    I wouldn't be surprised then if the oval plate is circa 78xx, placing it in the first AUS assembled R1154 batch.

Example RCCQ RSAE weekends get people from Vic, NSW and SA. The 4CV Register bi annual Muster has them from all over Aust and overseas. This year RCCQ organized a major trip to France. RCCQ is planning major event again in about April 2014 and expecting French visitors. It will probably be for 2 weeks. 4CV register Junee April 2013 and every odd numbered year. It isn't really all that hard. Why don't the Presidents of all the Reno or like car clubs have a bit of a talk fest via conference call or email to sort out major Renault events and get together s well in advance. I haven't been to Tassie since early 1960's love to go again.
    all well said and i shall start things at the tassie end; we have a fcct meeting coming up and it will be discussed then
    cheers! peter

    Okay, so I bought Balki's (my brother) R16.
    Having trouble getting the right dizzy cap. The two differnt types listed in auto parts books at parts dealers both do not fit. Is my rotor button to be matched to the cap? One of the distributor caps fit, but my rotor button is too large to rotate within it. Advice would be appreciated.
    Had another problem with the car; it was running too hot. Found out that someone had put the thermostat in back to front!!
    Cheers, Peter

    There were a few types of distributors used on 16's so you'll need to check which one your running. Bosch, Ducellier and S.E.V Marchall were used. They run different rotor buttons so you'll need to match. Bosch were Australian specific running gear being part of the 'local content' rules and are fairly available in store in Australia as the are shared in a few other car makes of the era - eg Toyota Corolla's and Chrysler I think. Ducellier you'll probably need to contact a Renault specific parts dealer eg. Caravelle Imports or they are plentiful on ebay (Being used in Europe on all 16's). Your unlikley to be running the SEV but I was suprised to find one on a recent 1969 model I picked up recently.
    With the thermostat besides turning it the correct way also make sure that the pin hole is at the top of the hose.

    There are also 2 different size Bosch, one with a large cap and rotor and one with a smaller one. They are not interchangeable. Not sure which was on what.

    Default problem solved

    Turns out it is the large bosch type. It's a good thing that bosch prints their part numbers on because I ended up taking it in and the part numbers came up fine. Was listed for toyotas etc. I guess I'll have to get used to the froggy thing!!
