Solex Carbs Rebuild Questions

1963 220SB semi daily driver, very good condition with lots of smallish jobs to do. The car runs very well but I have to run with the choke out or it will stall out the automatic gear box from a stationary start even when fully warmed up. Other than that it runs and drives very smoothly most of the time. The carbs look suitably grimey for their age and a little leaky so I am guessing a good cleaning and rebuild kits would help. I am a little nervous that after reassembly tunning may prove beyond me. Can anyone recommend what and where to buy parts, and give any advice on cleaning, rebuilding, tunning and anything else that might help.
I have attached photographs just in case I am missing anything obvious.
Best wishes, Steve.
