I've been considering throttle issues, however after replacing the ignition amplifier module now the stumble has gotten worse and the engine struggled on my brief test drive at 15 mph with a steady throttle. In an earlier experiment I turned the throttle cable tensioner a few rotations and that improved things, but that seems like a superficial solution.


I will say that after today's session mucking about with the distributor and getting the re-installation wrong the first time, I am more familiar with the subtle dance of TDC, timing, and finessing the distributor back into position. So it was valuable as a learning experience even if the outcome was not what I wante.
