This was the carburetor on our 1927 speedster when we purchased it a dozen or so years ago. I am amazed that it ran on a dinky little go kart carburetor, not great but it ran! I changed it out with a NH before I did any serious driving.
Yeah There was one of those on my roadster too, Worked better with a fuel pump but was discarded fairly quickly!
That looks like the Carb on my speedster. Texas T Carb...yes it needs a fuel pump.
Jay, when was your speedster built? It looks like it is the real deal, nice car. Don
Jay, when was your car built? It looks like the real deal, a piece of history. Don
Don, The car was built by a friend when he was in high school in 1955. His father was a teacher at a local college. Some students had a 1927 Model T they took the body off of to use as on float in a parade and gave him the running gear which he brought home to his son. The cowl, seats and body were hand built and the rest of the parts were scrounged. I have left it looking the way I got it all but the gas tank which I swapped out for a new one after the above photo was taken. It runs great and had pretty much sat it a horse barn unused since the late 50's until I purchased it about a dozen odd years ago.
