Q: Are your parts suitable for modern fuel?

Q: How do i identify what carburettor i have?

A: With most Zenith, Solex & CD Stromberg carburettors the carburettor type is cast onto the body. In addition there should be a specification number on it which will confirm the application. This is either on an alloy tag attached to the carburettor or stamped on the top of the carburettor.

Q: How do i find the correct service or rebuild kit for my vehicle?

A: The easiest way to find the correct service or rebuild kit for your vehicle is by using the 'vehicle search' on our homepage. This way you are making sure you are selecting the right kit of parts rather than pickign a kit which is for that carburettor type but may not be suitable for your vehicle.

Q: Which needle adjusting tool do i require?

A: There are two different top adjustment needle tools used on CD carburettors that we manufacture. Earlier carburettors use the tool with the Aleen key head on it. Applications from 1977 onwards may employ a raised blade rather than an Allen key within the air valve.
