What carburetor model does the XU5 2C engine have?

Post by Jugostran »

Hey all!
So, I am getting ready to rebuild the Solex carburetor in my early 1989 BX 16 TRS. Trouble is, I don't know the exact model of the carburetor. That is why I am asking this here so I don't end up with the wrong rebuild kit.
The engine in the 16 TRS is the XU5 2C with 68/69 kw.
Thanks in advance for your answers!

I think it's either a Solex 32/34 Z1 or a Weber 32/34. IIRC Weber models have a tag that's secured by one of the carb lid screws which contains the serial number which you can use to determine jetting and other parameters. I have one going spare.
