I have two wonderful reference books from England, one being The Original Book of the Ford. One of the most complete books on maintaining a model T I've ever read. It being English there is mention of a straight through type carburetor called a Zephyr .. made in Leamington. I was in Leamington last summer teaching a photography workshop at nearby Kenilworth. Neat place.
Has anyone seen one of these carburetors .... any pictures?
From a 2005 post
From the original post:
"When we are in this carburetor identification business I would like to show a carburetor I bought last year. The text on the brass identification placard is “ZEPHYR CARBURETTORS FORD MODEL, T-553A-4 LLAMINGTON SPA-ENG.” There may be a letter or two between CARBURETTORS and FORD. But the rivet there makes it difficult to read.
On the other side the text QUALCAST is cast in the body. "
Interesting. Must be a different model than what was illustrated and discussed in my book. They mention that it was a straight through type. That looks like a standard NH.
