Yesterday, I received the rebuilt Kingston L4 carburetor that I had ordered from Lang's. It is a work of art!

Thankyou so much to whoever did the work, you are a true craftsman, please identify yourself and take a bow.

I made a simple stand for it with some scrap wood and am keeping it covered with the plastic bag it came with until I'm ready to install it (FYI, I installed the fuel inlet elbow, the carb came with a plastic plug in the fuel inlet).

I'm also very satisfied with the rebuilt carb. that I bought from Lang's some years back. At the time I checked it over , and with out changing their settings installed it and the car fired right up.

Look on the mounting flange,if it is stamped with a "P" ,Russ Potter did it.

I checked, it has an "L" and a "P" stamped into the flange, so it's either Russ or maybe an apprentice, thanks Russ!

Good choice on the L4. Overall I found the L4 had a good idle, easy start and didn't need as much fussing as the NH that I ran for sometime. I am running a Stromberg now but keep my L4 as a backup.
When rebuilding my L4 I used a NH throttle and bushed the housing. The butterfly slot lined up and everything went together nicely.

I helped Bus Scudder several years ago install one of those new NH carbs on his "1915" TT truck. It had a Grose Jet in it that would not stop leaking, constantly flooding. We replaced the Grose Jet with a totally worn out looking original needle and seat from a junk carburetor, with a new gasket. The new carb worked fine after that.

A new NH? I'm surprised there is such a thing. With so many originals around, and so cheap, manufacturing new ones sounds like a sure money-loser.

I have a rebuilt nh from and langs and it is a beauty, just hope it runs good, will know soon

I think the outfit that had the new ones made is Oklahoma Vintage Ford parts. I agree that it was a stupid venture with so many originals around.

Ebay and the internet have destroyed the illusion of rarity on many things. I have a bunch of those Hallmark Christmas ornaments that plug into the Christmas tree light sockets, I thought they might be worth something, so I looked on Ebay, there were hundreds of them for sale. Oh well....

LOL Mark. I had a similar "revelation" concerning an extensive collection of Hallmark ornaments. Years back we went to a toy fair/flea market at the Atlantic City Convention Center. A dealer there had built his booth out of crates filled with Hallmarks. He had dozens of every item I had.

Anybody want to buy hundreds of romance novels? My late aunts were addicted.

I always see good rebuildable NH's at Chickasha.
They are plentiful to be sure.
I always look in the trailers of so called junk and usually find one under a pile of this and that.

Yup, At the top of the Beanie Baby craze a 'had to have' model would knock the snot out of a fist full of Benjamin's. That same beanie baby today can be had on Ebay for a handful of pocket change.

Steve, Sounds like a Fahrenheit 451 moment is in order. Those Pulp Fiction novels have a lot of BTU's in them. I would think they'd be worth there weight in Propane these days!

I just got a rebuilt NH from Lang's after a 3 month wait. Just installed it and it is peeing fuel from the side. There is a small hole on the engine side and gas is just wizzing out of it. What does that mean?

Needle is stuck open on the float.

Thanks....So these are designed to leak fuel? Big hammer solve the problem?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Allan Richard Bennett on Friday, January 31, 2014 - 06:49 pm:

Kevin, a little hammer is often enough to cause the float/needle to.free up and do as they are meant to.Hit the manifold rather than the carb.

Hope this helps.
