsepower are produced. If the load stops, so does the engine, unless
there is slippage somewhere in the drive train.
I have yet to see an internal combustion engine that slips
under load. A reduction in engine rpm due to poor ignition, carburation, or timing is not
the same as slippage.
