Default Zenith 2 tip

Rebuilding a few carbs and I came across the odd size 13/32 for the GAV assembly. removed it with a adjustable wrench, but wanted something better. Snap-on and others made a special wrench for this available on ebay etc., but it is about the only use you would have for it. Took some measurements and found that it is only a few flat file strokes away from being a 10MM. Problem fixed no extra expense. Maybe not for the purists, but works for me...

There was a member who made a run of 13/32 sockets for us a few years ago.

What happened to the (Haag 1332) wrench? Did he decided to make a few or a large run or none? Do any of you guys know? Jack

I picked up an 11 mm. deep socket at Home Depot and it seems like it will do the job. Ed

I grab this one off Amazon. It was a little pricey, but it works well.
