So looking at Mr. Simon's work is correct as this carb is natural aluminum.
So the last question is the plating of the metal parts? He told me he does them in "gold zinc". Should I have it done that way or go for more of the "chrome zinc" finish?
The body of the carb should not be painted. I mention this because in the photo it looks like that carb may be painted, if it is you'd take a hit for sure during judging.
The linkage parts should be silver, its either silver cad or zinc plating I'm not sure which.
The choke housing body is a cast part and was plated when new, I think it was cad, has a greenish gold hue.
