bx17TGD for sale

Post by david troughton » Fri Sep 02, 2016 12:28 pm

1991 TGD. White. 122000 miles.MOT til Jan 31 2017. Underneath solid. New rear spheres,oil and filters.
Needs work -
front inner wheel arches need welding.
O/S rear arm bearing needs renewing - it may need a replacement arm?
drivers seat fabric wore through badly (foam still in place).
O/S front window runner rotten so window wedged shut.
N/S back door connection to central locking gone.
front bumper side fixing dodgy.
dings to N/S front wheel arch and rear panel to front of rear wheel arch.
overall tatty but has a lovely engine. with 5 months MOT it is, I guess,what you might call a running project.
I have used this daily since July2012 and it has never let me down.
I just do not have the time, or space, or expertise to sort it out.
£200?
I am now the proud owner of a very nice 1.6meteor but am having trouble with the carb.
Is it still possible to obtain manual choke conversion kits for the Solex wax stat carbs? If so, from where.
Are there any other makes of car that use a sole manual choke that will drop into the bx.

My apologies; the car is situated in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

Hi david

The solex carbs work fine when set up well, you need to ensure its all clean and adjusted properly.
