Well it started and it seems the seller told the truth. The needle and seat seem stuck wide-open but I'm gonna go ahead and order a rebuild instead of trying it myself this time.

I really like the mixture adjustment on the top, so I hope this is the proper carb for my 1924.

Chris,

Looks about right to me. But what's with all that extra plumbing in the picture?

Now's the time to correct if if you're taking the carburetor off to rebuild it.

Thank You very much!

I just ordered a rebuilt carb and gasket. Will rearrange fuel line addition that made the shutoff easily accesdible.

Also noticed the valves are stuck on my sediment bowl, so that's now on the list.

First Model T startup today... And a Very funny true story...

Three Mormon missionaries were walking by and I invited them to ride along because they had watched me change the oil and plugs, etc.

After about 10 stalls we got up the hill but soon after turning around, as we were coming back down the hill the radiator cap blue Rusty rain all over their white shirts and my windshield.

Hahaha

I hope a new radiator cap solves the problem. I told him they are truly my "witnesses" that it runs.

They are so simple to rebuild, why waste your money? And, where is your hot air pipe?

I got one rebuilt for $145 and will tinker with mine as a backup. Hot air pipe sounds important for winter. Do you have a pic?

Hot air pipe. The exhaust manifold heats air which goes into the carburetor.

NH. Just like mine.
Up here in Minnesota, I've never taken my hot air pipe off! I really should for the two months where it's more harm than good. Ehh, maybe not.
Chris, I loved your story! It reminds me of an old Ellis engine slinging oil from the mains on people's white shirts. :-)

Don't be so quick to buy stuff off the shelf such as a radiator cap.

First of all, make sure you have a gasket under the radiator cap so, if the radiator starts to boil, the hot coolant and steam will exit via the overflow pipe, not from around the radiator cap.

Second, address the cause of the overheating which may be something as simple as improper ignition timing and/or operator error.

Third, if you haven't already done so, read the owners manual:

Woo-hoo! Thank You for the link to an Owner's Manual!

RTFM for sure

Chris - Erik has given you some great advice. The Model T is very simple and will reward the curious. Do not try to buy your way out of a problem or it might punish.
