1955 EN707 Gas ~ Carb Plate question


Recommended Posts


Does anyone know what this rectangular box is at the base of my Zenith Carb. there is a copper tube that runs down to the exhaust manifold. I was wondering if it was some kind of automatic choke valve.... once the motor heats up maybe a spring or something opens in base of Carb???

Thats a carb heater between carb base and intake. Prevents icing during warm up and fuel puddling during extended idling (keeps the fuel vaporized) Ford and some Mopars ran engine coolant threough a spacer plate to do the same thing

Someone on a B Model page said it was a Vacuum Operated Governor? They pointed out that the screws have security holes in them, I haven't taken the front plate off yet because I didn't know what if anything could possibly come popping out on me....lol....that's my luck
