Replacing Solex carb with Weber 32/34 DTRC

Post by Retrofrench »

Hi guys,

I've covered 2.5k trouble free in my recently purchased 1988 1.6 BX. Not bad for a 28 year old car. It runs well but a tad rich and the idle can be high after a long run for a few minutes. Being 28 years I would like to get the carb set up or stripped/rebuilt. However, being my daily driver I can't have it off the road. I've kindly been offered a weber 32/34 DTRC carb and am looking to have it stripped/rebuild and then I can hopefully pop it on and set it up. Can the weber carb be fitted with no modifications? Any other parts I need?
