1971 114.011 potential buy; Carb problems

Hello Vintage lovers,

I am considering buying a gas W114 250 that has the M130 with Zenith dual INAT carbs. Body is pretty good with very minor rust and tires are good. However parts are missing from the carbs.
The story is that the previous owner was tinkering with it, probably trying to get the adjustment right but since passed on.. and ofcourse we know dead men tell no tales

I am considering buying this car to complement my W115 diesel 220d as i love this body style.

I want to have an idea of what to do with the carbs BEFORE I buy the car. Would the Solex phh44 fit in this engine? i know they used both solex and zeniths in the 114 before fuel injection. There is a guy who has two of them for sale on this forum out of bulgaria.

I should mention that the guy poured fuel on top of the carbs and starter the car and the engine ran good for about a minute before it ran out of gas and shut off. The guy said the float is missing on on of them.

I need ideas from you guys about how to deal with the carbs. any ideas of where to get donor carbs to pick parts off of would be welcome as well.

Thanks in advance guys
