Carburettor, 31-Pict-3, 1300-1600cc 12V (Rebuilt Original German Solex) **Special Order, 6 weeks once ordered**
The answer to many peoples prayers. We have now sourced genuine rebuilt and reconditioned Solex carburettors. So if you are looking to return your carburetion to how VW intended then look no further, these are the carburettors for you.
These are Rebuilt Original Solex Carburettors, only the originals are stamped "Made in W.Germany" - not to be confused with cheaper aftermarket copies such as modern Solex Brosol or Bocar
Each Original Genuine Solex carburettor is thoroughly degreased and washed. The carburettor is then stripped apart, the external ancillaries are sent away to be stripped and re zinc-coated and the old spindle bushes gently pressed out. The carburettors are then soda-blasted and washed once more to remove the minutest of residue. Once thoroughly clean new bronze spindle bushes are pressed in, and all rubbers and gaskets are replaced including membrane and rubber seals.
Each carb is then bench-tested, meaning you end up with is a superbly refurbished Original Genuine Solex carburettor set up and ready to be fine tuned to your specific engine.
This is the 31 Pict 3 carburettor originally fitted on Twin Port 1300cc engine, also suitable for 1300cc, 1500cc and 1600cc Single Port engines.
In our opinion this is the best small flange carburettor on the market. It has a wider throat than the 28 and 30 series carburettors, so will give a little bit more power. If you want a "fit and forget" carburettor for your single port engine then one of these rebuilt Solex carburettors really is the answer to your prayers.
