Need Source for Zenith 04 Carburetor Floats


Recommended Posts

Is anyone reproducing the drum-shaped floats with a center hole for the Zenith 04 updraft carburetor?  

 

Here are the specs: 

1-13/16" diameter 

1-3/8" high 

3/16" center bore 

7/32" relief "dish" in each end

 

Thanks to any who might know.

Tinindian,

The problem isn't making the float out of cork; the problem is keeping the needle's counterweights from wearing out their contact surface on top of the float.

 

PFitz,

Thanks for the link!  I have traded with RSC for years but I have never seen that page with those items on it.  I'm sure that I will be able to use some of them in the future, but I am leery about unsealed Nitrophyl (after it is shaped) and I don't know what to use as a sealant.  Moreover, see above concern about abrasion by float counterweights.

 

Jeff
