    Re: Solex float level tools

    Float level needs to be 20 on the older ones (typical S1), and 19 on the younger ones (S2/3 type). Both + or - 1mm. For some reason Solex / Lancia changed it in S2/3 carbs (it may have been related to the fuel return line of the S2/3). So 22mm is a bit low...

    If you like, you can gently bend the arms of the float a tiny bit upward to increase the fuel level. Don't overdo it, before you know you are wildly oscillating between much too high and then back much too low again. It is rather sensitive, the bending of the arms.

    Best place to bend is where the central arm splits into the two separate arms.

    Nice cheap trick with the BIC and the electrical terminal block contact
