If your trying to get better combustion on a Model A? Good luck, from what I understand the A and the B tended to have one cylinder starve.

What other DLTX Carb numbers will interchange. I only burn Gas so 'all fuel' or not! it doesn't matter!
I don't have a clue, but I saw an old Farmall B or C that a farmer had adapted a tillotson carb off an old chainsaw and claimed it ran better and had more power than ever !!! Not to say that would work on your project at all, just throwing in some useless drivel.

The left hand cylinder gets more fuel at idle with the single induction carb. Thats why most of them appear to miss at idle. Also at idle left hand cylinder is doing all the work and right hand cylinder is just coasting along.

Dual induction Duplex carbs fixed this problem and made the numbered series tractors run smoother.
