Greetings, Can anyone please help, I need information on the adjustment and tuning of the Solex C35PHHE 10 as fitted to the Simca Rallye. Any information, or anyone who can help would be appreciated, thanks. Ian.
Presumably your carbs are the twins as fitted on the Rallye 2. These carbs (also fitted on the Lancia Fulvia) are notoriously fiddly/troublesome. I have a SIMCA Rallye 2 and a 1200S Bertone coupe both fitted with versions of these carbs and have been lucky in that they both work well. My brother's 1200S coupe on the other hand gave so much trouble with the 35PHH Solexes (flat spots and spitting fuel out) that he got a Mangoletsi manifold (still available) and fitted a pair of 40DCOE webers. How's your French.. I do have a French manual for the Rallye & coupe models and will gladly scan the pages on these carbs. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm the magazine Editor/press officer/ competition & modifications advisor for SIMCA Club UK. If you are at the Restoration Show at the NEC 22 to 24th March come and see us on out club stand... 5-662 Mick
