Hey Karstern!! welcome, and congratulations with your new car!!.
For the carb issues , get in touch with Mr.Diensen... he lives in Copenhagen,is extremely friendly, and have messed quite a bit with his carburettor... add to this, that he is something of a geek, so if he cannot do the "physical" part of the operation, he can surely explain to you how it SHOULD be done Tongue...

Welcome, Karsten.
Congratulations on the car!!
The "electrical device" and vacuum hose you mention is the hot air inlet swtich over mechanism which I have messed with as discussed here: http://www.matrasport.dk/forum/index.php?topic=604.0
Feel free to call me if you think I can help sort out the hoses - ome phone is 44491881
The geek thing is - i'm afraid - correct!

Looks like a nice garage you have there for your car Smiley

What carb is it, by the way? Do you know why the original was replaced?

The Solex'es may be a little difficult to get spares for (gaskets are easy enough), so some have replaced the Solex with a similar Weber - and generally with good results. If it runs okay, I don't think you should replace it, and even if it does'nt, we can check the jets and venturis to see if they are the right size and it may just need a good cleaning and a set of new gaskets.

it is some german dobble carburator....not a weber.......i have already changet to the original solex .but i thougt i could just put on the carb on existing manifold..but no .even if the manifold were similar ,with same numbers on it,the pins were about 5 mm out of messure..so i had to change the manifold as wel..done . it runs much  smother now.
here is a pick of the strange manifold. the bolts are ofset by 5 mm.....

Good to hear it's running better now! Your manifold looks absolutely standard, but it could have been modified to accomodate the replacement carburettor? I have a spare manifold here in my basement if you want to compare.

I'm really looking forward to see your car running! Smiley It's wonderful to hear about restorations like what you have done!
