Default Re: Bad batch of parts

Defective new Zenith? Probably not. But .....

I picked one up from a friend who "could not make it work". He said it would stall out after a few minutes running. I found out that if you take off the top and put the gasket on upside-down, (it will fit!) the gasket blocks the air balance passage to the float bowl. Since that's the way that air gets into that bowl as gas is consumed, blocking it will cause the bowl to empty as the gas is used.

Putting the gasket in correctly and the carb runs perfectly.
