Solex carbs anyone have experience?

Recommended Posts

I came across a couple 40mm solex 1barrel carbs at a local vw performance shop and they needed a good rebuild, I got to thinking about making an intake for 2 of them or how about tripple carbs?I was also looking at some different weber options but I thought I would see what oppinions people have on the solex carbs? They look very simple any thoughts?

They are simple, but I don't think there are many jets available. Best bang for the buck is a weber 32/36.

Thanks all talk that link answered a couple of my question I had about putting dual custom split manifolds on a ea81.I have thought as Nug said that the carbs are fairly hard to get jets for and are fairly outdated. I have also looked at the weber 48mm IDF. I haven't seen anyone run these on a suby engine yet,but I am sure its been done.Thanks.
