    The SUN, the sun is shining

    Wheeled my faithful beat out of the garage, blew of 6 weeks dust and fired her up. Well, she backfires like crazy and wont rev higher than 2-3000 revs. Has anyone come across this before. I don't want to rush off trying different solutions till I get an idea of where to look. Can anyone offer any advice?
    I love the smell of Nitrox in the morning !

    Konichiwa Steve, you may think you are joking but when I got Toshi out after the winter there was a fieldmouse nest next to the battery. Smelt of mouse pee for weeks !

    Damp in the distributor cap?

    Dead ECU with corrosion on board due to failed capacitors?

    Just a couple of ideas.

    Nope, not a joke at all. I once left a Porsche 911 I was restoring outside for a month (in Oregon, not Japan) and found a field mouse mansion and grocery store waiting for me under the pedals. Even worse is the taste the little divvils get for old plastic wiring insulation. It must taste like cheese to them, and they usually don't stop chomping on it until the copper is cut through.
