V was wondering why the throttle wouldn't turn. I've never seen carbs quite this trashed.

Hopefully the valve stems don't look exactly the same way... Depends on whether someone tried to run it on that old gas... I did this once on the 1933 Plymouth. Several valves stuck down. Fortunately on a flathead, there's no interference to worry about.

Acetone or lacquer thinner cuts it pretty good.

A quick compression check would verify proper valve operation.
