Default 1935 Model N Fordson

Hi. My brother picked up a 1935 Model N Fordson tractor this past summer and needs some info on the carb/vaporizer. Would someone have or know where he can get a detailed service manual for the carb that I could get a copy off it.
He gave me these #'s off the carb. not sure if they will be of any help.
Manifold # 2381
Throttle Body # 2472.2
Fuel bowl and float # 1823

Thanks for any help.

Jonny We need a picture of your carb. From 1928 the Fordson F and N used a Zenith Carb but somewhere in the 30's the Model N switched to a later type Carb. The numbers mean little. I have a complete rebuild mamual I have developed over the years

Pic No 1 shows what a typical Zenith Manifold Carb setup.
Pic No 2-3-4 shows a pair of Zenith carbs With new machined Venturies I had made. Many parts are available from The Fordson House in Michigan
Hope this Helps. Ed B

Some model Ns were shipped with the Kingston manifold.

Ed, here are some pictures of my brothers Vaporizer that was on his '35 Model N fordson. It looks like a Kingston Vaporizer. What's your thoughts on it.

Johnny,
That is the Kingston vaporizer, and particularly the one made for kerosene. There was also a Kingston distillate manifold that used a 2 plate system.

It looks to be in very good condition. A couple tips,
1.Make sure the holes in the nozzle (seen in first picture between 2 screws) are open and the passage to the nozzle is open into the fuel bowl. Nozzle can be removed if fuel bowl is removed from the vaporizer plate.
2.Make sure the mating surface of the vaporizer plate and manifold are both perfectly flat and smooth. This has to seal pretty air tight. A very light coating of permeated ultra copper silicone can help it seal. It will degrade in time, but it is a good idea to remove this plate every year or so to clean the passages from carbon build-up.
3.Check that the bronze flapper in the vaporizer beyond the choke moves freely on the pivot bolt. This acts as a variable Venturi and needs to move easily with varying engine vacuum to adjust mixture. Pivot bolt is in left of first picture on vaporizer.
4.Larger Hole in vaporizer that would face outward on tractor should have a plug. Smaller Hole in vaporizer facing forward on tractor should be plugged or can have a primer cup.
5.This manifold while designed to use kerosene, can be run on gas. It will probably work fine just to putt around in parades on gas, but if you intend to work the tractor the manifold may get too hot for gas, and you may have to run it on kerosene.
6. If your float is damaged, I have made ones from an Autolite 2300 2barrel Ford carb. Size is pretty close, you just have to make your own hanger.

Are you missing the choke in the vaporizer? This can be fabricated, but the choke shaft is a little funky as it has a flat spot to control air flow thru the curved tube on the back of the vaporizer.

Hope this helps. Good luck! I'll try to scan some pages in the parts and operator manuals on this manifold for you. May not be for a week or so.
-Steve
