I am contemplating putting a straight through Holley NH on my 1910 touring. I had a difficult time last year running a rebuilt Kingston L4. Does anyone have experience with one of the straight through Holley carburetors on a crank-only car?

Thanks in advance for your feedback. I will step back and listen.

Mike

Mike, I have a straight bore Holley on both my 1915 speedster and my 1917 shooting brake. Both are hand crank only. No worries starting either one.

Same here. Typically cranks first 1/4 pull after priming with the key off three pulls.

My 1915 with a swayback starts on the first pull. I've read that a straight-through is even better.

I read about the straight through NH carbs being harder to start and poor idlers......The one I rebuilt and ran was neither. I think the sway back NH is slightly more forgiving all around, but the difference is very small.

Nh always a forgiving simple carb

I have an NH on my '15. When the engine is cold, it takes about three or four pulls including priming. When the engine is warm, it starts on the first pull, without priming.
