Carburator issues

The Carb is leaking and we are planning to rebuild or replace, the present one is a Zenith 04 series which is a model T carburetor. But The jets are fixed jets, which means not good for a Six cylinder engine. Does anyone know what the correct carb should be used on the 14L engine.

Also if I rebuild, does any one know where I can get a kit for removing fixed jet and use a adjustable jet screw assembly.

I have studied all the Carb data, but could use some new advise. Also we are planning to put on 6volt fuel pump and regulator this winter.

I did find rebuild info from the Model T sites?

Re: Carburator issues

William, Norm's right, you have a lot of options.
The chart on the Tech page was created by Phil Peters and cover just about every engine the company used.
