Which carburetor is this? Tag says Holly NH doesn't look like NH and it is brass.
Try a magnet on it. Magnets do not stick to brass.
What I can see of it looks like NH to me, but I've never seen a brass (bronze?) one. How about some pictures of it off the car?
I had a brass body NH carb. Only difference we could find was spring loaded throttle shaft. I donated it to Jay for the MTFA museum. He wrote an article on it for the vintage ford. Don
Steve, There is a lot of good photos in the Vintage Ford article. Don
Brian, Does your carb have a spring loaded throttle shaft??? Don
Would be rather nice for a Ford marine engine.
The carb is a brass Holly NH. It has the spring on bottom. I will be pulling off the car tomorrow. I will have good photos in a day or two.
Not going to sell. The MTFCA has one on display at there museum thanks to Mr. Kirtley. I will be building a stand and loaning to Piquette for display.
Brian, Glad to hear that. Cant wait for more photos. I'll try to locate the issue of the Vintage Ford with the carb article. Don
Brian, Photos of a BRASS NH are in the May/June 2015 Vintage Ford article by Jay Klehfoth. Don
Brian, your T will run a lot better with that carb, if you add the hot air pipe to direct the warm manifold air into the carb.
I had a rough running T for 10 years before anyone told me the importance of that simple little hot air pipe.
Brian, Did you get the carb I sent you?? Don
Mr. Kirtley, Thank you! I received it. I have removed the carburetor! Pictures to follow. Thank you. I have been in contact with Mr. Steve Shotwell and the Carburetor will be on display at Piquette.
Photos of Brass NH Carburetor!
Brass Holly NH
I've seen hundreds of NH carbs, but never brass. That has to be a pretty rare bird.
Notice the spring under the throttle!
It looks like it has had lots of work done to it after it left Holley. One obvious problem, it seems to have both a center drain and a bowl drain, something Holley would never have done. Likely it is a center drain carburetor that now has a replacement bowl that has the side drain.
The carburetor is set up for 1925 - 26 style linkage, and it is not a straight thru. Maybe Holley was experimenting with going back to bronze, or it had a bunch of bronze sitting around that they needed to use up.
Royce, Why the spring loaded throttle?? Someone suggested a marine application? Then why a steel bowl?? I have been questioning these things for years.. Don
