Exclamation Re: Mystery brass carb

Looks similar to the one used on my Pacific Engineering fire pumps. They use engines built by Evenrude and Johnson, so I would bet the design is one of theirs. Your carb is missing a cover on the fuel bowl. It is held in place with the small spring steel part extending out from under the screw on the left. This cover has a hole in the center, unsealed, that the shaft on the float ectended thru, when the cover was in place. the cover centered the float, so it acted correctly, and when the exposed pin was depressed (held down), allowed the fuel to overfill the bowl. When fuel flowed out the top, you knew you had enough to prime the engine intake passage. This feature also allowed you to clear most small debris from under the fuel level needle too.
