To rebuild a 1912 Holley H1 4550 carburetor we are looking for a usable Bowl. Can somebody help us?? I am living in Belgium, are you willing to sell and send it to me??
You should check with Russ Potter. I believe he has some reproduction bowls.
If you can post a picture of what you have (or what you are looking for) it would help. I'm pretty sure I don't have one, they are hard to find that are not damaged. I'll take a look, tho, if you can show what you need.
I have a few Holly parts but mostly newer. If you could send a drawing of what you need I may be able to help.
A few of the newer Holly parts.
Is this it? troop
Troop, those are Holley G carbs.
The HI4550 was a short term production carb and I believe has a cast brass bowl with the needle and seat area off to the side. It does not interchange with any other Holley carbs. I have a box of odd brass bowls but don't know what they are or what they fit.
In the attachment a few photos of the carburetor and the bowl we are looking for. We already tried to put a holley G bowl on it but it is about 2mm too wide and don't fit. The bowl in not cast. We are looking for a replacement or a way to repair the bowl.
Thanks anyway for the help.
I spoke via email with Andre to my problem with the carburetor float bowl of my 1912. I wanted to write a post on the forum today and I just realized that André was faster than me…. Merci André…
So the research vessel Holley carburetor, it is for me.
Mine is completely cracked. I tried to make a silver solder to repair cracks but it distorts the brass when I approach the flame. It is therefore impossible to repair. I'm looking for another tank to carburetor. I am not anxious because I have other carbs that will allow me to start the engine.
I have another question for this carburetor. The original float, cork is destroyed. Can I use a float Holley G in Holley H1?
Note that the strangling tube was broken, I replaced it with one from a Holley G is the same.
So if you have a bowl H1 Holley carburetor in good condition, contact me by E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
See you on the forum ....
What is the height of the bowl when setting as you show it, from the table surface to the edge of the center hole?
Could you E/Mail me Re,the best way to converse re, a 1912 holly carb problem.

While we're on the subject of the H-1, I'm in need of a complete throttle shaft assembly in case anyone's got one lying around.
In the recent past there was a thread about repairing a brass bowl for a carburetor. Can someone do a search for that? I would like to see it again also.
Was it this one?
I still haven't seen a photo of the top side of the H54550. I'm guessing the arm and shaft for the throttle are very similar to the Holley G. R V I can make you a shaft and put your arm on it or just make the shaft, put a G arm, whatever. I make them out of Silicon bronze so they don't wear like the brass ones do.
