    Default R10 Side Draft Linkage

    Hi Brains Trust,

    In the final stages of fitting a 40DCOE on my 1397cc equipped R10. Does anyone have any suggestions or pics of their linkage setup? Not overly keen on one of the over carby setups but will consider as a last option!R10 Side Draft Linkage-1520217759542.jpgR10 Side Draft Linkage-1520217770913.jpgR10 Side Draft Linkage-1520217784856.jpg

    This has nothing to do with the linkage, there might be many ideas. My question/warning is that I hope you have some PCV valve in the breather line. If not it will smoke like hell and suck the oil splashes in the rocker cover directly into the combustion.

    Regards,

    If you took all those extenders off, wouldn’t the original Y piece bolt onto the original spring mount that appears to be there on the extractors. Mine had a similar setup and just used the std spring.

    Both of those are genuine Renault parts. I’ve broken one in 30 yrs, which was my fault as I bent it the wrong way taking it off onetime.
    Ironically, I ended up with a full metal aftermarket one on the “concourse car”; and the original plastic one on the white R10 (and the new R8 when ready).

    Not sure if this helps, but this is the 40 DCOE setup on my A110

    You must have worked hard to break it!!! I thought they were made of indestructibium. I've always wondered how they made them so strong.

    As you'll see, mine is indeed one of the dreaded "over-carby" set-ups. The cable from the front does a right angle turn to rise vertically on the front side of the Weber & work the pivot. To accommodate that right angle turn, we used a largish diameter wheel sourced from a marine supplier.
    Works fine.

    cheers! Peter

    I can't quite see it (possibly the angle of the photos) but if you intend to track the car at any CAMS endorsed event, you will need a 2nd spring set up (in case one brakes - so the throttle remains shut) as the scrutineers will pull you up on this.

    webers already have a spring in the side of the linkage thus not requiring another.
