1963 AP5's dirty old '82 Sigma SE

Recommended Posts

The first task was to replace the factory carb. I pulled the plugs and it was obviously running super lean and on top of this i am sure that the vacuum secondaries weren't working. I couldn't find a rebuild kit for it so replacement seemed like the best option. I went for a 32/36 Weber because I have had good results with Weber's in the past and I find they are easy to configure and tune for different applications.

I managed to rework the throttle cable hardware from the original carb so it would work with the Weber.

It was a little fiddly but ended up working very well.

Here you go @MaxPower

The front springs were just a little loose with the car jacked so I made them secure the oldschool way with some locking wire.
