I picked this carburetor up at a swap meet in Bristol Ct today. The seller told me he found it in his grandfathers basement on a shelf with the instructions still attached. It looks like it has never been used. It was manufactured by Malleable Iron Fittings in Branford Ct. They made pipe fittings. Has anyone ever used one of these and if so how did it run?

Never seen or heard of one before. It sure would look good in my collection if you decide to sell it.

Stan if I decide to sell it I will let you know. I found old ads on the web but have never seen one like it Bill

Cool.
Does the tag number match the serial number?

Very unusual, it uses the air from the hot air pipe to warm the fuel in the float bowl:

The number on the paper tag is 1504
The spaces on the metal tag are blank with the letter D on the right blank space.
