So, the Solex Carburetor Working Circuits are,
Solex Carburetor Starting Circuit
Solex Carburetor Normal Running Circuit
At normal running speed, starting circuit is closed and the throttle valve is opened.
The normal running circuit consists of the main jet which receives the petrol through the second passage. This is done from the float chamber as the throttle valve is opened sufficiently. The air is drawn through the venturi where the petrol mixes up with it. Which forms a suitable mixture for the normal running of the engine.
In this case, only throttle valve governed the air-fuel ratio.
Solex Carburetor Accelerating Circuit
The engine requires an extra rich mixture, during acceleration period.
To obtain an extra rich mixture, the fuel is pumped under pressure into the main air passage.
The diaphragm pump is used to create pressure, which is actuated by a lever connected to the accelerator.
The pump sucks the petrol from the float chamber through the pump valve. Then forces it through a third passage into the main passage through an injector above the venturi of the carburetor.
Solex Carburetor Idling and Slow Running Circuit
During the idling operation, the throttle valve is kept closed. While an engine receives the mixture through a port opening below the throttle valve. Where area can be varied by an idle adjusting screw according to the need of the engine.
The petrol is supplied to a pilot petrol jet from the main jet fuel circuit through a fourth passage and the air from a pilot air jet.
The petrol and air thus supplied mix up in the idle passage. Then go to a port situated below the throttle valve from where the mixture is sucked into an engine.
