Looks kind of interesting.......
Don't believe everything you read..
Does anyone HAVE one of these?
Is so.......whatdoya think?
I have one,hanging on the wall.
Here's the link to the one in our collection.
i have a couple of them. Never ran one but I don't see anything that would make it run any better than a stock T carb.
Looks a little like a Stromberg...I'd like to see more whats under the float, where is the float valve and whats under that bottom bolt or nut cover? Is that where the needle valve is hiding? The rest is easy.
The float valve is in the bottom of the bowl, they have a cork float and a direct passage to the main jet, which is just a simple orifice that is ahead of the venturi. That bottom "bolt" is just a cap over the main jet. IIRC the main jet is a compensating jet which means it has a couple extra holes to draw more fuel as needed. That's what their big claim to fame is, no adjustment needed.
Stan, you wouldn't happen to have some pictures to help describe what your explaining would you? This carb looks like fun, I just love a mechanism with lots of twiddles and levers and stuff...like the Rayfield's, now there are some interesting looking gadgets!
I got this carb for the opening bid + free shipping.......
It arrived today and I couldn't wait to take a test zoom.
I removed what plugs there are and made sure the passages were open. It has an interesting main jet and the carb has quite the venturi.
I lapped the float needle a little just as a precaution and it seats perfectly.
The only thing that gave me trouble was a nut for the fuel inlet nipple but I found ONE in a can of old used fittings that's been at the shop forever.
The carb is a slam dunk fit except for a minor bend in the gas line.
It has fixed jets, is all bronze and brass construction and it looks kind of nice........
I can't say it performs any better but I sure like it.......
Martin.......it's so easy to take out I took some pics for you.
