I have seen tractors with dual fuel setups but a T?

I don't get how it works. It appears to have four manifold ports that would match up to a T's exhaust ports but how is fuel/air introduced to the intake ports? Is it not actually for a T?

Must be missing a part or two. I know my exhaust pipe won't fit that right.

Most likely for a pump, combine, or some other use than in a car. KGB

Maybe originally it was in two parts like the Vaporiser or Kingston Gasifier and now the intake with the venturi part of the carburator is missing?

If it is for a T, and the owner doesn't appear to be certain himself, there has to be missing parts. Mysterious. Can't see how it works either.

Tried google. ng. I suppose it's the same Holley and they do have a history with Ford.

You'd have to have CHUMP tattooed on your forehead to shell out 750 bucks for that wall hanger!!

Oh yeah, there's the intake connection shown in the last photo in the ad.

Richard Eagle "nailed it"! Thanks to Keith's post, it becomes obvious that as Richard said, it is indeed "missing a few parts". Thanks Keith for your research and post, it clears up the "mystery"! The seller should have posted the same, or, similar Holley picture and information that Keith posted to properly represent the item he's selling just as he did, except to explain that the unit is NOT COMPLETE! Another case of,...."BUYER BEWARE".

I'm curious - As far as I can tell, the lower casting is basically just a float bowl probably with two chambers, one for gasoline and one for kerosene. Liquid fuel is drawn up through the exhaust heat to the carburetor on top where it is aspirated and drawn into the intake manifold.

Assuming I'm close in my thinking about how it works, why heat the fuel? I always thought that internal combustion engines, once warmed up, run better with a cold fuel/air mixture.

Another question: Why did they cast the exhaust manifold in a manner that makes using the original T exhaust pipe impossible? Wouldn't it work the same if the casting had the outlet in the same place as a regular T manifold?

Here's a unit from our collection that's a dual kero/gas intake/exhaust combo. This one looks like it would work better at vaporizing the kero then that Holley two piece unit. IMHO

interesting but why were the messages edited?

could it be for a reverse flow engine? swap the functions of the exhaust and intake valves?
