After several months in lay up I decided to make a start on tidying up my 1983 2000 Coupe ready for the spring.First problem of course was getting it to start but after much cranking and two batteries later success! However this was short lived as it quickly became apparent that the engine was running overly rich.Screwing in the idling adjustment screw fully had no effect.A strip down and jet clean was called for, me thinks.I have a small ultrasonic cleaning bath so after removing the cover,jets and floats, into the bath it went and after 15-20 mins certainly looked a lot cleaner inside and out.All passageways were blown through as were jets and holders.I then reassembled the carb. as per the Haynes carb. manual.I also decided to replace plugs,plug leads,distributor cap,rotor arm and the coil for good measure.After replacing and piping up the moment of truth! The car certainly started a lot easier but again its running far too rich even with the idling adjustment screw fully home.
What an I missing, apart from my hair? Any thoughts anyone?

At the risk of being labelled a complete divvie - what was the present - the thing that allowed you to strip the floors so well? If so i need to tell my wife about it. Have same car, but loads more rust!

Really enjoying your restoration pics, it looks like your Beta Coupe has led a very cosseted life & has obviously been well looked after over the years. Keep up the good work (and the momentum!).

and seam sealer to all panel joints.all 1970s car were badly built but the lancia beta was built very strong going by the amount of spot welds that i have uncovered   that they were built strongly but lacking in seam sealer to all the joints that needed it
