Buy a Weber. You’re going to have enough things just a little different that getting help will be challenging. We’ve got about 200 years of collective Weber experience here and guys can really help.

Plus no self respecting Italian car has a Holley!!

lol....I figured it was built under license from Weber, so it would sort of count. That plus it's got A/C and a GM automatic trans, so it's virtue has already been soiled.

Are you looking to sell one of them? I need to do a little more research, but I may be interested in the cleaner one that has 26 27 on the bores. I'm in the north east US, so depending are where you are, shipping cost might make it prohibitive.

Yeah I wouldn't mind selling. I was going to use as a performance mod for the 1600 but now going a different route on that. I'd make you a package deal with the other carb for parts since it never hurts to have extra jets, etc. Say, $100 for the pair? I'm on the west coast but they're pretty light, so I think I can throw them in one box and get them to you for about 20 bucks. Let me know if you want 'em.

That might be a plan, I'd rather spend money with other enthusiasts than some random guy at a flea market. I'll let you know.....thanks Dave!

Except the Holley carbs were never installed on the 124 Spider. The auto trans was an actual fiat supplied part, so was the airco.

I understand the trans and a/c were factory, I was just going with the "self respecting Italian sports car shouldn't have" theme.

Falls into the category of "do whatever you want." Enjoy the car, Holley or not.

That's funny considering that Fiat 1100R, early 124 Sedan, 500, 600D, 850 Sedan, 850 Spider/Coupe (& likely other models) were factory-fit by Fiat with Holley carbs. :o

Yes, they were. A low point in fuel delivery, like when fiat installed Solex carbs in place of IDFs.

Well, the roll cage, 15 x 7.5 wheels, fender flares, cams reground by Crower, forged pistons, vented brakes (and maybe just a touch of nitrous) it's getting weren't factory either :mrgreen:
