Wheels wanted
Renault alloy wheels from various 18, 20, Fuego models.They look like...
In Australia the Fuego was fitted with mags like this for a metric TRX tyre which are no longer made. They are for between a 13 and a 14 inch tyre.
So what I am looking for is a set of wheels (as pictured in the link) that are for tyres  measured in inches. I understand they may have come on turbos in 14" 
Manual choke conversion
I have just bought an immaculate Renault 18 Ts estate with no rust and no welding and very low mileage. I like everything about the car except the cold starting.It always starts but with a struggle. I don’t think the auto choke works very often. Do you know of a manual choke conversion? A company called cats and carbs might be able to help if I have a Weber DARA carb. I’m not sure does anyone know? All help appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation

Engine jam in Slovenia
Hello! I have just made an overhaul of the 1.4L engine (new pistons, liners, big&small end bearings, renewed head...) due to cracked No.4 piston.
After some minor problems, the engine started up and ran O.K. I rev it up to 1500-2000 RPM to provide for better lubrication. After readjusting valve clearances I took the car for a test ride, accelerating from 30 to 50 mph to help the rings seat. The car performed quite well except it dies when I release the throttle. Sometimes it jerks a bit before it goes out, sometimes it just dies suddenly.
Could it be that break-in has not fully occured or is it the carburettor idle jet or mixture?
Best regards,
Mitja Jakša, Slovenija
