Re: Need Help with Model B Carb

I think it’s the throttle shaft. Put my Model A Zenith on this afternoon and it runs fine. Which is the better repair? I don’t have a drill press.

Re: Need Help with Model B Carb

I pulled the drain plug and the main jet is tight. Throttle shaft does have some slop in it, can pull it back and forth (or in and out) probably 1/8”. Don’t have a vacuum wiper line, plug in manifold...

Identify a Horn?

Found some auto horns in a box of parts. Can anyone tell me what they are for? No numbers or letters on the horns to help ID.

Re: Best plugs..??

The O'Reilly description stated a plug gap of 0.033" to 0.038". What do you use for Model A's? Isn't .018 to .022 recommended?
