Default Re: Engine sputters and dies when at high rpms and under load

I don't know what bavArian meant by a split line but my first Model A had a rolled fuel line that a split the length of it. It may have been original. It eventually started leaking gasoline when the split opened up and I had to replace it with a regular tube.

If it runs well with the borrowed carburetor, as you say, and you cannot get the original carburetor to perform, then consider sending the carburetor in for repair to someone who specializes in Zenith rebuilds. They should test the carburetor on a car before sending back to you.
A is for apple, green as the sky.
Step on the gas, for tomorrow I die.
Forget the brakes, they really don't work.
The clutch always sticks, and starts with a jerk.
My car grows red hair, and flies through the air.
Driving's a blast, a blast from the past.
