Zenith Carbs source

Re: Zenith Carbs source

Frank, I purchased a Zenith 13922 a few months back, but have been not been up to doing anything until the arrival of my sons for the holiday. They insisted that we install this puppy and make something happen. To our surprise, however, the bolt spacing is off by a full quarter inch, 2 3/8 on the Zenith, 2 5/8 on the Durant. Is there any fix for that, or do I have to continue searching for a different carb?

Re: Zenith Carbs source

I found the same thing. I just used smaller diameter bolts with a washer on top and bottom.
This will pull the carb up tight and the carb outlet will match the intake manifold.
