Hey guys/gals , looking to pick up a rebuilt Holley NH for my 26 tudor , have one on it now ( had a rayfield on it when I bought it ) needs rebuilt and Although I can do many things , carbs and radiators are nothing that I've had experience in . I was thinking of buying one from any of the main parts folks and was wondering which vendor has the best one or is it apples to apples when it comes to carbeurators ? Thanks .
The rebuilt carbs carried by Lang's come from Russ Potter, a respected carb guru. I can't comment on the rebuilt carbs from the other vendors. Others here may be able to report.
Good luck with your project. Bill
Stan , I think it is a UF , I can send you a picture tomorrow , the car also has a aftermarket? Manifold which is one piece exhaust and intake , do not think original to car as it has a 1916 patent date on it , but had good threads and not warped. Kinda liked it so I put it back on I can post a picture of it also if you'd like .
Here's a link to a Rayfield UF post from a past accessory of the day post.
A Rayfield Stan???? You know what I want.
By the way, still got pictures of the Holley G and a Stromberg OF around...you know pictures of them disassembled?
Here is pictures of the Rayfield and the manifold
Manifold a little brighter.
Thanks Mike , phone camera doesn't work so good and garage pretty dark .
Travis, there are a couple things you could do here, you can have the Rayfield rebuilt and run it or I would take it in trade on a rebuilt NH. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my web site is www.strombergof.com
I'd be real tempted to send the Rayfield to Stan and have him work his magic on it. He would make it a real gem. An NH works OK but they are nothing special.
Any Thoughts on the manifold ? Pat date of 1916 .
Travis, I don't like to run any of the preheat type of manifolds as they hurt performance. They may have helped back in the day with the poor quality gas. Now the gas is so good there is no need for it. Colder air charge in the combustion chamber is denser than preheated air.
Lots of guys like to collect that kind of thing though.
Recieved rebuilt carb from Stan ( thank you it looks fantastic ) and 4 rebuilt coils from Ron Patterson , been a lot cold here so not too much time in garage as other projects have taken priority til spring but can't wait to hear it run again now that I've got them !!
Fantastic Travis. Spring touring season is upon us here in the PNW. Not so much in PA, but soon. Hope you get some good road time in with your T. Let us know how it runs.
