Re: Leaking Fuel Inlet- Solex 32 dual carbs.

The fitting? Are you talking about where the gas goes in to the carb? or
32PDSIT's on both of my squarebacks and you have me lost. 

I need a idle cutoff deal but instead of the but off it just screws in
and has 4 holes in the sides and one on the end. I need two of these i
cant find my carb rebuilt kit paper to tell you exactly what its called
but they make this piece with a solenoid and without i guess depending on
the year of the car that the carb came on or something
