Re: Carburator screen?



Just watched an episode of “Chasing Classic Cars”.  They needed to rebuild a Corvair engine because a screw fell into carburetor and found its way into the engine.  I have heard of similar instances where a screwdriver holding the choke open did the same thing.  Maybe a prior owner had a similar experience.

I am restoring my very original '48 wagon and just pulled the carb. I have no reason to believe this carb has ever been off and yet there is a screen pressed into the gasket. Anyone else ever seen a screen in there?
