    Is this the one you're after Roger..? SGDG

    It is in pretty good nick and the butterfly spindle is almost 100% so probably good enough to go straight on.

    If this is the one I'll have it on the first stage outa Dodge.

    And a screw on fuel line fitting, so it won't pop out unexpectedly!

    Hi John, you are not going to believe what happened, I drove the car to work, and when 2 blocks away, car started to shudder, made it to work, looked out the rear window to see vapours coming from the engine, petrol dripping onto the manifold, not good, appears he popped a welsh plug in the carby, and I had petrol everwhere, only on acceleration it appears. Good have been really serious.
    Anyway did not have any spare at the time, and took to carby specialist to replug, all good now, but a bit scary.
    Graham is assisting with spare carby, always good to have a spare.
    I carry spares of most stuff, and had 3 carbys but were all from 10S and nothing like what I needed.
    Sounds like you may have had something similar happen, by your comment

    If you have a look at the burn mark in the pre-restoration pic of my Fregate you will realise it isn't an uncommon thing.

    Glad to be able to help out Roger.


    Renos forever.

    Renault insisted on relying on a number of press fit and push on items on the carby/fuel system.
    Scary when it happens.

    Not wrong KB, I had the car parked under the building here at work, if it caught fire, who know what would have happened. I did not realise what had happened until I parked the car and opened the engine lid. Scary is right. I had one of our maintenance guys run up to my office , "there is petrol on the ground in the car park" he was scared too...

    Good grief. I've never heard of one of those tiny plugs coming out. Better add Plasti-Bond to the long distance kit.....

    All the early Solex carbies and post-screw fitting/copper pipe SEV fuel pumps had plain brass tubes pressed into the diecast bodies. All are prone to popping out over time and need regular checking for looseness or movement. They can be tapped and standard brass fittings screwed in, or have the tube knurled (roll with the edge of a file) and glued into place. There's a thread on this earlier.

    Those Renault Solex carbs always looked like a dogs dinner to me.
    A Solex 32pbic [Peugeot] carb would be my conversion choice, simple without all the attached flim-flams.
    If wanting to retain the water heating feature go for the 34 pbict [Peugeot 404].
    I think you will find they have the threaded fuel hose spout.

    PS. I forgot about the choke system, convert to wire ?
