    solex 34 pict 3 accelerator pump dripping

    I fitted a rebuilt solex 34 pict 3 and couldn't set the idle, because fuel is constantly dripping from the accelerator pump nozzle. Took the carb off again and confirmed that the little ball that's supposed to cut off the flow is still there. (Bottom left corner of this image )

    Anyone got any hints as to what else I can look at?

    Electric pump, too much pressure ?????

    No, it's a standard mechanical pump.

    Actually, thinking about that diagram, it's the ball valve on the right that's supposed to stop flow until the accelerator pump is actuated. In any case, it's there. I suppose that one possibility is that it's not seating correctly.
