    Default 18rg tuners in Melbourne (solex's)

    Does anyone know of someone who is good at tuning the Solox carbys on an 18RG, now that Sean Maloney is retired??

    Or does anyone on the forums know how to tune them and like some extra cash? I've rebuilt the rest of the engine but getting those Solex's right is a pain.

    Hey mate,

    I used to get my webers tuned at this old school guy on High Street Thornbury, he tuned them better than anyone has done with a dyno. He is an old italian bloke who had the shop past on from his dad and has been eating and breathing all sorts of carbies since he was a tadpole.

    His name is Peter, Thronbury Carburettor and EFI. 9480 2108

    Good luck with it.

    Jeremy

    Theres also a joint called Nissco in Bayswater, they are generally a Nissan/Datsun shop but they know Webers etc. inside out. They have a dyno in house and have done a good job on a few cars belonging to mates of mine.
    Good luck!
