Today I got an idea and checked the beetle Solexes for the same bolt as I had a thought they might be the same as I had read somewhere that Zenith carbs use some same parts as Solexes. Well, even the venturis in these Zeniths says Solex... :)
Anyways the bolts were identical so I took 3 bolts from a scrap Solex to replace the ones I've managed to loose during the 3 years I've restored this first one...

I started the restoration of this Zenith 40 TIN way back in 2008 but due to some "backfiring" when I tried to remove the third idle mixture needle. It broke in half leaving the needletip in the hole... Got it drilled out a few years ago but never got back into trying to fix the threads until this week. Tested using JB-Weld and it worked great! Now the carb have 3 workin idlemixture needles again!..
Nyt siinä on uudet kierteet JB-Weldin avulla..
