Zinc survives 12 hours in a salt spray cell.
Yellow chromated zinc survives 250 hours.
Clear chromate survives 175.

Zinc plate, yellow chromate, use a sodium carbonate leach back for clear look. 250hours.
Or just dip a bolt in acid and lose 95% of itís protective coating.

Also understand that once exposed to weather, it will rapidly rust once the oil in it dries out.

Indeed Mr Mark.
Any of us that try to be craftsman and create something achieve a small amount of immortality in our creations.
Jim excelled at this, his work is viewed daily by thousands.

Hope you all have a merry christmas, from, I dunno, wherever I am 😀

I had two repros and two originals in my shop at once. I took a pile of photos and posted them to my AirFuelSpark page.
I also posted them here on SAAC, detailing every difference.

I donít have the ability to repost it due to cell restrictions. Feel free to search for it.

If you end up sending it this way, Iíd be happy to replate minor pieces as you wish.

Typically the pump spring and screw need to be silver as does the throttle return spring etc. little stuff, but a pain from your end.

Mr Jack. Do you have a reasonably priced C7OF-9510-A?
I seem to have acquired four people that need one at once, so my stock is depleted.

Most common causes for this:

-lever vent as Royce mentioned
-twisted throttle shaft (common with early brass shafts)
-fast idle cam rubbing on the choke housing. Even at best there is almost no clearance.
- fast idle screw hanging up
-pressure on the accelerator pump lever/cam (easy way to test, remove cam)
-throttle plates rubbing bore unevenly.
-improper throttle body gasket (between main body and baseplate)
-improper gasket between carb and intake.
-VS closing link too tight. (Sometimes you need to bend it and get more clearance)

Be methodical and Youíll find it.
I KNOW how frustrating this can be, Iíve done a ton of carbs and once in awhile one is troublesome in this regard.
Iím not certain I can think of why it would just do it running.
Heck, recently I built a 4609 for Mr Bill here on the forums, ran fine for me, no issues, yet he has a comparable problem which is frustrating us both.

If you need more detail on any of the above just ask!

Later otc had a date code as did the first repros. Later repros had

There are some generic cores that I can steal original plugs from.
(They were used in the baseplate)
