NOTICE

Many sought after parts are backordered these days. Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Main Jet for Solex, Kadron, Brosol, and Bocar Carburetor (sold per EACH)
Main Jet, Solex, Kadron, Brosol, and Bocar Carburetor

Often times jets have been drilled and/or reamed to a size different than stamped. If you can't be sure what size jets you are starting with, (i.e. if you don't have tool access to verify jet size), then save yourself a ton of time and troubleshooting by just buying new jets. Solex, Kadron, Brosol, and Bocar Main Jets are screwed into the bottom of the float bowl. Remove the carb top to change them out!

Item Features
Kadrons, should start with a 125 main, some modified engines will run best with a 130. You will not need larger than this unless you have installed larger than stock venturis into your Kadrons. There are a lot of guys using 135s and larger, but we feel that most of these guys are way too rich. If the engine runs better with larger than a 130 main, it's almost always because the engine is running too cool due to a broken thermostat, or someone has removed it. This means the engine is NEVER WARMED UP, and it needs to run richer to get enough fuel vaporized for combustion. Solex 34-3, Brosol 34-3, or Bocar 34-3, use a 125-130 main jet. Solex, Brosol, or Bocar 30/31 should use a 120-125 main jet. If you are at elevation, your engine will be happier with a smaller main jet. Go down "1" for every 1k' above sea level you are at. So Denver (5k') will be a "-5" from sea level tune, for example. The engine's idle will be based on the IDLE MIXTURE SCREW. It's possible to be idling too lean with a 70 idle jet, and too rich with a 45 idle jet, depending on how the idle mixture screw is adjusted. The idle jet size should be chosen based on how it DRIVES on the progression circuit, which are throttle conditions from off-idle to around 1/3 throttle. Obviously a Wideband or a 5-gas Analyzer are best for this, please read our Wideband Tuning article for more insight!
