Working on a 26. The choke and mixture parts are missing. before I can order the correct parts, I need to know what carb I have. Attempts to post pictures didn't work.( I don't know how to reduce the size.) If someone would be so kind as to email me. I can email a pair of pictures that should give someone "in the know" enough information to determine the type I have. thanks, Dave dwad1939@att.net

David quicker way is to type in your search box;
mtfca; carburetor (kingston, holley)
You should get lots of hits. Good chance you will have a Holley NH.

Here are Dave's pictures.




Looks to me like a straight-through NH with an extra drain valve added. Dave, look on the far side of the top, facing the engine. There may be an ID tag there.

I think it is a Detroit carb. Kinda rare,but they make good wall hangers. I actually found one for Russ Potter's collection.

I think it is a regular NH that has a Kingston L4 bowl installed. That works fine.

I retract my guess.On second look it appears to be a Simmons,with the bowl switch as Royce states.

My reason to ID the carb is to learn which parts to buy to give me the choke and mixture parts that will work. I found A Choke rod in Macs catalog that is long enough but it didn't show a "fork" on the end. Perhaps the illustration just cropped it off? Also the slider that choke is connected to shows two different part numbers. The illustrations looked the same. On the plus side, I have the valves installed and the head torqued. The entire wire harness is being installed as I find time. It won't be long before I "smoke test" it! LOL.

The 26 choke setup will not work. You will need the earlier style spray needle adjuster and a separate wire to pull the choke. The 26 up setup used a u-joint not the fork and the spray needle was taller.

If you wanted to use the 26 rod and choke assembly you would have to make the forked end that would slide on the square shaft. Adding to that, the spray needle is not the same as NH carbs there are enough differences so one can't be subsatuted for the other.

Jack is right. I just looked at a Wizard carburetor to be sure. It's a Simmons Western Auto Wizard with a Kingston L4 bowl.

All the Nh parts will fit it,except the main needle is different.And,you can have a needle made to use the 26 swivel. (don't ask how I know.)
