Hi all, I'd be interested to find out part numbers for the dizzy cap and rotor arm I have in my UK-built '54 Renault 750 (basically a UK assembled 4CV with some local content in it). The French cars have the SEV Junior dizzy from what I've read, but mine has a Delco-Remy unit in it and I'm curious to find out the part numbers, and also whether any new parts are out there?

(Later 4CVs appear to have Ducellier ignition parts, perhaps similar to those in the Dauphine).

thanks, RJ

A number of years ago I was looking for Delco Remy parts for my Chrysler. I came across an internet site that specialised in old D/R parts. I am almost certain it was in Canada. I cannot find it now, but perhaps a North American member of OCC has a better knowledge than I.

Its weird being the same age as old people.
You are either part of the problem or part of the solution

Curiously the cap for example appears to be shared with that fitted to late 20s/early 30s Plymouths, Dodges etc going from that part number and looking on ebay. The DB203 condenser is fitted to many Vauxhalls and Bedfords of the 1950s.

Looking at distributor caps in a Remax catalogue, it list a number of US 20/30’s vehicle manufacturers (ES 25 Top line)
