Default Re: Zenith troubles

After dealing with a leaky zenith carburetor by shimming up the float to the correct level, I was able to stop the carburetor from leaking and the car ran pretty good. However, one new problem that I started having was I would stall when coming to a stop unless I adjusted the idle on the steering column higher.

Last week we took our Model A to the Sweet Home Alabama tour and after mentioning this to a friend there, he asked how much of a turn did I have my gav. I told him I had it just a tad open and he said to experiment opening it more - quarter to a full turn out and by gosh that did it.

Now it no longer stalls coming to a stop and I also noticed much better performance at higher speeds. It's all one big (fun) learning experience.
