Bits are rapidly getting harder to get for these - I'm sure I've seen one of those things on the web recently but can't find it now. Couldn't tell you what it's called, sorry - plastic thingy under the distributor cap is what I call it! It's worth going to a motor factors and asking - I got a distributor cap and rotor arm from E&M Factors in Aberystwyth from stock. You never know what they might have on the shelf.

This: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/390990354147 is for a Renault 11 which uses the same engine, so will probably fit. Is yours missing or just broken? If it's broken you should be able to compare it to the photo. There's a bit missing from mine but it doesn't affect it at all so if it works don't worry.

The choke cable bit - do you mean on the carburettor? If so, there's a guy (Eric) who claims to have every carburettor spare part: http://www.carburettorspecialists.com/ His website is hopelessly out of date and impossible to navigate so you have to phone him. He supplied me with a repair kit and idle jet for the Solex 35SEIA on mine - expensive but worth it. I'd recommend him.

Hope this helps,
Richard.

Oppse I missed the word Shield out in the above reply, according to the workshop manual its called "the Rotor arm shield".

(To be 100% honest I needed to spell check "Shield" lol)
