Default Zenith TS4

Can anybody out there share some pictures, tech listings, rebuild manual sections or anything on this model of carburetor.

Ive got a copy of the factory manual for an engine that supposedly came equipped with one (later model New Way) and I'm having difficulty even finding a mention of this model anywhere else. I know it's probably going to be pricey if I ever do find one but I'd like to know what I'm looking for or for an idea to help me to find something close-enough.

Thanks in advance.

You might try Larry Isgro Carb Repair. He deals with Zenith carbs. He has listings on the internet.

This probably isn't much help but the only listing I have for "New Way" is 1936 and it used a TU4V. Similar in many fashions to the pony motor carbs on 2 cyl JD diesels and Cat dozers. I have "TU" series literature but I didn't see anything here in a cursory search for the "TS4". I believe that is a good model of carburetor as it shows up under some other brands but I do not have any pictures or literature on repair. You're probably going to have to find someone with good literature from the 20's, I have a lot but but only large amounts after about 1930, before that what I have is sketchy. Good luck.

Records of these early carburetors will never be complete; however:

Have no record of a New Way using any of the T4 series.

Have no record of a type T4S.

Zenith type T4 models of which I have records: T4, T4P, T4X, T4XF, T4XP

Typical usage of the Zenith T4 was early 1920's. According to my records, New Way during this period used Holley and Carter.

The Zenith T4 was an excellent carburetor in its day. It is a cast iron carb with a zinc alloy (pot metal) venturi. Virtually all of these have a cracked throttle body due to the expansion over time by the zinc alloy venturi.

If a diagram exists, I have yet to see one. Zenith laid out the various components of the standard T-4 on a clean sheet in the order that required the least amount of room and took a picture of the parts.

Jon.

My reference for this engine using a TS4 is taken from the factory instructions (New Way Model DH), page 31-32.

I don't have a scan of this instruction manual to post here but hopefully i can attach the link to the manual through the New Way Station website run by George Covey.

I can't find any other references to this model - that's why I posted here.

I rechecked my Zenith manuals. Nothing on a TS4.

Checked some of the parts numbers in the list showing Zenith part numbers in your link. The float, needle and seat, and all other numbers I checked are standard T series parts.
