    Carby Kits now Available....

    Hi Everyone,

    there is a guy here in Autralia that is making up a carby kit for Citroen 'D' series cars. This kit will also fit CX, probably most Pugs & Renaults with Solex and Weber carbies fitted.

    Basicly most of our cars have a brass fitting pressed into the alloy housing of the carby that the fuel line clamps to. Being a compresion fit only with age it comes loose and drops out the carby. You can easily guess the result: The car burns. So Bob has made up a kit consisting of a tap and new brass fitting that he's threaded.

    Please read below for more details if interested

    seeya,
    Shane L.

    Hello patient Deviates,
    I have got myself slightly more organised, and now have the
    first batch of Weber anti-disaster kits ready.
    I have 30 to start off, with instructions, a high quality thread
    tap (I found some M9 x 1.0 old stock but tungsten steel ones at
    reasonable cost), and machined brass hose nipple with 11mm (7/16")
    hex, I haven't included a hose clamp as you can use the existing one
    or buy one locally.
    Anyone can do the job in just a few minutes, with very basic
    tools. Skill level of 3 out of 10 ( ie equivalent to changing your
    spark plugs )

    The price (for this batch at least) is :

    If you want to keep the thread tap ........ A$ 30-

    If you post the tap back after use ........ A$ 20-

    Postage is extra but to most places its about $ 3- ish.


    I'm happy to post them anywhere, and for you to send cash, A$
    cheques or something Cit & collectable (badges, pins, stickers) of
    similar value, with or without the returned tap later. I don't use
    plastic, & hate to see banks take big fees from small amounts.

    At this stage the only limit on quantity is the supply of cheap
    thread taps. I expect that it will take me about 4 or 5 weeks to
    organise more thread taps for another batch, but if most people send
    the tap back, we can probably do every Dee in the world with these 30
    taps.

    To order, you can email me at sloughds@yahoo.com.au

    Bob

    Well, I thought I was being fussy! My Weber 32DIR21's fuel inlet pipe is loose...but so is the vacuum pipe. That's what happens when you over-service a car... How do I contact our friend?

    Sounds good and thorough. Quite a few years ago, I fixed mine (Solex 32PDIST)by rolling the brass petrol inlet pipe with a file to roughen it, then used Araldite. No problems since.

    If this is a really bad idea, I'd be interested to hear!

    I keep a fire extinguisher too. But with a fuel filler beside the engine, who wouldn't?
