Re: U & J Speedster Carb

They are different carbs. The U and J is more of a performance carb, will burn more gas, has more Zoom than an OF. OF is probably smoother, better economy and better for a stock engine.
Generally speaking, an OF is not big enough for a speedster engine, the U & J is very popular for speedsters.

For sale, one big drum Ruckstell + still have the small drum. Thanks, Stan

Dallas, I won't be at ocf again. That's a busy time of year for me and I can't walk as much as you have to walk there. As far as chickasha, I think I'll be there, I dunno for sure.

I think they suffered from poor cam timing -- or at least I've been told that. Somebody back east works on those and makes a cam for them that makes them run better.

Nah, I just cash the check, throw the box in the post office, go back to the shop and start on another one. I'm easily a couple thousand carburetors into this, I tend to just want to get it done, leak tested, test run, in a box and gone. I have shelves of carbs needing to be done, not enough hours i...

Put this one in a box and hauled it to the post office to go back home to its Hupmobile owner. Not many of these around. Most were taken off, thrown as far as the owner could throw it and replaced with something else. This one is one of the ones that survived, runs fine on the test engine. It is a B...

I like stuff like this.
Most people don't seem to, they want everything shiny and new.
I'm always afraid if I donated things like this to a museum they would just throw it in the back room and forget about it.
I also have a very cool metal lathe made from Model t parts

Re: U & J ready to go -- what takes the time!!

Powder coating pretty well hides the pock marks and imperfections.
Brass coating highlights them.

Plus there are not enough hours in the day, days in the week or weeks in the year to do everything.

Re: U & J ready to go -- what takes the time!!

It also makes a difference what condition the core is in. One that is beat all to hell, missing parts and has some soup can Venturi soldered in is a lot harder to rebuild than a nice core. That said, I sure wish there was a source for brass bowls for these, Holley two screw, Holley H1, Holley G, etc.

Depression Fender Patch

Burger mentioned what I think is this fender patch from eastern Montana probably done when it was a long ways to a Ford dealer and the T owner had far more time than money. It had probably laid in the iron pile for close to 100 years when I dug it out. We sold it at an auction in eastern Montana abo...
