    Here are a couple of photos of my Yellow head. I don't have a good photo of the serial number, but that's how it was determined to be a 6-1 Yellow head. The first photo shows where the nipples on the piston would kiss the head after it warmed up.

    Interesting. I wonder if perhaps it was "re stamped" when it was resurfaced? The underside looks real clean as if it was resurfaced and then never run again.

    Thanks for the pictures Binger.

    Thanks for the photos! I am wondering if maybe the serial number was sanded down and then re stamped after its last resurfacing.

    Interesting that my cast head had no stamping on it. Hard to say what the deal is with them. its my understanding that the cast iron head were made before 1949 or so. I cant confirm this fact. Mine ended up with some cracks and I had my buddy @winduptoy repair them. I am still planning on running it but havent got to putting it on my coupe yet.

    I thought all original Winfield heads had flycuts above the pistons, the 2 reds and 1 yellow I had did.

    Interesting to see that almost everything with Winfield parts is a Ford. I found a Dodge Brothers to work on that came with a Winfield Model M 201A on it. I assumed the car was a Doodlebug when I got it. The frame, brake linkage, and torque tube were shortened and it only had the the cowl and hood. But unlike most doodlebugs, it didn't have a second trans or a big truck rear diff. All drive train parts were stock except for the shortening. It makes me wonder if the car was modified for hill climbing or something instead of a doodlebug. Winfield carb, short wheelbase, rear axle mounted solid to frame. I've posted a pic from the Craigslist add from when I got it showing the Winfield in place - it fits well and looks good there. It was stuck when I got it but I have been able to free up the throttle and the choke. Haven't got all the needles free yet. Fun for me to have one on a Dodge Brothers Fast Four which doesn't seem to be very common.

  7. That looks like an intake made for the Riley two port. It will work on a flathead but the mounting holes might be a tight fit.

    I have a similar manifold, and yes, it is for a Two Port, mine has Riley cast on it. Dan Iandola, RIP, had the patterns for a lot of Riley manifolds.
    As @62pan said the bolt spacing on an A/B is different.

    Just FYI, the port spacing on my original 2 Port is 9 7/16 and the bolt spacing is 2.975", yes, 2.975.

    Picked up this Winfield Model M carb today at a barn sale, it’s missing the screws on the float bowl, haven’t opened it up to see if the float is there. It was in a pile of old carbs, the choke chamber was off luckily I thought that part looked familiar so I took it. Realized afterwards they went together. The farm had so homebuilt machinery and lathe, along with miscellaneous parts. Got this, the Stromberg 48, a couple reamers, other misc stuff in two vintage Kraft cheese boxes for $10. What were these typically used on, Model T’s? 9395C79E-A8C5-4227-8D55-FF11A8E7AE77.jpeg

    TEN BUCKS ! Congratulations you really did well. Lets see the cheese boxes, cardboard or wood? Lube the barrel throttle real well in the Winfield, they were a great T item before the S & SR came out.

    That looks like a Two Port RILEY item to me.

    @31Apickup you did great like Bob said. Trying to not be too jealous on that deal.

    That was a great score! I have the same carb. on a Dodge Brothers Fast Four I found that had been shortened like a Doodlebug. I was excited to get mine. I've got my engine in shape and just about ready for a first start once my starter comes back from being rebuilt. I'll let you know how it works. There isn't a lot of literature out there about the model M. It was one of the early Winfield models. I do have digital copies and pictures of some documentation on the carbs. One is the set up procedure for fitting one on a Dodge six cylinder. I'd be happy to share if you're interested in them.
     

  16. I'm just circling back on this as I see I never answered. The running of one step down in size on the throat bowl to help with stumbling issues was a technic recommended by Winfield himself and even has a published technical service bulletin in it. That is where I read it.

    Jaril12, I’ll pm you my email address, I be interested in whatever digital documentation you have. Don’t have anything I can currently run this on, but am interested in how it works. The barrel valve is free, everything moves. The float bowl screws are missing haven’t opened it up to see if the float is there. The bowl like fitting on the bottom where the fuel line goes in has some cracks in it. The farm sale I got it from had some homemade equipment, several steering columns from 20’s era cars and several other carbs. The other carbs were Carters, 20-30’s.
