I have just renovated a Charnwood 20 with the P66 engine. The problem is that though the engine continues to run the revs die when I put it into gear and it doesn't have the same acceleration. Any solutions to this problem would be most welcome. I'm not a mechanic but I'm used to motor bike and car engines.

The Stuart is a very unique engine in the way that the throttle control adjusts automatically as one shifts in and out of neutral. If you throttle linkage adjustment is correct or close then the engine should rev up or throttle up as you shift teh gear lever into either forward or reverse - watch the throttle lever that sticks out the front of the throttle control colum shift as you change gear. The nuts on the linkages are adjusted so that there is a sufficient throttle applied as the engine goes under load. If the linkages adjustement seems to be OK then it may be becuase the engine is fuel starved but then the carby should be coughing to indicate this condition. I hope that give you a guide to at least do some problem solving. You can always maually give the engine more throttle as you engage gear to test whether you need to adjust the linkages.
