Some of you at Chickasha saw the particularly nasty Rayfield F that some idiot had sandblasted with really coarse grit and a lot of air. I cleaned it up last night and thought you'd like to see what it looks like all apart. Also for the guy who draws the carb pics. The second pic is the Breeze carb I got that was painted red. They were mostly used on Hupmobile.
Stan It don't look too bad now but I have also seen modern carb's totally destroyed by person's who dumped their aluminum paper weights in the non-solvent cleaners.... turns shiny aluminum black and porous I guess the ID10t forms are still available in bulk quantities
Looking good Stan. KGB
This is not aluminum, it is brass or bronze with an occasional piece of copper. Note there are no steel parts in the photos. They go in a different Ultrasonic and then get bead blasted and powder coated. These go through the Ultrasonic with brass cleaner, then are bead blasted, then through the Ultrasonic again the are rinsed and blown clean, passages blown, etc and finally are wire brushed with a stainless steel .006 brush. These are carbs I dunno, probably 800 or 900 or somewhere along in there. I don't do anything newer than 1930 unless it is brass. No pot metal, no Aluminum, no Cast Iron, no plastic, just brass.
When I saw the title I thought it was a Vaudeville act!
Nice work as always Mr. Howe
Lovely work Mr Howe. You're doing a lot of Hupmobile Breeze Carbs. Hopefully my one will come up as nice when its turn comes up in your shop -Karl
