Received the completed carb back from Carbs, Etc. in
Phoenix today. I'm pleased to announce the
workmanship lived up to the advertising! Total price
was $114.00 + $15.00 fgt for a complete overhaul
including new throttle shaft bushings. They even
cleaned up & plugged an ugly hole in the upper barrel
caused from an overtightened flame arrestor set screw,
at no extra charge. Surprisingly even the mixture
setting was right on.

I had removed the points and added a Pertronix
LU-142AP12 ignitor while the carb was out, so it was a
real pleasure to have Amphi start right up. The test
drive/swim was a success.

For those interested:

Carbs, etc
2847 W. McDowell Road
Phoenix, AZ 85009
toll free: 888-777-8208
website: www.carbsetc.com

Now that she's running, Amphi gets hooked up to the
Breeze again and we're off to Calgary, Lake Louise and
Edmonton in the morning!

Larry,

Great info. Makes me glad I never returned my "core".

I also did the pertronix. This is a highly recommended upgrade. No
modifications required that would detract from the originality of the
car. The whole unit fits under the distributor in lieu of the points.

BTW, I am told that the Euro spec Amphis did not use the flame
arestor and that removing it will improve performance. Have not
tried this yet myself.

Mike I.
