I already tried but like the nrg hub, the spline part won't pass the threads that ab olt screws on to. :(
well thankfully the place i bought the hub form let me return it after some conversation for full price so I'll just buy a 620 boss hub off ebay.

It'll take awhile but I still have work to do too.

My 620 dash bezel also broke today when putting in my radio. was kind of really disappointed.

I wasn't even using much force and half the thing popped off.
I think it comes off from removing the gauges in the back but 'I didn't have enough time to play with it.

I got my radio into the spot but I still need to wire and put in my speakers.

i was thinking rustoleum's seafoam green for the color.

Everyone breaks their dash bezel. Everyone. There really should be a PSA about how not to break it.

havent been on this shit for awhile but painted winter grey and did not turn out too nice but looks really mean.
I'm gonna repaint it some day for fun. Enjoyed it plenty and picked up some diamond steelies that are 16x8 and fit well.

Probably timing/fuel related.

Clogged jet, hole in fuel line letting air get sucked in, water in tank, fuel tank could need cleaned. I'd guess fuel, could be spark...

Pull rotor and check contacts n see what they look like, check plugs too, they new? Use NGK nothing else.

if you are un sure of fuel tank, run a line to gas can. problem is if it did by chance suck shit up theres a chance there is crap floating in bottom of bowl... hard call man... did you rev it out a bit and see if it went away?

check your choke too

double check your wiring on the matchbox dizzy. make sure spark isnt able to jump somewhere... make sure you have a ground going from the spade on the matchbox side near the vac advance too. i heard missing those could cause issues. Take some effnig photos of what you have going on so we can seeeeee

Is it sporadic or constant? Only when getting on it or when idling also?

Sounds like water in the gas to me. Run it empty and see.
