Was a vaporizer carburetor standard on a 1926 Tudor sedan? I know it was in 1927 because I have the original instruction manual for my grandmother's new 1927 touring car and it has an illustration of the vaporizer carburetor and how to run it.

My '26 Tudor has an early December '25 production date. One of the reasons I bought the car was that it wasn't messed with mechanically. The engine (November '25 build date number matching original paperwork) had a Holley Vaporizer on it with the top linkage, but still had the block with the opening between cylinders 2&3, plus the dust pans with the single hole in it. So, I suspect the car is a transitional piece towards the beginning of the vaporizer era.

The hard part is finding the correct engine splash pans for a 1925 or 1926 with only one hole under the carb. I have several of them, and none are worth restoring. I finally had Rootlieb make me one, but he isn't interested in offering them to the hobby for some reason.

Larry:

How can one tell if they have an engine splash pan for a 1925 or 1926 with one hole? What makes them different than others?

Arnie: Who is they? If you do the research, you will find out for yourself why the '25-6 engine splash pan is different than the earlier ones. For 1927, they added one more hole in ADDITION to the existing hole. It is for the vaporizer. Other than the second hole, which is forward of the rear hole, they are identical.

Larry:

I have a couple of engine splash pans with only one hole. I do not know if they are 1925 or earlier. Is there an easy way to determine this?

So the who is "they" is me and/or anyone else that wants to determine if what they have are '25-6 engine splash pans!
