You mention the shut off valve. Are you talking about the petcock?
I didn't think mine was original. It's a brass type with a little T-bar spin adjustment. Sorta like a mini water valve. Is this the original petcock?
Thanks again.

P.S. My bike will do 45 mph and sometimes even a bit more.
My 49J is restored by Quenton & has the same petcock (shut off valve ) as you have.

Petcock appears to be original. The 705 Carter was used on a REO lawn mower motor, not Whizzer.

#724 is a low serial number and was most likely made by Whizzer, not Schwinn. Rumors have the first frames made by Cleveland Welding [Roadmaster], however some claim Whizzer made the first frames. Schwinn took Whizzer to court and the settlement was to have Schwinn make the Pacemaker frames for Whizzer.

Have fun,
