Hi guys. Does anyone know about zenith ndix 32 made in France? It looks like a single carb setup. It does not have the date on the side like the po10 it has a 69/51 where the po10 or the po19 would be. Iíve only seen them from Germany so wondering what this was for?

Must be the same carb but I don't think they ran on the Citroens or Peugeots back in 69 or so. Maybe they were aftermarket, Does it have a crossover base like the P010's or is it a solid base like the Porsche Zeniths?
What size Venturi's You can read them with a flashlight from the top. Found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zenith_Carburettor_Company_(British) Could Probably run it on a Ford!

Yeah dan there little 21 vents the tb is the same crossover style but the mounting bolt holes are oval like it could mount on different size intakes. Has a cool tag on it to Iíll look for the number.

The P010 and Porsche Zeniths are usually 24mm venturi. And are a bit too much carb as a single on a plenum manifold on a 1600 VW engine. 21mm is interesting. That's about right for a 36horse VW engine. The oval would probably let them bolt on to a DCNF or a Holley manifold too.

In France NDIXes were used in french Fords (and subsequent Ford-based Simcas)...which ran a V8 flathead by the way, some Panhards also used them I think

pretty versatile carburettor, I have one that came originally from a DKW Munga, it has a pretty nifty articulated float unlike the regular ones, which must be the bomb when bouncing around off road
