My 82 westy aircooled stalls at stops after the engine is throughly warmed up. The engine runs fine when it has been running for the first 20min. At a stop the engine is running but as soon as i depress the accelerator it cuts out and i wont be able to start the engine untill 5-10 min. has elapsed. There are two related fixes on these message boards;one is getting the signal trnsformer wiring harness and the other is soldering in a mfd capacitor across #2 and #4 contacts on the air flow meter.Both of the fixes refer to the "vanagon syndrome" I checked to see if a wiring harness has been added and to my inspection - no. I would like to try the 22mfd capacitor fix first. What would you or anybody out there recomend that has gone through this problem? Has anyone tried the capacitor fix and does it work? are there any detail drawings or written instructions on installing this fix?
