Youngblood combination carburetor and choke adjustment rod aftermarket

Post by Shemp » Sat Aug 24, 2019 11:39 pm

I came across this last night at a good friend's shop because I was in need of a knob for my choke rod. Only a small bit of the box and instructions remain, but what does, appears to be a cool 2 in 1way to adjust your fuel and choke your engine for startup. It was made by the Youngblood Sales and Manufacturing Company Atwood, Kansas. Anybody have one laying around with the intact instructions? Did anyone ever use one? Thanks for your insight.

Here in Australia I have seen and found a similar set-up. This allows the mixture control rod to be longer and mounted within easy reach on the steering column. The universal type joint halves are nickel plated brass castings on ours.

Here’s the instructions. I saved the pictures from an eBay auction a couple months ago.

That is a very handy device. I had a similar one on my dashboard when I ran a straight through NH.

Thanks again to Dan B for the photos of the diagram and instructions he saved I installed the combination choker and adjuster today and it works great!

It looks great! Not all neat T accessories are as functional.

Glad I could help.
