Question I need to find a vacuum steered valve that regulates gas flow into the carb:Solex 4A1

Hi, Hoping that someone can tip me off as to where I can find a valve between the fuel pump and the carb and steers the gas amount into the carb (with a 'excess' return line to the tank). The part is connected to the carb thru a brass tube with nut and regulated by a small vacuum hose from the carb. I don't know the name but I believe the parts nr to be A0000720417. Alternatively, is it possible to adjust the idle/gas flow without having this part or by using another from another model that one modifies ? Hopeful for a helping hand in solving this, as the carb now gets way to much gas and it isn't possible to adjust the idle properly (really at all). fred
