Solex historic car carburettors

We review all types of Solex carburettors

we are engaged in the restoration and overhaul of carburetors for all cars and in particular for historic cars, having various vintage spare parts.
We are able to reconstruct, with specific high-precision equipment, components that are now unavailable such as:
shafts, butterflies, emulsifiers, diffusers, jets, seats, etc.
If necessary, we undertake to reconstruct missing or damaged spare parts in aluminum or zamak.

Solex was a mechanical company founded in 1906 by Maurice Goudard (1881-1948) and Marcel Mennesson (1884-1976), companions of the École Centrale de Paris [1], known for the manufacture of carburetors. The Solex name was also linked to the VéloSoleX mopeds and the Solex pneumatic micrometers, both of which were produced by companies that were offshoots of the main carburetor manufacturing business.

Solex was a mechanical company founded in 1906 by Maurice Goudard (1881-1948) and Marcel Mennesson (1884-1976), companions of the École Centrale de Paris, known for the manufacture of carburetors.

Solex carburettors have been used by various car manufacturers: Rolls-Royce Motors, Citroën, Volvo, Volkswagen, Porsche, BMW, Alfa Romeo and Mercedes Benz; under license, the Japanese Mikuni supplied Toyota, Suzuki, Yamaha and others.

With the advent of electronic injection, car manufacturers no longer required carburetors at the turn of the eighties and nineties.
