Fuel and exhaust systems - carburettor models

The fuel system comprises a rear-mounted fuel tank, a mechanical diaphragm fuel pump and a downdraught carburettor.

The pump on 1.05 and 1.3 litre models is operated by means of a plunger activated by the camshaft, whilst on 1.6 and 1.8 litre models, it is operated directly by an eccentric on the intermediate shaft.

The air cleaner unit contains a renewable paper element and incorporates an automatic temperature control.

A conventional exhaust system is used on all models, being fitted in sections for ease of replacement.
