Needle Valve size for Solex ADDHE carbs

Hi All
I am a new member to this forum having recently bought a 1984 Fiat Strada 130TC Abarth. I noticed that you can get Solex ADDHE caburettor rebuild kits on ebay. The trouble is you have to specify the needle valve size when ordering (either 1.6 or 1.8, presumably mm). I wouldn't have a clue what size to order, and the Haynes manual is no help either. Does anyone out there know the correct size?
Cheers

Might be worth removing your current one to see if it's stamped with the current size, they often are.

130TC Solex carbs are not intended to be rebuildable like Webers are. You're on your own there. Good luck

Re: Needle Valve size for Solex ADDHE carbs

I have found information online about rebuilding Solex ADDHE carbs. My carbs are running fine at the moment, I just thought I'd get a couple of rebuild kits in case I need them in the future. They are only US$17 each and they ship world wide. The guy also sells rebuilt Weber DCOEs for US$495 a pair. May that is a better way to go?
