The carburatorproblem can be many things. Wrong adjustment from the throttlecable, wrong setting of the idle screw. Not good functioning of the warming up unit (automatic choke) etc etc.

I hear that it runs and reacts right at the movement of the throttle.

It depends of what year the carb. is. The early ones had a big screw which adjust the idle speed. The later models had a small screw at the lever that is mounted at the throtle and where the cable is placed.

The big screw is placed in the carb. Nr 5

The small screw (newer type) is nr. 10

That must take care of the idle speed. If the cable is conected and the tension is wrong you can have a difficult running carb also but mostly it stays running.

LOL! They only sold the wires? Surely they could have sold the car with the wires in it and make more money. And then buy a tent as a home or something :mrgreen:
Good the interior is nice :) Any pictures?
