Tuning Tips

This is a page I intend to fill up with some basic maintenance, common problems and tips to help sort out the tuning of Solex/Mikuni sidedraughts. These are in addition to and come from the information contained in the Mikuni PHH Carburetor Service Manual and Toyota's service manuals that cover Solexes used in 2T-G and 18R-G powered models.

Here are pictures which identify the location of most of the parts used for and during  tuning, shown on an S5 type.  These parts and relative locations can be related back to all the other Solex/Mikuni types. A picture of a typical central balance arrangement found on 2T-Gs and 18R-Gs will come shortly.

There will be another couple of pages linked off this page with more tips and advice shortly as I re-learn how to add and edit the links.


Mikuni Jetting Table

When Mikuni sold the PHH40 and 44mm as a performance option they provided an initial jetting specification with each carburetor.  This is a good place to start when applying the Solex and Mikuni to performance or competition use.  Toyota and other manufacturers using the Solex had their own jetting tables which changed constantly, as required through the evolution of the motors using them.
