Solex Carburetor 30 PAAI - alternatives?
« on: January 29, 2014, 05:33:36 PM »
Hi, does anyone have any suggestions where I can buy a solex 30 PAAI for my engine, or is there another readily available substitue like weber, zenith etc. that will work with my 1952 w187.

Thanks for any advice you can provide.

I don't know of a substitute, but perhaps other do.  They are available sometimes on Ebay and the Solex 30 PAAI was used for some of the Citroen Traction models.  Don't know what year or specific model. 

Are you missing the carburetor completely or do you have one that can be rebuilt?  If you have one that needs repair, you might try Bob's Service in Germany
