The Solex 34-34 Z1 carburettor is a downdraught progressive twin-venturi instrument. The throttle linkages are arranged so that the secondary throttle valve will not start to open until the primary valve is about two-thirds open, but at full throttle both valves are fully open. The choke control is either automatic or manual. On some early models a carburettor cooling system was fitted which allows the radiator cooling fan to run for a maximum of 12 minutes after the engine has been switched off.

The Weber 34TLP carburettor is a single choke downdraught type instrument fitted with a manual choke.
