Tagora SX injection on leboncoin

Postby Uktagorasx » 06.03.2019, 14:35

Tagora SX on Leboncoin fitted with k-jetronic and 390 SX alloys as opposed to the 'optional' 365 alloys?
In the UK we only got 365 alloys, has anyone ever come across a set of 390's and how hard would it be to get a set?
There is an old advert of a blue sx in a field that looks like its got bigger wheels than I'm used to seeing and I thought the photo had been doctored but maybe it had the bigger 390 wheels?

I don't think the SX style wheels were made in 390. Never seen or heard of that, not in the parts catalog either.
I think the seller means that he installed 220/55 365 instead of original 210/65 365, it looks like that.

390 wheels??? Never seen or heard of those before, surely he's got that wrong. Can't say they look any larger in the photos. Nice clean car though, shame it's been converted to run fuel injection, makes it seem a little less special.

390 won't fit. You must have 365. Are you Manchester United fan, they won yesterday ;)

Goodnight. Out of technical curiosity With the K-Jetronic get the same power (CV) as with the two Weber? Advantage: I suppose it consumes less, but will the Tag be smoother? I personally believe that the injection removes charm from the Tag. In Spain SX and DT went with 210/65 R365. I never saw that measure. In the catalogs it does not appear as an option.

The SX engine is unique and very unusual. Its specification is part of its attraction, with the twin Webers and tubular headers. Most cars of the era were going to injection so the SX was a real anomaly with this setup. I wonder if it has had a Peugeot 604 or Volvo engine transplant?

I totally agree with you. The SX engine is unique for sound, power and configuration.

Hi guys!

I know the seller. The car had trouble with the carburetors and replaced them by injection.

The 390 wheels did exist! ;) When the first Tagoras were built, the TRX AS 365 were not ready yet so they moulded 390 wheels meanwhile.

Pour rebondir sur la réponse de Joris, la première Tagora SX exposée au Salon de Paris et dans les brochures était bien montée avec des 390 TRX (avec le 2,2L et non le 2,7L également...). Mais j'ignorais que d'autres Tagora avaient disposé de ces jantes.

I bet those 390 wheels are difficult/ impossible to find.

I'm on the hunt for some now, they look so much better than the 365's !
