I used to run 40PII's on a later 88x69 type one engine. Wonderful, but complicated! Anyway, I used this old Solex book to get me started on jetting:
http://oacdp.org/solex.html
It has all the formulas you need to calculate venturi, main jet, etc.
It will probably be a little rich for Denver, but better slightly rich than slightly lean. You can always lean it out later.

By the way, stunning engine!

I ordered the correct size of jets and as soon as I receive and install them I can start up the engine for the first time. I will post a video of it running.

That engine looks sweet! I hope that you can get it on a dyno. For reference I had ACE dyno a 1500cc Okrasa and it had I believe 72 hp.

Where did you purchase the jets?

Can you exchange them 'til you find the correct combination?

Cheers,

Paul

Have you ever driven a car with your engine? I would be interested to see what your thought were. Where they "0h, yes!", "I can't believe I spent this much time and money on THIS!", or something in between.

Cheers,

Paul

Very Nice engine Very Happy

Did you get it in the car, how does it drive?

What venturi/jet size did you end up with?
