What type of carburetor would I use

Post by Unprr » Mon Dec 16, 2019 12:13 am

I purchased a Model T truck some time back, along with various parts. I have a header and exhaust pipe, the mounting holes match the Model T manifold.
My question is this, if I decide to use it, what type of carburetor would I run?

If you use a big enough cam such as a 280 or 290 a Holley 1904/1908 series works well from a Ford 170/200 CI 6 cylinder.

Hope this Helps,

Hank
