So tonight Lewis came round to collect the Solex 34 PICT-5 from the van for refurbishment.



The lad works quick!





He’s hoping to have it cleaned and rebuilt over the next few days.

Just to update, the carb is back on the van and my friend Lewis has done a great job. It's in need of a little finetuning after a few miles, but already I'm seeing much better throttle response and improved fuel consumption. This tied in with all the new suspension components has really improved the drivability. The van is currently in the bodyshop to have a little TLC on the bodywork along with the new bumper and the solar charge kit being fitted. Hopefully will have it back next week better than ever
