Question 1956 Gordon Smith Air Compressor

Hello From Virginia

I have a 1956 Gordon Smith Air Compressor: 265 industrial flat head Chrysler 6 cyl engine. 3 cyl running - 3 cyl compressing. All complete but carburetor.

Q: anyone know what carb I would need?

Gordon Smith 1964-75 261(Chrysler) used a Zenith 13004(type 68 updraft). Other units used a mixture of up or downdrafts. Quickly looked at the Chrysler industrial section and did not see the 265 listed. Most of them were 218-251 cu in. in the mid 50's. Not sure about the 1956 you have. If you knew for certain what the carburetor manufacturer was originally we might be able to look it up. Good luck.

Thank you for looking so far: but on a Gordon Smith Compressor it is a down draft but keep in mind where only running 3 cyl. not 6 cyl. Thank for the information so far. 6 cyl carb is to many cfm's. Fred
