I am going to say my carb is cast aluminum. It doesn't look like pot metal and doesn't feel heavy like pot metal. The float bowl cover is cast brass and says "Zenith Detroit". The tractor serial number is 13,3xx, so its a fairly early second gen. The oil fill/breather cap is actually not original and is a later version with the spring boss on the side. The original for my tractor had a spring clip retainer on the top and was missing when I got it.

Hi, Mike !

 

I see you signed-up here a long time ago, but have not been actively posting until recently. ...I see you more at Smokstak.

 

I hope all is well with you & your family.

 

Have you done anything more with that Beeman?  ...I found some of the original paperwork for it.

Bruce, how about scanning the Beeman paperwork and posting it?

Hi Bruce,
The Beeman is still on the back burner for now. I have since picked up two more Beeman tractors and should have enough good parts between them all to make one decent tractor when I can dedicate some time to it. What kind of paperwork did you find, manual or sales papers? Original paperwork is always very cool.

Doug,

I found a piece of the caster wheel rim that I didn't know I had. It appears that the wheels were constructed of two sheets of steel joined at the rim with a wire reinforced joint and about a half inch shoulder on each side. It was then just sandwiched in the hub between two big washers with a cast iron nut. Kind of like two pie tins facing each other and then squashed together in the middle.
