I had a picture or 2 saved from a old forum post a few years ago that showed a NH carb and it's brass plugs that you drill out to really give it a fit about cleaning.
Could someone help me out finding or reposting them as the computer crashed that had that on it and I got this computer to replace it 7 or 8 months ago.
I did get the other 1 working again after a distructive restore.But that meant all the pics were lost.
thank You sir.
I bought a new throttle lever from Bobs, and it's one of the finest reproductions I've ever seen. I couldn't be happier. My hats off to Bob for having a great part made.

Chris, that's a great way to do a search, must try to remember the technique.
I suppose I shouldn't post this because it is really not germane to the question at hand but I have a slick way of putting the tag back on after it is removed to clean the passages. The holes for the pins are the right size for 2-56 screws. Just buy a little 2-56 tap and a dozen brass screws and you are good to go. Easy to remove if you ever want to clean it again and except for the slot in the head they look exactly like the pins which never hold anyway. They usually have tiny taps and screws that tiny at the hobby stores that deal in electric trains.
I also tap the passage ports with 8-32 threads and use a Allen head set screw in place of the brass plugs.
Stan - Good tip,....and to add just a bit for those that don't have a model train hobby shop handy, MicroMark.com is a good web site. I'm not a model railroader, but their catalog and on line site is a great source for small tools and hardware. I've found them to be a good outfit to deal with. Among other small tools over the years, I bought a great little set of tiny little taps and dies from them, and once you make a purchase, you'll receive an updated little catalog several time per year.........harold
Fastest way to find stuff on this forum is to use Google. Type in mtfca+carb drill and you'll get back a bunch of results. Either search thru those results ... or ... just below where you typed in the search words you'll notice the word Images. Click on that after doing the initial search and you will see exactly that - images related to what you typed in. It all takes about 6 seconds.
Substitute the word carb for whatever it is you're looking for. The word drill is just a related word you know you'd find in the article so that's why it's included. It just helps to narrow down the search results to get rid of useless clutter. Searching for mtfca+carb returns about 16,400 results. Adding the word drill reduces that down to about 8,600 results
Thanks for the tips.I have started something different on computer mess.I save stuff to the computer,but I also will be saveing stuff like this to a usb flashdrive. That way it aint as lost as before.
I aint working on a T right this minute but I know the carb on the pickup project has needed some work and I want to just pull 1 from the shelf and go over it completly and just switch it out.
Aint worked on T's much latly.Since Febuary actually.I have just had to much off topic stuff going on,lost the battle with social security,and been hurting because of what the doc said is osteoarthritis. left hip replacement has beem mentioned but I will find out more when I see a orthopedist.,I hope a shot and some medicine will be ok for a while.
Took the first Tramadol this morning.Feeling well enough to turn a few wrenchs today on off topic stuff and looking forward to doing more.
Mac, don't give up on the battle with Social Security. Keep fighting, get a (shudder) lawyer if you have to. Don't take no for an answer, they usually refuse a claim hoping you will give up. I've seen it before. Good luck. Dave
That is the NH that I converted to a "Poor mans Straight Through". It is still on my car here at Kanab !!
