I have a 1941 AC - C

I cleaned my Zenith carburetor, fired gummout through all the holes, cut a new gasket out of a cork sheet, cleaned the needle and fuel inlet under the floats and then started poking at a hole at the bottom near the choke plate. I used a sewing needle not really believing it went all the way through but it does. Is this hole supposed to be there? If so, how am I supposed to keep it clean? Did somebody drill it to spray ether in the carburetor to help start it? If it's not supposed to be there I'll cover it with something.

Thanks, Rick Keener

That hole is to let raw fuel out when the float hangs and floods. It used to have a mesh packing in it to keep out trash. I have seen some with a diaphram check type valve, but they were on larger carburetors. If the hole is tiny don't worry about it, but if large enough to pack with cloth or etc., re-pack it. Tom

I have a British Leland Long Model 154 Tractor. I am looking for a Zenith 26 V.M.E. carburetor. the body on mine is cracked, and I need a kit. Can you help me locate one? Thanks, Randy.
