The next picture is my model C carb Maytag which came before the D carb that Tom showed (correct Tom?). Notice it has the same crankcase as the model G carb of Tom's Engine.

The final picture is my F carb Maytag, the engine is a basic crankcase mounted carburator, but this carburator is very rare!
I just noticed something about this F Carb .
It's not the same as my F carb .
The boss beside the fuel valve isn't drilled and tapped with a screw in it .
Any thoughts ?

Knew a guy in Colorado that had 40 some upright engines, and all were different. Carbs, tanks, stove legs, one hps. They made a lot of variations.
