Unusual piece for sale but I don't know what it is!

Price: $10
Location: Victoria BC


Description:

Someone told me what this is. But I've forgotten! It certainly didn't fit into my old NK.

 

Anyhow I was advised that the mystery part could be worth $75 or more (it is new) but I'd be happy to let it for for $10 USD plus shipping from Canada. Somebody must have a use for it! 
 

A caveat: shipping to the States tends to be pricey except when using the lowest class of service.

Looks like an electronic idle cut off valve from a 2 barrel  Solex     but may fit other carbs        You may want to test it out to make sure that it is working       Hook up a 12V power to the connector and then ground the switch itself to the engine   It should click if working

Not specific to 1502       more like late 73 to 76

 

Thanks, Rick

So, I think that there were, possibly, three versions (three different specs for these). They first appeared on the single-barrel Solexes (first photo — part number no longer shown on RealOEM). And although only one version is shown with the two barrel Solex (second photo), when I last replaced the valve on my ‘76 — let’s call it 2011-12 — there were two versions listed for two-barrel Solexes in the parts catalogue — probably one for the ‘76 49-state versions and a different version for everything else.

 

And I would have sworn they listed for close to $300 each at that time. My sense is that they found a different supplier and discontinued one version — 49-state, since it’s less… generic?

 

Is there a part number on the valve?

 

Regards,

 

Steve

IMG_7032.jpeg.18068c1f69f18178fb9cb3be17294982.jpegOk I'm going to send a few pics and let the experts figure it out.

 

The only reason I'm asking $10

plus the shipping cost is to cover the interminable amount of time I'll have to spend at my local Canadian post office, converting CDN to USD, dealing with agents that act annoyed when they have to serve a customer etc etc

 

I got the part for free in a bag of other stuff I ordered. Someone must have left it there by mistake!IMG_7031.thumb.jpeg.e3cc546ef6a32e717e7c0523fc0d1bf8.jpegIMG_7029.thumb.jpeg.7f9d83d7a146b6a7ab92d2fc3bba7932.jpegIMG_7028.thumb.jpeg.54abedc01c86ed3d6ca81dc4af584e0a.jpegIMG_7027.thumb.jpeg.5afe29998c45743e95a91d62fac6d285.jpeg

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
