ive got a massive problem.at 3000rpm to 3500rpm the ar stutters (coughs) does my head in its like hitting the limiter then i push it abit more clears up then does same thing in the next gear. it does it in both petrol and lpg any ideas im thinking electrical problem only does it at those revs so harmonic balancer? or maybe dizzy any ideas has this happened to any of you guys before??

fuel line, pressure, filter or pump.

the above are purely speculative & just a wild random guess.

Get a timing light put it in diagnostic mode to check timing .
Could be plugs,leads, coil, tfi module.

Sounds like it's not a fuel problem, so must be ignition related .

Your going to have fun if it's the dizzy cap.
I got to mine while the head was off and it was still tricky to get the cap of with out damaging it.

Check that the hose to the Map sensor isn't loose , when mine fell off it wa like it had a 1521a in it lol

If it takes you ages or you damage the distributor cap while removing, you're doing something really wrong.

I have no issues removing the cap off the distributor. Removing the whole distributor however, might be more difficult.

Tap the cat/mufflers with a spanner, if it sounds like something is vibrating, you might have a caved in muffler/cat internals causing blockages.
