Hi all,
	The last couple of times that I have driven the Midget I keep having

this same problem.  The car feels like it is missing as I accelerate.   
The car "sputters" around 3500 RPM's during acceleration.  It actually  
sounds like there is a gurgle while the car is trying to get past 3500  
RPM's.  Before and after 3500 RPM's it seems fine.  This only is  
happening as far as I can tell when I am accelerating and not when I  
am at a constant speed.  The spark plugs were just changed but this  
was happening before they were changed as well if that helps.  Any  

Thanks in advance,

'74 RWA Midget "Mini Lee"
'77 Midget
