What exactly is an air friction carburetor, why is it called air friction, how do they work/differ from other carbs and, do they offer any performance/mileage advantage?

Thanks in advance.

The above has link to patent so you can learn all you need :-)

Seems adv. is usual marketing claims..faster..smoother..more miles and smiles :-)




You see lots of them at swaps, this is my wall hanger. Looks impressive on the little T intake!

Gentlemen: Thank you, but, do you/have you run one on your T? If so, any difference in performance or mileage?

I was wondering the same thing. In other words are they any good? I think most T's use the old NH for the most part.

I ran one for 35 years on my 14. It always ran great. Lots of miles with no problems.
