PostSubject: Carburettor service   Thu Mar 13, 2014 12:55 pm

Hi could anyone recommend a company that specializes in rebuilding Carbs to as new condition?

The Carb in question is VW a Solex from my 66 Beetle 1200

I'm looking for a specialist that can chemically clean and rebuild to original tolerances

Any suggestions ??????????

Thanks in advance Shake

Doesn't sound very bangernomical to me, but here's a link anyway.

See rebuild service section. It sounds like what you're looking for. They specifically mention working with Solex carbs, too.

More than some carb cleaner and a rebuild kit.

Well since the car cost me 500 and 70 to paint it I don't think spending a little on a carb rebuild makes it not Bangernomical ? The car in question has passed its mot with flying colors and I have no need to spend another penny on it for a long time, so I would say its well within the Banganomics ethos. Cheers

Must agree with you tech its sounds as though you have got a bargain and still got scope to spend if you need to, its ok saying get a rebuild kit and DIY but not all of us are able to do that. Good post

I think sometime we all have to bite the bullet and get a mechanic to help etc. and in view of what this has cost you which may I say well done I think its ok to spend a small amount and still be within the limits which lets be honest is anything these days upto 2000.Thumb
