OOOOOHHHHHH!! she's wanting to run. I got a continuous low idle at 2 turns out.

I quickly shut it off because I noticed some fuel pooling under the bike. It was leaking at the joint between the left side manifold and muffler. I pulled the oil cap and didn't smell fuel in the oil. I'm wondering if all the pumping prior today filled the manifold with raw gas and it ran into the left side exhaust manifold because it leans to that side on the side stand?

EDIT: I pulled the spark plugs and turned the bike over. No fuel sprayed out of the head. It does drip out of the manifold still. I may let it sit outside in the sun for a while to try to evaporate what's in there.

Also, could the accelerator pump be a culprit? I believe that pumps raw fuel straight down the carb into the manifold. Maybe it's adjusted to high (if it's adjustable that is).

look at the accel pump linkage. Arm moving the pump may have several holes for linkage rod if it does it is adjustable that way.

Well the acellerator. Pump does put raw gas in manifold every twist ...so it could be the culprit....

If it isn't in the middle, try it there. If it is in the middle, move it to one extreme and then the other to see if there is a change, but the accel pump should only be pumping fuel in with a twist of the throttle.

I read the other active thread on a leaking solex. I'm going to add the other washer in my rebuild kit to lower the float height. That may be an issue or a combination of that and the accelerator pump.

Mine runs richer on the left side even on a center stand, but mine also isn't right still.

Hmmmm might be leaking air on that side some ....if the stock horns are being used ..try loosening the clamp and bolts on that side ....tighten to head first ...then tighten rubber intake ...might seal that side better

I put the extra washer on the float needle that came with the kit. My accel pump screw is set at the middle of that bracket. I'm also wondering now that maybe I pumped too much fuel into the manifold earlier when I was trying to get it to run. Either way, I will move that screw to the extreme end like the one in brianpa's post.

I cannot get my pump adjusted. First thing I noticed is that my adjuster is oriented the opposite way than yours is. Is this something I can reorient and adjust on the bike or should I remove the carb altogether?

I loosened the set screw but the adjuster does not move either direction. Is there a trick to adjust this?

That wasn't mine but rather a picture on the Web somewhere. For mine, I just lose ed the screw and slid it, but I think I read something about there being a different type of adjustment on the older model carbs, like a serrated teeth.

I shot too soon. Research showed that the adjuster is oriented a couple different ways depending on the model years of the solex. My adjuster was tight due to probably never being adjusted. I managed to adjust it to the lighter side and will test. I'm hoping it's not a faulty carb that is the issue. I really expected it to fire up immediately when I had it hooked up at first.

Have you considered the fuel shut off solenoid might be defective intermittently?

No, I never considered that. I tested it off the bike at 12v direct from the battery. It appeared to operate correctly but was only cycled on and off a handful of times.

If I eliminate it, what thread sizes plug can I use? Is there such a thing?
