Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Holley G carburetor
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Allan Bennett - Australia on Thursday, April 26, 2018 - 09:03 am:

A friend is looking for a brass Holley G carburetor for his 1914 T. Should it have the circular brass two holed knurled disc on the srary needle for adjusting the mixture? Should it have a brass fuel bowl? Should the fuel bowl drain tap be the one sided brass tap or the two sided brass thread with the steel rod through it? I have a brass body, but need to know what goes with it.

The #6040 1914 is all brass, and has "Pat. Pending" marking on the cover. The drain plug should be brass.



Here is a 1915 Holley G, with steel bowl, but brass drain plug is illustrated.

Some G carbs have a flange at the choke end, and some don't. I've seen both kinds in both bronze and cast iron, and both kinds with starter car choke levers and non-starter car choke levers. Just as many Model T's have become parts salads over the decades, I think this is also true of Holley G carburetors.

There are at least 5 different mixing chamber covers. The top right one is also the same in cast iron.

So, it looks like I need a disc type spray needle, a brass fuel bowl and the drain tap with the steel rod passing through.

The brass fuel bowl will be tough to find probably.

Yes, and most of them are cracked.

Allen, they are out there. I found the right one for my 14 with a solid brass bowl at Hershey two years ago for $50.00

I have had luck silver soldering splits in brass bowls. You just have to be careful with the heat and use real silver solder to fill the crack. If everything is real clean it holds well and once you buff it with a coarse buffing compound you can't see the repair.
