I have what appear to be a good set of solex's on my 64 SC motor(1720 kit,mild cam, light flywheel,pertronix). The 2 sides are balanced at all rpmsand it idles at 1000 real nice. As I go thru the gears it has asignificant carburation stutter untill i nurse it up to a higher rpm then itclears out. I think (thats a dangerous word for someone like me who isquilty of reading a lot but cant seems to get the mechanix correct) that theaccellerator pump is not providing enough gas. Should the pump supply asteady stream as rpm increase, a spirt as rpm increase then immediately dieout (this is what it seems to do), or what? If I just baby the motor up in rpms the stuttering does not seem to beas intense. Is rebuilding these carbs best left to the experts or can anamatuer do it?Thanks as alwaysJimmy60 Cabriolet96 Ford F350 Powerstroke66 Mustang 28985 Jag XJ665 BSA Rocket Lightning
The accl. pump only delivers when the throttle is opening. The quantity forthe Solex is .55 to .65 cc per 2 full strokes. It will squirt for a fewseconds and then stop. Check for adequate quantity and see if it issensitive to motion. If you move the linkage slowly it still should squirt.Sincerely,Alan,The Stable, San Francisco
