Restored matched pair of Solex C40 ADDHE carburetors for Alfa Romeo 2000 - 115.48.
This is a vintage set of 2 Solex C.40 ADDHE carburettors which has been lovingly restored to their former glory.
As you can see in the pictures, they have been disassembled , cleaned and reassembled using new parts where required.
The work was carried out to our order by the best craftsmen that we know and consequently they have the "lighttight" butterfly valves, ensuring smooth idling.
These carbs even still have their original aluminium "tags".
These tags read 115.48.04.010.00 and 115.48.04.011.00 which allows us to determine that they were produced for 1983-and-later Alfa Romeo 2000's (the 115.48 was the Alfa Romeo Spider 2000.
This is also confirmed by the fact that the forward carburetor has a connection for a vacuum-feed for the distributor.
These carbs currently have the following basic set-up which can not be altered:
- Type: C40 ADDHE 115.48
- Butterfly valves: 10
- Air bleed screws: No
- Progression holes: 5
- Vacuum connection: Yes
Furthermore they currently have the following flexible set-up:
- Chokes: 32 mm
- Main jet and emulsion tube: 155
- Idle jet: 55
- Pump jet volume: 0.7, vertical
There is only 1 set available.
Although these carburetors were produced for Alfa Romeo, they can of course be used on other makes of engines, provided a suitable inlet manifold is used.
In that case, it might be required that the car is tested and fine-tuned on a rolling road.
These carburettors, just like any other "new" carburetor, will require fine tuning once on your engine. Balance screws, mixtures screw and fuel banjos need to be adjusted. Please take this into account when ordering these carburettors.
