Borgward Isabella Solex Carburetor

i was asked recently if i could overhaul this Solex twin down draft carb. It’s a 32 PIAATA the same as found on Mercedes 220Sb W111 models of the early 1960’s. This one was making the car hard to start. Everything appeared normal on strip down but it’s missing a vital part,a valve in the accelerator pump.I’ve given the housings a clean while waiting for the gaskets to be delivered.
