Can anyone tell me, how to set the float level in the carburettor?

Is there any data for it?

1990 must have been a magical year for Murena's.
My 2.2 was stored from that date till 2007
It was not in a bad state because it was stored in a heated shed.

I managed to find a nice replacement for the original speakers. A bit higher than the originals but hopefully there is enough space for them in the car.

I replaced the original speakers under the dash in the side wall. The new ones did not fit because they were slightly higher than the originals. I made a 8 mm spacer to lift them out a bit. There is an indentation in the metal side wall for the speaker and obviously you don't want to cut that to make room.
The only problem was that the left speaker required the foot rest to be cut a bit narrower to make room for the grill over the speaker.

Look at my post here: http://www.matrasport.dk/forum/index.php/topic,1421.0.html

Looking at your photos you may also have problems if it is a speaker in the door. There has to be room for the window to pass down.

I have just gone through your topic... I will see if the new speakers fit or not.
If not then I have new tripes in the house. Smiley But I bought them for bargain price, only 3€.

No big los if they don't  Wink
The problem with my higher powered speakers was the large magnet that didn't let them fit to the bottom of the cone shaped indentation in the wall. Looks like you will have the same problem.

Today my Murena passed the Old Timer qualification exam! Smiley
The car was a bit nervous this morning, one of the cylinders did not want to work...  Angry

The carburettor still not perfect, but my friend thinks the car only needs a long fast ride...  Grin
Unfortunately I have to wait, because it takes about 3-4 weeks to get the registration plate...  Undecided

Congratulations!

I am still working on mine to get it through the MOT. At the moment sounds like a tractor. Like you i need to adjust the carb and the ignition I think.

I sent the carb to a specialist, but I think he only changed the gaskets and seals from the repair kit...  Angry

So, it still needs some action. I have new sparking plugs in the car, but they may need some cleaning beacuse of the bad carb...

My 2.2 didn't drive for some time and before that only short rides for several years.
It took months to get all carbon out.
Driving it for some time made a significant difference.
Maybe you could use a cleaner, but driving will do the trick to.

Idiot mode on.
a very good medicin but not to good for the engine is to put some brake fluid in the carb.
It will smoke like hell but cleanburn the engine.
I am no fan of this kind of actions but it can help in worst cases.

Best regards Herman

Is it worth removing and cleaning the sparking plugs or a good ride could clean them?

I have another serious problem. When I washed the car, some water could get into the trunk at the left taillight... now I am drying the carpet...

I am thinking on applying some self adhesive sealing tape on the chassis where the rubber seal touches it. Hopefully it can solve the problem.
There is a sticky plastic tape what would be the best I think, but unfortunately I do not know the exact name of it. We call it "dog meat"      ...not easy to get some.

Original sparkplugs for Murena. very low prices.

The water in the back is in most cases because the rubber around the lights doesn't seal of good.
I used thick layer of mastic kit around it to make it watertight because new rubber didn't tackle the problem.
It is difficult to get it waterproof.
Also the rivets I replaced with nuts and bolts with the same kit.




The corners where the water is guided to the rear-panel license-plate needs attention to.



Nice and dry.

Thanks. Really cheap spark plug! Thanks for the tip.
But mine plugs are quite new, they have run less than 10km so they should be good.

This is what I meant (dog-meat), but I did not know the exact English name of it:

How are you doing with the new speakers you told us about earlier?

I did not have time to deal with them. As the car was fully retrimmed, I should cut new holes for the speakers on the carpet so I could not check easily if they fit or not. There was a lot to do on the car so I have not installed the radio yet now there is a black blanking plate on the dash.

And I have not got any answer from the steering wheel specialist for my mail.  Angry
I managed to buy a Momo Corse which needs new leather, hopefully I will get it in some days. Then I will contact him...
