    I have recently had Floyds 2 ltr fuel injected motor re conditioned. Currently there is a dead spot in the acceleration low down eg ,when first accelerating from stop. If the revs are kept high ,no problem ,acceleration is good if not he dies and takes some time to respond.Currently getting approx 6 klms to the liter. Can anyone recommend a mechanic who has to knowledge and the gear to test and tune. I am at Burpengary just north of Brisbane , but , happy to travel to the right mechanic. Thanks , wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a happy , safe ,and prosperous New Year. Tom

    if your getting 6klms to the litre your a bit on the rich side
    13 litres to 100klms is about where you want to be as fuel injected engines run a bit leaner ,you should be getting around 7.5 klms to a litre
    get a multimeter from super cheap and the you can check revs for idling
    get a timing light to check your timing
    check your tappets are set as they need to be redone after running engine in
    check your spark plugs what colour are they
    theres some good info on the samba
    you didn't mention if the engine was cold or hot
    check all your vacumn hoses
    check your fuel pressure
    what is your idling revs set at
    what is the air fuel ratio coming out of the exhaust
    more info could end up to an easy fix or a trip to the mechanic if you cant work it out
    I had same symptoms in my bus ended up cleaning aar and it helped a lot
