          Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
          An overbore with new pistons is the way to go. I see lots of guys that run a deglazing hone through the bore and lap the valves by hand. All you get from that is oval holes with new round rings and poorly sealing valves without a tri angle grind.

            Your pics on the motor are great. It is really coming along. I just like to see things when they are freshly painted and look new

                          Solex PA44's getting refurbished.
                          This is the pile of parts after a overnight dip in carb cleaner.

                          And a before and after.

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          A couple of thing to note. The accelerator diaphram spring goes under the diaphram not on top as shown in several break down pictures. The other thing is that PB blaster worked lie a charm to free the accelerator pump nozzle, and Venturi.

                                Steve, I believe you would get a better response if you posted a new Thread with that question. But as far as giving you an answer right away... good luck i dont know if you would be able to find an OEM Instrument Cluster i think your looking for, you could try old boat yards or ebay. best of luck to you
