Today's question; has anyone set up and run a Dodge Brothers Stewart Detroit Lubricator carburetor on their T? If so how did it run?

Mark:
I have used the DB Detroit Lub. carbs on both model T and A Fords with great success ...a very good carb ...if the air valve moves freely and the metering rod is clean and straight , and fuel passages clean then this carb will work very well and provide excellent throttle response and power and smooth idle ...also my 1917 DB touring often got better fuel economy than model T's on tour ( same roads and same conditions )...go figure? a bigger car , more HP and more weight ...always an optimist..gene french

Also, Look under "Dodge Brothers' in Ebay cars and parts. There are usually more than one listed at any one time.

Thanks Richard and Terry. Looks like they are made from 2 different metals.

Float and needle set up looks similar to Stromberg carbs from that period.

I built a replica engine for my '97 Olds and used part of that same carb as a mixer. Looks good for a static engine. A very common carb, readily available nowadays.
