Re: Kwik Way brake shoe arcing machine

Thanks Jim and Russ - I have an adaptor hooked up to my shop vac and vented for the dust. It is heavy and not used often but it looks and feels at home with my Model A and parts.

Re: ZENITH 2 sidebowl carb question

There are also markings on the carb castings C52 on the bottom part and G12 on the Top - any idea what their significance is?
