    Is there such a thing as a genuine Solex and a knockoff Solex carburetor? I see prices from about $80 to $150 for them and I'm not sure if they are all the same item. Thanks

    Probably they can work some time, but how long?

    For my part, the best use for a Solex carburetor of any model, is as a paperweight or doorstop.
