  • Model B carb throttle shaft with a arm

    Does anybody know where I can buy a new throttle shaft with a arm for a Model B carburetor?

      Yep, I was reading recently his site where he makes stainless tubes to replace the broken brass pieces. Impressive.

    Dennis did you make sure the shaft came with the arm ?, as most times the arm doesn't come with it, I met the guy at a swap meet that is making them along with the GAV tubes

      I talked to Dave on the phone and he assured me it is included.

        My GAV is in excellent condition. Only need the shaft with bracket.

          Finally getting around to putting the B carb back together. Somewhere I read about the throttle plate having a small notch and I can't find that info anywhere now. I should have taken notes when I took it apart but it could have been assembled wrong. So I need to know the orientation of that plate. It's 9585 in the illustrations. I read through what I could find on Vince's site but so far nothing shows up. Anybody's help I certainly appreciate it.

              Thanks Mitch, I read past that last night Up too late. I wonder if these carbs were built like the Model A, use the parts from that bin until they are all gone. I have the upper body that is like the second version with the brass idle orifice. So maybe it doesn't matter which way my plate goes because the notch in the plate does not align with the orifice, but I turned it so the notch is opposite side of throat.

                Thanks for everybodies help and suggestions. Finally got the B carb on and running with the B intake manifold modified to fit the GAV rod. Took her for a road test and everything performed as expected. The carb I got was in pretty sad shape as well the intake. Nothing that some evaporust couldn't handle along with some scrubbing. I matched the intake to my exhaust manifold and honed the surfaces of the carb, no leaks and idles smooth. Wish I had remembered to take pics before I painted, but there is no rust on any parts now. Thanks to Dave @ Renners Corner for getting me some needed carb parts, and thanks to Vince at Ford Garage for pictures and write-up on the B carburetor. They helped alot.

                Zenith carb throttle bore question
                by Jeff/Illinois
                I have a couple of Zenith carbs and a Holley carb that I picked up at an estate sale recently that I am cleaning up for spares.

                Question: How much play should there be in the throttle bore or 'bearings' I guess they are sometimes called? These don't seem to have much wiggle to them I am guessing they are OK. They are nice little carburetors that spent a lot of time on a shelf out of...

                Would anyone have a NOS A-9581 CARBURETOR Throttle Shaft Assembly of the Forged Brass and Stamped Steel types?

                I am not looking for one or the other to buy but for a restoration project/article.

                Thanks.

                Distributor lower shaft question.
                by greenhornet
                Was the long one piece shaft original to all four years of the Model A and the two piece for a shorter lower shaft extension later or after market? Also the lower shaft is just tongue to tongue with no pins holding it together with upper shaft? Thank You.

                'AUTOMATIC" parking brakes
                by bettlesr
                I have a '30 Sport Coupe with a F150 4 speed OD trans. With the arms to the rear end being shorter because the torque tube is shorter, the parking brake cross shaft lever is right above the arms. If I put some people in the rumble seat and hit a bump, the parking brakes come on tighter with every bump. Has anyone figured how and what to change to keep this from happening. Luckly I have a friend who...

                Distributor drive shafts
                by vonheine
                Most Model A distributor drives that I have seen use a separate shaft that couples the engine drive to the distributor shaft. I have also seen a few A distributors with one long shaft that reaches all the way down to the engine drive. I have been told that Ford never did this and that these are aftermarket distributors. I have also heard that the one piece arrangement is really a bad idea because...

                2-Tooth Steering Shaft 44" vs. 43"
                by Jwmckenzie
                I picked up a steering shaft with a nice worm and threads at the top. This shaft measures 43 inches. The shaft I removed measured 44 inches. So now I have a steering column tube that is too long for the shaft. Two Questions.

                How is the steering column, the sheet metal tube, shortened? I see two options:
                1. Take an inch out of the top, which would require the throttle and spark levers
                ...

                Picture of Model A Throttle Cross Shaft
                by Tom Wesenberg
                While the head was off at the tune up clinic on Saturday, this was the perfect time to take a picture of the cross shaft to show the 2 oil holes, and to show how close the fit is to the block. Remember, the forging is curved forward for clearance to the firewall. Some people think it is straight, but that is wrong.

                BTW, notice how I worded the topic. This should make it easy to find when...
