I have a Bugatti replica with 1973 VW Super Beetle engine and has a Solex C34TCIC/13 2-barrel carburetor on it. I cannot find any adjustment screws on it to adjust air mixture. Cannot get a good idle and seems to run way too rich. No heat tubes going to the manifold either since it has a custom exhaust . Could this be the whole problem? Still seems like this carburetor should have adjusting screws on it? Thanks for any help. Gary

Google turns up that it's for a 914 Porsche. Maybe a Porsche site or the 914 section here might turn up more info.

Here's a link to a couple old threads on here:

Doesn't look like they're much help.

You can thank me later...

Very Happy
