Re: Mk1 Sq 4 Carb

Hi, Some years ago I also had the thread strip on my solex, I couldn’t identify the thread, I had wanted to use a recoil, I had a word with the turner at my workplace and he also couldn’t find a match, we did find that a 1/2” UNF has the same thread pitch (20 TPI) it is approximately 0.80mm bigger ...
