Well done you won’t regret putting the lift in, unless you’re jacking points are good on the rear do not put the lift pads there, l put them on the engine Frame where the cross member is with the big holes cut out in it so the load transmits on to the turret, do not put it on the pice with the holes in it as that is thin. On the front spread the load with with a 4x2 until you no the condition of the car, you will soon see when it’s up in the air.
Just take your time and look what looks strong with out any rust common sense is required ! if you are putting a lift in you must be a practical type of bloke.
That’s how I do it other members might have a different method, hope you enjoy the car when it’s all up together

Well if the carbs work just run it but to get the best out of an Atmo and to make them super reliable put the Holly kit on it from Jhon Law JL Enginenering.
Plus you will get good mpg but the old carb setup you will see the fuel gage go down in traffic.
