Solex 40 P II-4 Cross Section

The carburetor basically consists of the main body and cover, with a gasket separating the two. The main body contains two induction barrels, each having an independent idle and power metering system. The throttle shaft, which passes through both barrels, controls both throttle valves and carries a throttle return stop and throttle arm.
