crburetor identification for rebuild it
« on: October 14, 2014, 09:06:48 PM »
1953 w136 170S carburetor leaks all over the place - need to rebuild
BUT....I can't find out any information about which one it is?????
It says 'SOLEX' and Made in Germany but doesn't list any model numbers, except for inside the throat
Where again it says 'SOLEX' and has the following numbers, if I read them correctly: 26-30R-25.
It is a single barrel with a L shaped fuel intake, one side of which is plugged, as if to be used in another application.

Kits seem to be available, but I am not sure which carburetor I have so don't know which kit to buy?????

Help me please,...I am drowning here,...in gasoline.   Seems to be leaking from the accelerator pump.

It should be a 32 PBJC.

CraigS,

Thanks - I pretty sure that the one, although mine has a different inlet style from two possible directions, bowl top.

I just ordered the kit.

Everything else looks the same.
