Zenith Carburettor Handbook


Zenith Carburetor (Baverey's System) 13th Edition April 1923


This is a transcript of the Zenith-Detroit Company's handbook of "Instructions for Operating & Adjusting" for Zenith carb's in use in the 1920's. To keep as much of the original graphic material we have scanned only the drawings and illustrations, the text being typed in to save space. The printing quality is not that good, and we have compromised at 175dpi as a reasonable resolution. The graphics background colour is from the paper used in the booklet.
