Here in Belgium July and August are the months of annual leave and many companies are closed.
I found a carburettor identical to mine 100 KM from my home ... This gentleman around 70 has 40 years experience with carburettors ! He is a wealth of information in this field, repairs and reconstitutes carburettors of all kinds. He explained that some flows of Solex carburettors in Zingoil was of poor quality which explains the state of mine.
I found two Chevrolet trucks in Germany to look at, one in a gigantic museum in Sinsheim, this one was used to transport barrels of wine, in this region of Germany there are many vines. I will visit this museum later this month !
The other truck belongs to Karl Hermann and this son, firemen of Tubingen, it is a former fire truck of Copenhage in Denmark in perfect condition !
Have a good day.
