I was thinking of having one of these rebuilt for use on one of our 1915 Fords and would like to know if anyone has any experience running one of these units before I go though the expense of having one rebuilt. Any inputs appreciated.

Big advantage is that they have a separate adjustment for idle. They run pretty well, probably not the best accessory carb ever made but certainly not the worst.

Stan, how does it compare to the NH for example?

This is the patent for the info on Jayís casting,
but Iíll leave it to the experts to determine if some (or any)
of the design shown in the drawings is a match.

Performance is probably about the same as an NH, the big advantage being that once set, you don't have to fool with the adjustment all the time.
