Matching the carburetor with the fuel system
« on: June 22, 2009, 06:22:22 AM »
Hello everyone,
I am still trying to sort out the parts for my 1950 170V. 
I know the carburetor is Solex but a different model than wha tit should be.  The fuel tank was replaced with a newer model and put to the back of the car.  As a result there is a fuel pump (I think???) attached to the engine block.  I haven't seen this part in any other model pictures and documents.  I can't match the carburetor, air filter and the fuel pump.
Is there a list of parts for 1950 170V?
Can anybody identify this part?  Is this originally suppose to be on the engine block? 
Thank you.

It looks as though your 170V engine was replaced with a 170S engine.  This means you are looking for a carburetor and air filter utilized on the 170S.

The carburetor is a Solex 32 PBJC and the filter is a Mann & Hummel 439-18

John, thank you for the information about the parts.  I checked the ones from this engine they are a perfect match.
However, this means I have to find a new carburetor, as well as a new timing gear cover.
I talked to the previous owner of the car and he said at that time he thought that the front placed fuel tank was very dangerous and he replaced it with rear placed tank from a 170 he bought as a spare part supply.
He must have exchanged the carburetor, fuel tank as well as the fuel pump with the timing gear cover to house the fuel pump.
Can timing gear covers be exchanged between 170V and 170S?
I can also barely read the text 170V on the engine tag as well as the casting date on the engine is 1949.
All of the above makes me think that the engine is the correct model for this chassis.
Thank you.
