Hey all,
Just replaced the cammshaft pulley on my daughter's EL and took it for a test run after a warm up. Ran OK but when I pushed my f :? oot down it shuddered until it changed gear. Any ideas? Could it be low transmission fluid? or something more nasty.

Thanks all :?

Is it only doing it in a certain rev range? I had a similar issue with my EF a while ago at about 2,500 - 3,000 rpm, thought the trans was playing up as she'd shudder and f@rt about changing gears under mild acceleration. Turned out the coil pack was dieing. Replaced it and the leads and she's been fine ever since.
But being that the EL's had a dizzy ignition, check the timing is spot on before doing anything drastic. Then I'd check the condition of the coil and leads and work up from there. Hope this helps.

By pulley, did you mean the camshaft gear? If so yes...one tooth out can have an effect.

If you meant crank pulley...or harmonic balancer, most likely no.
