Hey guys & gals
About 3 days ago i set aside a day to work on this Festiva i picked up, I was told i had a crook head (cracked) so straight away I looked for the signs... ANYWAY, long story short the head was off the 1.3L i got it crack tested, all was good but i did notice that the gasket was just absolutely a huge mess so I replaced all the gasket's.
It is all back together now but does not run right has a massive flat spot in the RPM rage. When you hit about 2500rpm the thing just dies in the a*s.... not sure what it is but i am leaning more to Spark, maybe the leads & plugs need changing or even the placing of the distributor.. but ah, im using the same plugs as before i started the build i know this is wrong but i just don't want to spend unnecessary money just want to get the thing running. Any ideas?

Cheers, Dylan.
