Lee your perseverance is impressive with the best most complicated carb set up that could possibly have been invented, but I under stand the challenge to master it.
The speedometer has always over cooked the mph, the car has never gone so fast and it has actually improved the use of the low end torque of the engine having a slightly bigger rolling diameter, in the corners there is not much that will touch it, even I have not found the limit to the grip it’s endless, track only now with plenty of runoff, as l think it will be more like a 911, it would be amazing if it is still a gradual brake away.
If you are going to keep it and want it to be reliable take the lot of put a new manifold on with a Holly or Webber, and then enjoy the Atmo, the most under rated GTA when it can breathe :D

On the plus side...no overheating (in fact a bit on the cold side) no fuel leaks, no water leaks, working alternator. Always restarts, despite the stalling at idle. I’m sure it’s just adjustment now,
I anticipated teething issues...the quantity of them has been a challenge to remain motivated and it’s tempting to change more items to get there...but now I feel that we are definely getting there,
It’s behaviour on the road is fantastic, lots of grip, completely undistrurbed by rough roads and poor road surfaces and really quick to 60...which is all you need around here. Low end pull amazing.

Well after a quiet summer I took the Atmo to Bicester today for the scramble.
Still won’t idle reliably but aside of that goes well and almost everything is working just the the speedo contacts needs a clean as it’s still only working 90% of the time.
Just need to work out why the idle a bit sporadic...it’s occasionally fine....
That and it needs a wash.
Good to see people there on the club stand...shame the old cars were matched in number by A110s....getting a lot of interest.

Looks nice that Lee, the dark blue really suits the GTA.

Probably needs using more and more to iron out the flaws.
