Would there be an application for the Model T Ford that uses an all brass Holly two screw carburetor.
it looks like the three screw version, but with just two screws.
thanks Herb

Yes the two screw Holley S was used in 1913 very similar to the 1912 model that has three screws it was a less complicated version according to the "Car that changed the world"

I've got both the Holley S ( two screw ) and Kingston Y ( 4 ball ), the Kingston ( in my opinion ) is a far far better carbi on the 13's, it may use a little more fuel, but its chalk and cheese with these two.

David - Not to lead this thread astray, but I couldn't resist; that must be an expression that means something in Australia, but where I come from, "chalk and cheese" are just,.....well,......chalk and cheese. Must be just an Australian expression that would mean something to my Australian relatives, but I've never heard them use it whenever they've been here to visit. Now then, if you'd have said something like something's "a bit dodgey", I'd have understood that one!

When two things are "chalk and cheese" they are completely different to each other, i.e. there are no similarities between then. Is that clear as mud now?

Andrew has nailed the answer, the two carbi's both have their good points, but as far as usability and ease of starting l find the Kingston better, BUT having said that, the Holley is also a good carbi, but in different ways, so yeah, "chalk and Cheese" is right,

Now how about this one.

"didyahaveagoodweekend ?" OR

"didyabringyagrogalong ?"

Good luck with that.
Its all English too.

David.

If anyone out there can tell me how to get a two screw to work properly, let me know. I can get my car started easily when cold, but after it warms up, it takes for ever to get the car going again. Long live the NH!

Scott Kramer has this carb for his '13. He may be able to shed additional info. I've seen it apart and it appears to be set up similar to the regular Holley G.

The "two screw" carby is the Holley S. It is quite rare (at least it was when I was searching for one for my 1913 about 15 years ago), I believe it was only used for part of 1913.



I used to run an NH, an S and an OF Stromberg on my 1913. When the car sold the S went with it. I found that all three carbs ran about the same... of course the OF hadn't been tweaked by Stan at that time so the comparison may not be fair.

I bought a parts carby about 20 years ago to finish up my S. I ended up taking only the bowl from it. I still have t that parts carb and will sell it for the purchase price I paid 15 years ago. It has a good body, nut, throttle and choke + bell cranks. AND, YES IT HAS A GOOD STRANGLER TUBE!!! The bowl is cracked and the float missing. The float valve and seat are there.

The strangler tubes in these carbys are the uber-rare part.

Contact me off line for photos and information.

So, anyway... this is a "two Screw" parts carby looking for a good home.

Ah that's good, l haven't heard that one before, for our ( NoN Aussie ) friends that would be

" kick a tinny along ",
" did you bring your grog ( alcohol ) along" - also known as BYO-( this stops the freeloaders who come, drink your beers and then bugger off ).
" did you have a good weekend "

Cheers

David.

I once had the small book "Let's Talk Strine," but made the mistake of lending to someone, can't remember whom, and never saw it again.

Two of my favorites were:

1. "Dismal guernsey." Australia used to use pounds, shillings and pence, but then they converted to dismal guernsey.

2. The author talked about being at a book signing, where people would tell him their name and he would inscribe the book to them. One woman stuck a book into his hand and said, "Emma Chizzit." He inscribed it "To Emma Chizzit," and then found out she was asking the price.

U hit the nail on the head David.
Good one Dick. I don't remember the decimal currency one. We went to the $ in 1966.
Hope you blokes don't mind us wandering off course for a sec.
