    Default Identify this early carb and manifold please

    Just picked up this carb and intake and would like to know what it fits, it is unusual with the external threads on the carb body. Thanks, Gary

    Its delightful, whatever it is, Gary!

    Thanks for the pics for my library.

    Can you measure the manifold spigot thread pitch and diameter?
    They appear right hand?

    That's a Flying Merkel twin intake manifold, circa 1914. The bracket lugs support the compression release assembly.

    Can you get a thread count and spigot diameter for Posterity, Gary?

    I keep notes, Thanks...

    1 1/8"-16tpi, Gary?

    That's unique!

    Certainly different than anything on this chart (Sorry I forgot who shared it... but thanks!)

    The variety of early Schebs is incomprehensible, Folks.
    One 1" HX crossed my benches that was 1" NPT.

    I just figured out the little 3/4" NPT Hen carbs are actually 24mm bores.
    Now I gotta change my float labels again.

    It is a right hand thread and a straight thread which takes a thin lock nut to keep it tight. It is the only carb I have seen with an external thread and it is built for the ported air sleeve as there are stops on the body for it and the stock air intake for the front of the carb falls in the body as it is bigger.
