    Default 1916 Indian Motor

    I recently came across a 1916 Indian Powerplus (?) motor almost complete but missing a carb and carb manifold. Can anyone guild me in the correct direction in terms of what I should be looking for ?
    Perhaps a picture if possible please.
    As always, thanks

    Hi Dan, I'm going to assume U R an AMCA member. In the virtual library on the AMCA homepage under features...there are 7 manual/sales brochures listed for 1916 Indian. I'd start there.

    Dan,
    The original carb would have been a Schebler HX. The carb to manifold flange has three bolts just like the small L& L or Linkert carbs. I'll try to snap some pictures when I get a chance.

    It should look very similar to the 1917 in the attachments, Dan!

    Note that the manifold has spigots that are removeable, and held in the casting by clamping screws.

    The carb is an HX153.

    Can you take a pic for us, Ross?

    I have pics of a "1914" with no cast or stamped numbers, and a "'20 Scout" with H157.
    And it looks like there's a '17 with no numbers waiting patently on my bench...

    For what that's worth.

    Holy Cow the Mrs. got em up. Just checked my file and I took this off a 1915 Indian twin in 1979. The engine went to a guy at Wauseon a couple of years ago and he made a killer racer. As mentioned the manifold has H116 stamped.. the carb...the old patent pending thing. Not sure Dan but this type was around in your era as the old hedstrom soup can was optional in 1915. Same manifold twin ends but not the 3 bolt on the Hedstrom as it screwed on. Also Dan, guys like Cotten are why we go to the forum. They know their stuff. Thanks Cotten for the offer to post. The wife had no trouble. Guess I'll have to keep her around.
