That's Pat Murphy's 1918. And yes, it ran like a clock all
weekend.
My Ace suffered some carb problems. I was running it when I
saw gas pouring out of the carb intake. The float cracked
when I tried to adjust the float level, then the brass piece
that secures the float to the needle arm was seized and was
replaced. Still it wouldn't close the needle. When I bought
a replacement needle and pulled the original out, it was worn
nearly in half. Never did get it fixed at the show. Worked
too much through the weekend. At least the Linkert man had a
stand in Oley.
