I recently bought a brand new weber 34 ICH from Redline (kit K909)
It comes with vacuum hose to connect with ignition (hose is about 1 ft to short).
3/8 gas line ( solex has 1/4 inch) Fuel pump is also 1/4inch
I went for the weber because my solex was just worn out and the weber should be an easy replacement.
The original air-filter housing didn't fit over the weber, had to remove the rubber and make the opening a little bigger.
Then i noticed that my air-filter housing was sitting to high and was touching my hood. (the Weber is 1inch higher).
I connected the wire from the cut-off solenoid to 12V feeding wire that runs to the brake light switch.
I modified the air-filter housing and gain about 3/4 inch. enough to close my hood.
The engine starts really good and runs idle beautiful but when i drive it is holding back.
I noticed that it runs much better when i pull out my choke. I think the main jet is to small.
So what is sold as an easy replacement kit for the BMW 02 Solex is not easy at all!
Anyone has experience with the right jets for this carb?
In the documentation provided with the Weber it says that the max fuel pressure is 3.5PSI In the BMW specs i says that the mechanical pump gives 4.27PSI at 4000rpm.
