New Replacement Solex Carburetor – Part#: 923808
Q: Does this carburetor have any kind of filter built in it?
- A: If you have a rusty fuel tank I would also buy part number: 8126312
Q: Can I get just the float for this carb? My float fills with gas and sinks.
- A: I would do the water test on it. Place it in a glass of water and see where the bubbles are coming out. Solder the hole.
Q: What type of modifications are need for the Solex carb to fit my 52 M38A1?
- A: I would get part number: 809785 to make the 90 degree bend
Q: What is the normal level of fuel in a fuel pump bowl on a F head CJ?
- A: Fuel pump fill levels vary. Some fill up some remain low. The big thing is that your fuel pump only puts out 2-1/2 pounds pressure.
Q: I just bought a 1965 Kaiser. The problem is it won’t idle without the choke fully closed. Is the carb worn out??? I live in a warm climate, Houston.
- A: It’s tough to say for sure. You should try adjusting your timing and check your fuel pressure if is rough idle. You may need a new carb.
Q: My 1960 CJ-5 with a Carter YF carb, has a worn out throttle linkage at the carburetor. Does this Solex come with the linkage?
- A: Yes there are complete carburetors.
Q: Just bought a CJ-3A with this carb on it. Should I buy the rebuild kit or the correct CJ-3A carb? Is there a problem running this carb on the GO-Devil?
- A: Either someone has swapped your motor or modified the manifold or base of the carb. Please call us toll free. We can ask you some questions and help out.
Q: I was wondering if this carburetor had any kind of warranty with it?
- A: We give a 90 day warranty on these.
Q: Does this carb fit my 1960 FC-150 with F head 4 cyl. ?
- A: The FC150 used a different carburetor. I have heard of people making them work though with modification.
Q: Is this carb compatible w/ E10 unleaded?
- A: They are best to use with 87 pump.
Q: Will this carburetor accommodate the second cable from the dash mounted pull throttle in an M38A1?
- A: These do not use a throttle cable.
Q: Will this carb handle the pressure from the mechanical fuel pump or does it need a fuel pressure regulator in the line?
- A: Yes. You should be at a max of 2.5 pounds of pressure from your mechanical pump. There should be a spacer plate between the engine and pump.
Q: I have to pour fuel into the carb to start when cold. Jeep also stumbles badly when cold. It seems as though the choke doesn’t create enough rich mixture. The accelerator pump is working as I can see fuel come out the nozzle when the throttle opened but the engine will not start even after pumping throttle. I even put a electric pump on thinking the carb was draining after shutting off. Can the solex be adjusted to make it run more rich?
- A: There is an adjustment screw at the base to change the mixture.
Q: What level of fuel pressure do you need to have for this carburetor?
- A: You should have it between 1-3/4 and 4 max per the manual.
Q: What is the factory setting on the idle mixer screw and the isle speed screw. I mess it up and I can’t find the right idle. It keeps going dead?!?
- A: I believe you turn it all the way in then turn out 1.5 turns.
Q: I have a 1965 CJ-5 with a hurricane 4 motor. When I start the motor it runs smooth then when I give it gas it cuts out real bad, runs real rich, rebuilt carb didn’t help, still runs rough. Do I need a new carb?
- A: Could be a lot of things. I would try to lean the idle screw, advance your distributor a bit, and check your fuel pressure.
