Adjusting Solex Carb Idle speed

Post by kiwi »

Has anyone got a picture of the idle adjustment screw on a Solex Carb? Driving me nuts trying to remember where the adjuster is. I miss the webber I had fitted on my UK BXs.

Looked at the Haynes manual and section says to refer to another section which dont exist. Again I miss my older version of the Haynes manual. :cry:

Basically the 19TZS with Air Con is running at 1200 rpm ideal which is to high.

Funny you say that yes she is a bit of a pig to start in the cold or from cold.
That also seems to be when the starter/ignition starts playing up.
