Rebuilt Zenith S4BF carb and intake

This is a rebuilt Zenith S4BF by Stan Howe that I got from Jay a few months ago and I don't think has ever been used since the rebuild.

'26-'27 brakes

I'm sure something has already been posted, but has anyone ever hooked up the emergency brake system to assist the regular service brake. I'm thinking a connection from the pedal to a cross shaft with rods and slots connected to the E brake rods. Bruce
