Still has the 4 speed distributor.

I was going to just clean out the carb and put it back on the car but it was to far gone. It needs completely rebuilt. Now I have to decide if I will put the rebuilt carburetor on my extra turbo (the first one on our automatic car that Jim built) and make it a working system. I had other plans for that turbo but I may use it on this car since this carburetor needs a major overhaul. I tested the boost limit control diaphragm, throttle return check, and even the distributor vacuum canister and they all work as they should. I am leaning toward just putting a fully functioning system on the car and see what happens.
