    What caused this pitting on the bottom of the carb.? Is it safe to use or is there a proper repair method?

    Probably in it's dark past, it had the dichromate protective coating scuffed off and sat outdoors or in a rain-barrel. Once water comes in contact with bare potmetal, it doesn't take long for calcification to take over. I use an acid dip which leaves a barrier coating, pewter colored, impervious to water & fuel and should last another 70 years.
