1961 Penn. Panzer Carb, does anyone know the correct tap sizes for the jets. I need to clean then out and correct the threads from where they were seized.

What engine? The older B&S had a pair of special taps for chasing the threads in the carbs. They came in a plastic case from B&S. Use the removed piece to get the size. I remember one time taking the removed piece, using a file to clean the threads and make a notch so that the old piece could chase the threads. I had already gotten a replacement. The chaser worked okay but, I had to work very slow. Good Luck, Rick
