    Default Wanted R20 Carby near Seymour Vic

    Michael, aka Viragewagonman has stopped near Seymour on his way to Melbourne for the Renault Roundup with suspected carby problems on his R20. If anyone is nearby and has a compatible carby and can help, PM me and I will give you his mobile number.

    Thanks.

    Default What sort of Carby is it

    G/DAY BOLLA,
    What sort of carby is it as i have a new ( I think ) Weber with auto choke that i got off of Kim Slattery and i think he said it was for an R20, It won't get him out of trouble now but it could be a good long term fix.
    Cheers Peter.

    Thanks Peter. Turned out to be a dodgy set of points which Michael had a new set of in the back of his car.

    Hi all after leaving Bolla it started playing up again. After further trouble shooting with Stephen(sarosa) it looks to be a blow head gasket. Looks like Im catching the train home!

    Sorry to hear that Michael. Must have cooled down a bit while you changed the points which made it seem OK.

    Hope you get home OK.

    See Michael , that's what happens when you desert the mighty R12's for those new fangled, hi-tech Renaults
    Hope you get it sorted soon!

    I would like to especially thank Solomon(bolla) and Stephen(sarosa) for all their help and support over the weekend.
    I would be still on the side of the road if it wasn't for them!
    Thanks guys ,much appreciated.
