I am reading this at 1800 hrs. Eastern Standard time so I may not be of much help to you.  It would be helpful to know which Solex carb you are using ( PICT 30? 32? 34?) and a picture of the various open vacuum ports would also help.  There are a number of reasons for VW engines not to idle.  Read back on some of the old posts.  There is lots of information there.
I'd rather have a partial bottle in front of me than a partial frontal lobotomy.
