I have always heard to use the paper/cardboard gasket. Just make sure the mating surfaces on the carb and intake manifold are flat. I think one reason is there is less chance breaking the ears.

Re: model a does not start

If lights/horn are also not working, check the starter mounted fuse if you have one. With that mod everything is fused, except the starter.

Re: Carb identify

Re: Carb identify

Just bought a Marvel, should be here fairly soon. Is it a direct swap for a Zenith? Gas line, GAV/Choke rod, Throttle rod all line up and correct length?

Re: Noisy generator

I would be surprised if it has the wrong springs. It most likely needs a little attention since it is 90 years old. If you are newer to the Model A hobby, a few pointers.
