Solex 34PICT-3 with choke removed Posted: Sun Jan 06, 2019 5:14 pm     Views: 36      Rating: Not rated

I often wonder about converting two stock 34 PICT-3 to dual carbs on a type 1 engine. You can find good cores at swap meets for $10, with the main criteria that the throttle shaft does not have excess play. Most aftermarket single-throat dual carbs don't use chokes, so that the original carb becomes much more compact. I removed the choke plate and shaft, then sawed off the choke housing with a fine blade hacksaw. Filed off the remaining cast marks. Will fill the choke shaft holes with gas tank kneading epoxy.
