I finally had sometime to work on the Model T.
It hasn't run just right since the motor swap - low power in high gear when going up a slight hill.

Today I gapped the plugs at .025 -they were at .030 - cleared the fuel line - blew air back towards the tank to be sure that nothing was blocking the flow - and reset the float in the NH carb.

I was thinking that I should just switch to my spare NH carb but realized that one on the car had an offset drain and was a center drain.

At first I thought I would just swap the bowls but when I took them apart it became apparent that the was a difference.


I thought about putting the offset drain bowl on the center drain carb because the slots are to allow the gas to get to the center drain but just put the whole offset assembly back on.

By the way - The car now has significantly more power in high gear on the slight hill so I must have done something right!
