How can I identify my carburettor?

For many of us it is not really simple to correctly identify the carburettor without having to remove it.

Often one can often find the answer by simply studying your car registration.

First of all you will need to look at what fuel is used by the car:

      • Diesel: your car was built after 1984 and has no carburettor but an dieselpump.
         
      • Petrol: your car has either a carburettor or a fuel injection system. The final answer will come further down the page. Please take a further look at your car registration and see where the engine size is described:
         
                  • 1397 cc. Continue with 1
                  • 1721 cc. Continue with 3
                  • 1986 cc. Continue with 2

 

1) 1397 cc; the B14 engine

 

The size of your engine is 1397 cc, what we describe as the B14 engine.
The car registration will also list the engine power.

  • If the power listed is 47 kW (64 hp) then your car will most likely have a Solex 32 SEIA carburettor.

    Now have another look at your car registration and look at the last 6 numbers of your VIN (chassisnumber).
     
      • If your car has a chassisnumber between ch 610000 en 810500, then your car should have a Solex 32 SEIA REN 796.
         
      • If your car has a chassisnumber between ch 810501 en 120999, then your car should either have a  Solex 32 SEIA REN 814 or a Solex 32 SEIA REN 828. You will have to take a look at the identification tag on your carburettor to make sure.
         

    To be absolutely sure which carburettor is currently installed on your car you will have to open the bonnet and take a look at the metal tag that is attached to your carburettor. It may differ from what is supposed to be on your car as someone may have changed your carburettor previously.

    To be absolutely sure which carburettor is currently installed on your car you will have to open the bonnet and take a look at the code stamped into the foot of the carburettor. It may differ from what is supposed to be on your car as someone may have changed your carburettor previously.
