The Wizard carbs were made for Western Auto by Simmons. They are the same except for name.

That would have been my nickname if I was around in the 20's.

Scott, Its always worth a try to see if someone has a particular part to a carb, but if you don't find one, your best bet may be to buy a complete one and save yours for parts.

I don't think it would be too difficult to make one (or a few) of those "flapper" valves. But understand, both the weight and the balance are fairly critical for it to work properly. It would be best to have a decent (broken okay?) original to copy and compare to.
The material would not have to be the same as the original. Many of them were a pot metal, which has done what old era pot metal does. A combination of steel, brass, aluminum, even lead (solder) or J B Weld, could be used, as long as the final shape, weight, and balance, were close to the original.

How well does a T run with one of those carbies with out the flapper in it? doesn't look much different to a NH straight through.

Frank, there is no idle circuit on a Simmons like there is on the NH's. The flap is there to create vacuum in the venturi area to pull fuel out of the main jet area for the "idle circuit". But like Wayne said, balance and weight are very important

They run down the road just fine without it, but they don't idle at all, and are very hard to start.

Thanks Kenny & Derek, I have a couple of them but never tried one, I've always been happy with NH s/thou's.
