Hi Brian, I would like to check the compression on my 3800 using a pressure gauge, can you tell me what the pressure should read for an engine in good condition? Regards Gavin

Thank you so much for the welcome, Brian, it is great to be part of a friendly club. I don't have a Solex as yet, but will enjoy reading all the posts and joining in the forum in due course. Cheers all, Giles

Thank You for the invite to the forums.. As a first time solex owner the technical library and the forum at this site is a gold mine of information.
When I split my engine and found that the piston was stuck, the two ballbearings didn't rotate and then found out the previous owner had not been so careful to get all the spacers and other things back in the right place after his repair attempt I had the feeling that I had got me a task bigger than I managed. But after an hour or two on this site I am confident that next summer I will get a lot of fun riding my 2200.

Thanks for the welcome Brian, I couldn't reply before because there was no link in the email.
At the moment the bike's in various bits so wouldn't look great in a photo but if I get it going I'll get a photo up.
It came to me seized so so far I've replaced the piston and barrels. I tried to get it started but there was no petrol on the plug so took apart the fuel system and felt that the pump was faulty. I've now replaced the pump but still can't get it started so I'm currently scratching my head!

Hi all I have a 1975, 5000 which starts great but when it is warm needs half choke to keep it on full throttle, if you put choke of then it is very flat and hesitant .
on half choke it runs great
Can you please advise
