While pawing through an antique display case searching for a nickel plated touring/roadster rear window frame with glass, I saw a sandwich bag with a carburetor in it! Many years ago I sent a half dozen or so T carburetors to Jack for a rebuild. Four or 5 were either Wizard or NH straight throughs. I used one on the '19 centerdoor, others on the '26 roadster and Tudor. Even installed a straight through on a '19 Fordson. But today I retrieved and opened the sandwich bag containing a rebuilt Wizard that I had forgotten about. Then I remembered that Jack even made the flappers for the carbs that used them. Then I became a washed with fond memories of a night spent with the Darons in Brownsburg and meals enjoyed with Jack at Chickasha.
Now if I can figure out how to merge the 'new and improved' way of adjusting the fuel/air mixture while driving with the 2 hole Plate on top of this earlier carb....Bet uncle Jack could ;o)

Great memory and glad you shared. I had never met Jack but he was as upright a person as anyone can aspire to. Miss his posts

Agreed, Jack was always good for a great story and sharing another way to do things. George isn't it funny that it's the little things that help us remember our humanity and fond memory of others that have touch our lived prevail.
