Hi folks, I am rebuilding the carburetor on my 1952 WD. It has a Zenith 10981A carb on it. While disasssembling the carb to put a new kit in it, I broke off/stipped out the idle jet in the bottom half of the carb. Can anyone tell me what size tap I would need to rethread this? I"ve already got most of the brass drilled out. Or, if someone out there would be willing to do the work for me reasonably, I can ship it to you. I would appreciate any advice y"all could offer. Thanks!

If you have a new jet, just compare it to a tap, or a bolt, to find what thread it is. Then try to screw a bolt into the hole. LOL Bob

Actually that looks just like the Carb I just replaced on my B. I ended up ordering the replacement Zenith Carb from this site. They do want $243 for it (including shipping) but that's cheaper then the $299 the other sites I checked out wanted before shipping. I had to modify the new Carb some to get it to fit and operate the choke and such, but that 49 B runs better now than it ever did, or at least while I've had it.
I started out thinking I'd rebuild it, but decided to go with the replacement. Glad I did.

Hey folks,

Thanks for the replies and suggestions. Just for the record, the vent well in this carb requires a 12-32 tap. I"ve got all of the broken brass out, and the new vent well installed!
