Unhappy Model B Carb Issues

So as one of my Covid-19 therapy projects I rebuilt and restored 2 Model B Zenith Carbs. I actually really like them. They run and idle well and the transverse mounted float helps with stalling at...

Re: Cap and Comp Jet Helicoil repair

The secondary well threads are not relevant here. Only the passage to the comp jet which cannot be reached if one was to fill the area with brass and cut new 5 mm threads.

Cap and Comp Jet Helicoil repair

Both of these are 5mm 75 pitch threads. Checked local auto parts and no luck there. Trying to repair Zenith 3 bottom that I found in a box at an antique store. All I can find is M5 .08.

Re: Stubborn Zenith

Added a bushing there and it's very snug. I sprayed starting fluid around it and it didn't surge on me.

Re: UPDATE....Ok so a brand new radiator and it still runs hot

My old radiator was fine as long as the temps didn't get above 75 degrees. It too was a 2 row 8 fin. Had it flushed twice. It just takes 3 cores to do the job.
