Does anyone have a website or the exact numbers of how many CFM's is a stock Solex carburetor capable of? I don't care if it's a 28, 30, 32, or 34. I'm just trying to figure out if I can use one stock solex carb off an aircooled car, I need about 194CFM's
Thanks http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Solex cfm ratings? (NAVI51)

Solex doesn't publish those specs. A 40mm DCOE can flow up to about 450 cfm. Even a 34mm pict is not going to make the number you want. It's a carb for a 50 hp engine. It would certainly start and run and be totally driveable, but don't expect much performance. For a carbed 8V your #1 choice is the Weber 32/36 available in several flavors.
