Hello again Chris,
I hope you are well mate. I managed to get that Renault 17 running very well. Out of all the things that could have been wrong, weren't! My idling problem was tracked back to the alternator. I invested in a modern version that provided another 20 amps and that solved the problem. It must have had a weak spark and it was relying on high revs to generate power to keep it alive. I am now working on the front and I can't wait to get it back together again.
I'm sorry I haven't posted the fuel pump as yet please forgive me mate I've been dealing with a family loss. I was up around R North Shore Hosp today and I could have dropped it off but completely forgot to be honest. I'm in the inner west area so if you're in the area please call me on 0429 699 959.
