Solex carburetors - where can I get the tuned, please?

  1. This I do know:

    Taking the...
    He is ....ed drunk

    As well as many uses that are very similar.

    But there is no end to the social shock and awe when Americans refer to one of these in polite company when in the UK.


    Best of luck with your carbs. I will soon be fitting an original set of solex carbs. I am daunted...

  4. There's no end of fun with this one, one UK slang word for a cigarette really does not compute in the US.
     
  5. I could go on for a long time listing some of my favorites. What I might get wrong is the level of impact some expressions have...like would you say them in polite company or in front of children. This varies a lot too. I am also a fluent French speaker and have friends from both Quebec and Canada. Same sorts of differences in slang. I have made some serious faux pas.

  11. Hi @zedders - hopefully that's all they need.

    Thanks for everyone's help :)
     
  12. Not being funny Penny but it would pay you to learn a bit about carb float height and fuel pressure. It would not be umcommon to find one of these was too high and though the carbs correctly jetted it's still chucking too much fuel through the engine.
