Carter Carb. “Starter”

Recommended Posts

Found this in a box of old tools I acquired.


What was it for? Correct box for the tools? Pamphlet says Copyright 1938 Carter Carburetor Corporation. Reprinted November 1946.


Sorry the one picture is upside down, I can’t get it flipped.

Is there an identifying part number on the tool?  Does it say T109-121S?  If so, this is a special gauge needed to adjust the Carter Carburetor vacuum starter switch.  I have an old Motor's manual that refers to this tool in order to measure the throttle valve opening in degrees.  The starter  switch must be installed on the carb  with shims in order for it to activate from between 30 to 40 degrees of throttle opening.
