Solex PII 40 carbs and VW manifold's question of interest...

Hi all,

Well I bought a sideshift tranny a while back and it came with a parts engine. The engine has Solex PII-40 carbs with 'stock' VW manifolds (PN 021 129 706N) and black spacers. The manifolds fit extremely well to the carbs (carbs are 40mm, manifolds are about 40.5mm). Also the linkage is of a stamped steel design....highish volume part? Anyone have any idea what these are from? They fit the T4 engine perfectly........

Early VW 411, European-spec 1.8L 914... Maybe.

Actually, the 914 used a pair of single-throat Solex 40 PSDIT carbs. I'm not certain what the PII-40 carbs are, but they might have come on the early (pre-injection) 411. I think the carb'ed Buses used Solex 36es, not 40s.

Or maybe they're aftermarket, but with nicely-made parts.

Hi Dave,

The manifolds have actual the VW raised logo and part number. They are definitely VW...unless someone went to great expense to use the VW logo on a cast part. The carbs are dual throats, like weber 40's. The manifolds are also dual throats. I am going to pick up a digital camera tonight so I will post some pics. I understand that 356 used these carbs too.....

Are the carbs a single barrel with two butterfly's?

I had a set of those on my car when I bought it.

Nevermind they were Solex: http://www.webercarburetors.com/ppw/html/aplication_guide/porsche.htm

Jim: You may have manifolds that VW made for us to race. They were made to take the 40 solex, that were run on the 912. Hmm. Strange they didn't race the D-Jet. I've seen the manifolds sell for $200.00. If you have no need for them myself and several racers in the SCCA are looking for them.
