Sunday at work again cleaning off some shelves and found this Zenith carburetor but looks to small for Model A any ideas what it fits, Bob

Robert,

If no one recognizes it based on the shape of the carb, it might help if you give the distance between the bolt hole centers and the diameter of the bore, it will help folks know the size of the carb.

If you have normal size hands for a man the carb is clearly smaller than the Model A (not to mention it is shaped differently).

You can also see that it appears to be set up to use a cable rather than a rod for the throttle.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Thank you
center to center 2 3/8"
throat size 1"
overall length 5 7/8"
looks like 5/16" threaded holes on flange to mount carb. Bob

Boy, that Mr. Google knows a lot.

I put "B14 Zenith" in the search box, and he filled in "carburetor" and this was one of several choices...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ZENITH-B14-CARBURETOR-Antique-Tractor-Continenta l-Engine-/301518212929?nma=true&si=lDebghmWkhiJC3CZEZP1sT4%252BpGI%253D&orig_cvi p=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

I picked this one because it shows pictures - even though the carb is sold.
Other "hits" seemed to imply it is for a Continental Engine.

Bob, I have several restored model A s an that's not correct for 28 to 31 as best I know. There are alot of variation of brass shafts and pot metal throttIe shaft. As well the bowl isnt looking correct either. a models say zenith 1-2-3 0n them.So looks like a equipment carb like tractors, or maybe a replacement for some other old motor. Pretty sure a models is out! I bet someone one here knows for sure...Tim

Kudos to you Bob, for trying to identify what you have before you list it on Ebay!

I get a chuckle out of those listings that show a fuzzy picture of a part with a dubious description that it might fit every antique car name that the seller can think of. :-)

Wisconsin engines had a carb like this, I think.

It's not exact but really close what fits a Ford 8 or 9 tractor, might work. Don

9N Fords use a Schebler TSX 33; 8N's a Schebler TSX 214.
