Solex 34 Pict 3  reconditioned original carburettor

T1/T2 1600cc  211 129 031

As found fitted to a VW Bay window van engine which was in regular use. Repro carbs don't come near the quality of the Solex originals.

The following sequence of photo's shows the carb after complete disassembly and cleaning. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge.




 Throttle shaft bushes renewed (old Nylon type on the right). If you have ever noticed petrol drips from either side of the carb (especially on the throttle cable side) then the cross-shaft bushes have worn. This can also cause an air leak with resultant flat spot and makes tuning difficult. Silicon bronze bushes are fitted and regular lubrication as recommended by VW will prevent this problem happening again.




Rebuilt and ready for service - carburettor body is ultrasonically cleaned to remove internal fuel deposits, blast cleaned, levers/linkages media blasted and painted and then  reassembled using new Italian-made gaskets seals diaphragms and float needle valve. Jets checked and ultrasonically cleaned, choke and fuel cut-off operation checked, fuel float checked for leaks. Gasket flanges refaced and new manifold base gasket supplied.
