Thread: Series 2a Solex Choke Cable

  1. #1

    Default Series 2a Solex Choke Cable

    New Series 2a owner here. I'm a couple weeks into this and I'm loving having this thing as my daily driver. However, it needs some love.

    My truck has the Solex carb. The choke cable is trashed and inoperable. However, I'm not seeing a direct link to a replacement part for this carb anywhere.

    However, looking at the cable for the Series 3 with a Zenith, we've got about the right length. Is there any reason why this cable wouldn't work on a LHD Series 2a with a Solex?

    Should work fine, make the length correct, secure at carb, should work.

    I figured as much. Just needed a quick sanity check. Thanks!

    My only point is that the S3 cable will not operate the choke warning light switch fitted to a S2A with a Zenith , it would need the S3 switch RTC5816 should you want to retain the function

    Good point, but this is a S2A with a Solex. I'm still figuring out the lights on the dash, but I don't think there is a choke warning light.
