What kind of solexes?Fueling.
the FAQ states that the Carter rotary pump is a good choice but in any builds and threads i find with solex carbs it seems people like to use aftermarket pumps with a regulator set around 10PSI. the carter pump is around 4psi. will the carter pump be a solid choice and the higher pressure in other systems are to over come the lack of volume?
Most recommend 2.75 to 4.5 for the mikuni which is solex. at 10psi, you will blow every seal out.
No carb I know of takes 10. 3psi will work in all but the most outrageous race engines.
Pull the factory pump. Your rabbit has only one pump outside the tank. It runs at 80psi. Needs to go. Wire your new pump anyway you like. Relay or straight switch, as long as you remember to shut it of. Stock wiring will work.as far as the factory pump goes just bypass it all, leave the intake pump operational, and run a relay to the new pump? (mostly because the factory wiring is pretty hacked on this car)
Inline low pressure filter, pre regulator in engine compartment. Cheap.for a filter can just any type of inline universal filter be used? just cap the return
stock ignition will work, but as you note, there will be no advance because you will lack port vacuum. Msd timing computer(8980?) to a 6al box combined with the stock icu, or one of their newer offerings(features combined into one unit) will do the trick.ignition.
right now factory distributer is in place, with a MSD blaster coil. will this be enough or should after market ignition be installed? as far as the factory vacuum advance goes I've heard on duel draft setups you cant run vacuum advance.
Ha! Get everything else set up and re-read the FAQ's and then come back. Get the book for the carbs you have.tuning.
yea, no clue. there is a local guy who is known for tuning air cooled's. so we will try to see how he can help us out. but id like to have the car ready to go before taking it to some one. but just for the sake of is what are some good links to read up on?
the carbs came off of a running 8v. they are compel with everything. so what are the chances that damage will happen if we do try and fire it and mess with it our selves?
