Tom...I've never seen any. Just the "easy parts" like gaskets needle valves and floats.

Believe it or not, the slim pickin's available for Model G today are an improvement over what was available a few years ago. It's not as plentiful as the NH, but there are enough G's around that I would think there's a market for plates and shafts.

Well just got my G done and have yet to try it
I had buy 3 carbs and piece one together. I still had to buy a float and ventury. Have resold the other left over parts to another doing the same thing

The G is one of the better carburetors. I'll catch heat for that because on the recent articles over the last few years, they scored poor on the dyno test. But I live in the mountains... and they are the only carb that will pull a Model T with 4 people up these hills in high gear.

I think I saw a comment by Stan that it's his favorite stock Ford carburetor. I'd say that's a pretty good recommendation.

No heat from me, I like 'em too. That's what was on my '15 when I drove it to the Centennial and back, 1,800 miles in all. Never missed a lick.

So the question remains are there vendors or other sources making choke or throttle plates for the Holley G or will any of the available choke/throttle plates work with for the Holley G

Here is how I met with some success in rebuilding the G.

It isn't right for my 26, but the G sure runs nice. I want an older T just so I can run a G all the time, lol....

What do you need, John? I probably have it.

As far as I know there are no parts sources for the G other than the floats and the poorly made needle and seat sets that leak unless you work on them first. Gaskets are available -- the last sets I got actually fit the flange on the body and are the correct thickness.

I sure could use about half a dozen good bowls. I buy G's for the needle and the bowls. I recently bought the tap and die set for the seats and when I use up the last few sets I paid $20 each for that need work to work I will go back to reworking an old set instead of wasting time and money on the new ones. Needles aren't that hard to make, neither are the seats, it's just a time thing with me. There is never enough. I wish somebody would tool up to make the correct needles. Also both brass and steel bowls and the correct adjustment rods.

They are my favorite T carb that was supplied by Ford. Probably not quite as fast as some but they sure start and run nice and the large bowl gives more fuel reserve. Plus they just look cool, don't they?

Back in the mid 70s when I restored my 14, I went to Hershey and bought a Holly G rebuilt. Beautiful carb. $125.00 or $150.00 no exchange. Still on there. Still works great.

Question on the strangling tube?
Mine was missing but in a junk one I I stored from seems this tube has no clearance at the bottom
It threads on but seems to be in the way of the air adjust needle?
Also is there supposed be a gasket under the threaded screw opposite gas inket

Bob...sometimes extra gaskets end up under the brass orifice assembly at the bottom. Mainly because they're hard to see and a new one gets added without removing the old one. This raises the bottom and could interfere with the strangling tube. Otherwise, that suckered sits right on the bottom and rubs the adjustment needle. The screw head does not have a gasket underneath.

Thanks James after I installed it I notice it sat right over the needle valve but I moved very easily and now clears.
Like I said I took 3 Gs and hoping I made one that work
