Surging 186 whilst at a steady speed

Hi, my 186 has just got a surging problem when at a constant speed, if i take my foot of the gas its fine, if i put my foot flat down at take off its fine, slow pickup also surges. It seems to idle fine. Recently replaced battery and its just been on an out of town run 4+hours of open road driving. Any suggestions on what this most likely could be? Thx

chrome molding

Good evening fellow members,
Id like to try and find some info on these extra chrome molding and the extra vinyl/painted roof, I can't seem to find anything in my books, or find on good old google. A gentleman in my car club has just given me a full set of All chrome moldings along the door/window and these as well,I can only see them on HQ/HJ only
are they a dealer special or a limited thing from the factor ?
Can someone point me in the right direction on where to look
Any help would be much appreciated

As I always say
Stay safe all

Just fitted the twins on the Dirty D

On the first start up the single carb was way too small for the new engine combo, my intention was to run in on the single Stromberg but it's way too small for the task.
So the on goes the X2 inlet & twin
Strombergs & all of a sudden it's idling much smoother & just needs some fine tuning now.
