Figure 8 Seal (jet block assembly) solex 44phh

    Recommended Posts

    Im having a bit of trouble figuring out how to replace a figure 8 seal that is supposedly under the jet block assembly? This is for a Solex 44phh carburetor i believe is type 5. Apparently the figure 8 seal isn't listed on the main blow up diagram.

    To change the o-rings, the centre tower must be removed.  A screw on the bottom of the carb secures it.

    The o-rings seal the centre jet tower to the body. The idle and main circuit emulsions flow through the seals.

    Thanks for reply, 

    do you know which screws it is? Is it only one? Is it right underneath the area where the jet assembly block is? Do I need to remove the pump diaphragm to gain access? I think I remember seeing it but not sure

    If you remove the pump housing, one larger phillips (JIS) screw hold the jet holding block assembly in.  It's always a tough screw for me.  Probably my least favorite on the carbs.  When you install it again, put a tiny bit of grease on the threads.  Cheers

    Managed to get all the seals replaced, pretty easy for me to get the screws out and everything went smoothly. Thanks again!
