Does anyone have experience running a NOS Tillotson diaphragm 27816-66 and todays gas?
NOS diaphragms seem to be plentiful, but you have to wonder how they'll hold up to the modern cocktails.

Got a friend running a new OEM diaphram on a 70 since last year, no issues, well except the normal Tillotson issues, lol.
