  1. I have repaired the tank float twice. Submerged it in warm water to find the leaks, then soldered the leaks. I drilled a small hole in the bottom of the float to shake out all the gas and or water. Let it sit for a while to allow any fumes to evaporate then make the repair keeping the solder as thin as possible, then plug the drain hole you made. Make sure the hook from the float threads through both eyelets with the entire hook above both eyelets.(patience) so it operates smoothly.
  2. If I recall correctly, there is a small rubber "flapper" at the bottom of the inner tank which acts as a check valve. That 's what I called a diaphragm. It's been a while.
  3. That's the same model I have on my '29 Whippet. Looks all there. There should be an inner tank and a diaphragm on the bottom inside the outer tank. There is a guy online who repairs them but no parts for the 4 screw top.
  4. Just last night I watched 4 episodes of horn repair. I googled "aooga horn repair" and they came up on U-tube. I believe the grouping was Shade Tree Mechanic or something like that. You may have to dance around the site to watch them in order, but it is worth it.
  5. Landman, I'm brand new to the site and I'm very impressed. I am beginning to restore the roof of a 29 Whippet and I need to replace some of the wood structure. I'm wondering where you referenced your woodworking and if there is a book or site I can refer to to help me along. I just want to tackle the roof for now because I enjoy driving it daily now that the season is near. Rick.
