    Not sure if this would be the right forum...new guy on board. I acquired what appears to be a 1954 HA that someone had started to rebuild and unfortunately passed away. Looks good but its missing the air breather to the carburetor. Wondering where I would go to start searching...appreciate any help...thanks
