Brown and Barlow

Postby Knud.Degnbol » Thu Aug 22, 2019 10:28 am

Yesterday I went on a 50 km trip on my 1928 model A. Somewhere on the way it lost the intake trumpet, so now I'm looking for a spare. The carburator is a Brown and Barlow, with which the bike was delivered from new.
I found an Amal one in one of my boxes. That could be pressed into service, but I don't like to do that. The Amal one have 24 TPI and the Brown and Barlow is 26 TPI. The outside diameter of the thread is 36,3 mm (perhaps a little worn).
With a little bit of luck, some one out there might have the correct one?

I think we all know that feeling. The hedges along the roads near me have a few gems from my old bangers and only the squirrels know where they are.

It will work OK without it, but it's not hard to make one. You would make it to fit your thread easyily enough . If it has a bell mouth you can spin it or work it on a former. Nev
