      I wonder if this link will work better.

      You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          If you're looking for a good reference book about the carbs, look for "The Ford Carburators" by Paul Moller.

            Thanks Brothers. Got it.

              The only carb book I have is the one by Steve Pargeter, and I think it's a very good book.

                Here is another good reference, But it's online
                I use it all the time.
                It's put up by Berts

                  A very knowledgeable man by the name of Chris Pelican (in Colorado) wrote that article years ago. He rebuilt and sold all types of Model A Zenith carbs and road-tested every carb he sold. If you bought a carb from him, it needed almost no adjustment. He created special tooling to use in his work. About 2010 he sold his entire business to Bert.

                  If I was in the market for a GOOD reb’lt carb, Berts would be a place to go. They are reasonable and tested on a motor.

                Carburetor Question
                by conaway2
                A recently acquired carburetor appears to be a Zenith, but any name has been removed. It also has what seems to be a vent on top of the bowl. Any ideas what this carburetor is ?

                thanks - Jim...

                After reading the articles in the Restorer's great edition of Guide to Zenith Carburetors.1-5
                and still confused. there was only passing mention of Z-2s
                I have a ZENITH -2 with a Z under the throttle throat, front side.
                Back side has large "E" with small"44"above.
                under on main body is "B5". have determined that its not a "Frankin"?...

                Question: How many ways to remove a recessed broken drill bit from a carburetor? Tip?
                by H. L. Chauvin
                About (20) years ago, I bought an inexpensive "As Is" Model B Zenith carburetor half, (which in the e-bay photo ad), did not indicate the long exposed brass Power Jet Tube protruding from this carburetor half.

                After receiving it in the mail, I saw where the hole in the carburetor half for the Power Jet Tube was plugged with a broken drill bit tightly lodged in it with this...

                by DBaldwin
                I have a spare Tilliston and a zenith that I’ve torn down and installed new gaskets and jets in. now I’d like to find a good book that can walk me through it to ensure that I’ve done the job right and educate myself on the finer points of their respective operation. Is there a single book worthy or are there individual books that are recommended for each carburetor? Not wanting to waste money...

                by Jim Stulga
                Can anyone tell me the difference in the Marvel carburetor numbers? I see listings such as Marvel #2, #7, #53 and wonder what the difference is and what the recommendations would be as an alternate to the factory Zenith. Checked youtube and seems nobody has made a tutorial on rebuilding one, but lots of videos on other Marvel models. Thanks, Jim...
