Having read the Solex 40+ page pdf, I can't see any info regarding setting the float. I have a Solex C40PAAI. One thing I have read elsewhere is to install a sight glass or a level indicator to check the fuel without removing the top. Advice re fuel level welcome. Richard

Fulvia solex carbs are 19mm+-1mm measured from the top of the float chamber bowl casting edge. The most accurate way to do this is to access the emulsion tube and remove it and measure with a thin glass tube inserted (or a tie wrap) and measure the fuel level from that datum. Not sure if the same mechanism can be used for the 40

dont take top of float chamber off as you will get a false reading

Thanks, another job is to remove and clean emulsion tubes incase the air holes are blocked. Is there a preferred method anyone? Richard

A week in paint thinners did wonders with mine.
