Hello everyone, I have a 1986 Renault 5 which is fitted with a solex 32 BIS 836 carbuettor, I think this is the same as some renault 4's, anyway, I noticed he was running a bit rich and thought to adjust the mixture and idle screws, I almost fell over when I discovered the mixture screw was missing! I bought a Solex 32 DIS screw from e-bay as they all seemed to be those kind, but it's too large a diameter and won't wind in properly. I have no idea what the original screw looks like and can't find any anywhere, I've tried a couple of carb refurbishers but not getting anywhere, the service kits don't seem to have mixture screws in them, I'd really appreciate some help
in finding a screw or a suitable alternative remedy, any suggestions really appreciated.
Many thanks
Shirley
