I have removed several of those and thrown them away.

There is no reason to run one of those. There are at least a dozen Model T carbs than run just fine and over 200 accessory carbs that run better or worse but are period correct. That is a lawn mower carb.

Melvin Francis in our Dallas club came up with this carburetor for his 26 coupe. It's designed for a Kohler engine and adapted to the Model T. In a improved model cowl tank it worked well for him. Ralph Zajicek was a fan of these carburetor and he put them on all his cars and sold them to others. The downfall of these carburetors is that they usually require an electric fuel pump. Ralph also used distributors in his cars. The result of either of these mods is your at the mercy of your battery and generator. In a stock Model T with magneto and coils you have redundant systems, either of which can keep your car going.

Ted
I suppose adding one of the magneto powered battery chargers would offset the concern you are talking about.
Ralph always impressed me with his "smarts", so the carb likely works well.
Royce next time you are taking one of please contact me l can try it just for chuckles and learning (which I live to do).
Last couple of weeks I've been tanning a buffalo hide just for the learning experience!!
Now back to working on my aluminum "T" engine!!

Les,

Are you making a buffalo robe for you or your wife or will it be a top for one of your open cars?

Ralph was quite sharp and an interesting fellow to learn from.

Well Les, I have to say, I feel sorry for the buffalo! Speaking of "learning experiences", I had MY hide "tanned" several times when I was a little kid, and as you say, it usually was indeed, a "learning experience"!
