For those of you with added starters on your 1916 and earlier cars, what did you do for the dash mounted choke? Did you use a bell crank on the firewall from a newer car and then a short rod thru the wooden firewall?
Did my faux '09 a bit unorthodox, had added electric starter so for choke and carb adjustment, found the Improved Car set-up the way to go.
The repro stock carb knob is now on the end of the Improved Car combo choke and adj... easy to add to a Holley NH.
Late '25-'27 set-up
Thanks Dan. This looks like a good clean solution. Your pictures are very helpful.
OK. So you have a straight thru NH carb on your ‘14. I have a U&J on my ‘14 runabout. But why do you have brass hood latches? The bling bling effect ?
I used a newer carb with the double choke lever on the carb. Then I took a 1/8 brazing rod and came up straight under the carb adjustment knob. Cut a notch in the floor board and put a hook on the top end and polished the rod. It stays standing straight and it looks good. I like Dan's setup also.
