B200K Renix Vacuum Advance - Manifold/Carb Connection?

Post by SteveP » 07 Nov 2016 02:39 pm

When reassembling the GLS fitted with a B200K engine and original Solex 34/34 carb I noticed that the Renix vacuum hose was routed down the side of the airbox and not connected to anything. Does anyone know where it is actually supposed to connect to? I've looked around the carb and may be blind (likely) but haven't been able to see where it's supposed to go.

It has a change up indicator if that makes any difference. I've had a look at the green books on here but can't seem to find any definitive info.

There is a hose that goes nowhere in that department but I will check on my '88 tomorrow.

I feel I have answered this before, but I think it is under the manifold on the LHS of the carb looking from the renix.

Yeah, I couldn't see it there - perhaps blind, will double check! Thanks bogbasic!

Not sure if this is still needed, but its the one closest to the idle solenoid.

Brilliant, thank you! I don't think it's ever been connected under my ownership, suspect the previous owner had been fiddling...
