I don't have any info on the serial number, but the carburetor looks like the one shown for early production (no choke) 1909 in the encyclopedia.

It was used on 1909 to mid 1910 Model T's. Mid year in 1910 the intake was placed at an angle with an added choke.

It is missing the mushroom flame arrestor but still very nice. At least a $900 carburetor as is.

Let me guess. Nobody at the antique mall had any clue what it is, and it sold for a fraction of what it's worth. :-)

does anyone have dimensions of the mushroom flame arrestor and pipe they could share? i would like to make them so that the carb is complete. thanks

They came in different sizes. The one you have looks smaller than those that fit a Model T.

richard

what came in different sizes, the carb? this one is identical to the one on my 1911 with the exception of the lack of drain petcock and hot air tube.

interesting also is that the ball retainer caps are numbered on the carb where as my 1911 carb is not.
