Hey guys I need some help I have a kingston L4 carb from 1926 that broke just before the holes to mount the manifold can I TIG weld this back up or is it junk. thanks
Good L4's (and I think they're excellent carbs) can be had relatively cheap. Several on ebay now less than $50. One real pretty brass one (I didn't know they were made in brass!)
From Bruce McCalley's Big Black Book:
The early Kingston model L4 carburetor. This model was all new but of the same basic design of the L2. Early versions (left) had a bronze body but the bulk of production was cast iron (right). This L-4 was used on 1920 to 1921 Fords. The L-4 was also used on 1926 Fords with the needle valve shaft changed to a swivel joint.
I may have some old bodies lying about. I will look tomorrow.
Ok thanks Jack
