Thank you everyone for all your help and suggestions regarding the broken tachometer and carb configuration.

After messing around with the carbs, I was able to drive it today; smooth idle and good high rpm. Still not as smooth as I would like but the new jets are not coming until next week so I'll keep it this way for now. I also get another instrument cluster from APE for experiment.


I got a chance to take some pictures today. The car came with bumpers detached. I then put the bumpers on this afternoon so that the car can be inspected as part of registration tomorrow.

What do you think about those Borbet Type A wheels? I'm debating whether I should put the 14" Cromodora Daytona or leave it as is. I have a new set of the Cromodora in the attics. However, these Borbet wheels are 15" and the tires on there are pretty sticky on dry surface.

Hopefully, you'll enjoy the pics.

The wheels kind of go along with the big tachometer, not exactly period but give you maximum tire for performance. not the worst I've seen...

I am still trying to figure out what is wrong with the original tach. If I can get that to work, the big tach will go. But then, I also like the smoothness of the modern tach. As such, I'm thinking of taking the gut of a modern Auto Meter 3.5 inch tach and then integrate that with the original instrument cluster.
