Zenith carburetor

Zenith Carburetters was a British company making carburetters. In 1955 they joined with their major pre-war rival Solex Carburetters and over time the Zenith brand name fell into disuse. The rights to the Zenith designs was owned by Solex UK (a daughter company of Solex in France).

The big products of Zenith were the Zenith-Stromberg carburettors used in MGs, 1967-1975 Jaguar E-types, Saab 90s and early 99s and 900s, 1969-1972 Volvo 140s and 164s, and some 1960s and 1970s Triumphs, for instance the Triumph Spitfire used Zenith IV carburettors in the North American market. In Australia the CD-150 and CDS-175 models were fitted to the hi performance triple carburettored Holden Torana GTR-XU1.
