'63 280SB Non Zenith Carb Kit

The carbs say Solex, but the only kit I can find is for 34-4 INAT Zenith Carburetors.

Does anyone know exactly what carb is on this car and where I can find a kit for it?

Thank you...

I have the Chiltons Manual for this year Mercedes and it does not list the 280SB, in fact it does not list any carburettor for 280 series cars. I gather most had fuel-injection. So it seems you have a somewhat unusual car. The carbs fitted to the other models are either Solex or Zenith but many different types and specs. I think you need to hunt down an original owners manual or workshop manual for your car. Or maybe call Mercedes, they should be able to help.
