Default Marvel jet size.

I have 2 marvel carburetors that I am reassembling, I am sure that the idle jet size would be the same as any Zenith, 44-48?, it would make sense if it was both having the same throttle diameters, thanks in advance.

I have no experience here but since no one else has repled, that seems a reasonable start to me. If you have or have access to a set of appropriate drills, you could vary the jet size up or down later if needed.

I have Marvels on both my Model A's, love them! Best to not use Zenith jets in other carbs. Visit Renners Corners website, they are the Go to folks for Marvels, on their website they are known Allstate carbs.
