Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Wheeler-Schebler FA carburetor opinions?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Chris Rini on Friday, December 22, 2017 - 03:01 am:

My T sat for too long, and I have a varnished up NH carburetor. I also have a Wheeler-Schebler FA that I'm tempted to run. Any thoughts or experiences to relate?

Thanks!

There are 2 versions of the FA. They are set and leave carbs. I run type with the enricher needle and have the other type on the shelf. I have run both types in the past. The early type has two needles that you set and leave. The later one has an enricher needle, when you start or need a richer mixture you pull the cable the lifts the main needle up. It also is more or less set and leave. They are a straight thru type carb. If you have the choke neck that is a plus. I think the one with the two set and leave needles might be Schebler's answer to the Stromberg OE and the one with the enricher needle the OF.

How do you set the two needles?
