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!

Jay, when was your speedster built? It looks like it is the real deal, nice car. 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.
