We have just returned for a Model T Rally in Australia, which was a
wonderful time, and I did find three Maxwells there which we did not have
listed in the registry.
Now to some Maxwell business. Thanks for your kind words Jim on the
Carb. The track record on those I have rebuilt is 100%. It should run
about like the engine would on a Model T carb. But it will never pass a
Model T! Two cylinders are not going to surpass four!
I am planning on writing an article for the Horseless Carriage Gazette,
and in fact I have the pictures taken and have talked with the editor John
Myers about it. I should have the script to him in a couple of weeks. I
have no idea when it might appear.
In the meantime I am most willing to help anyone on the subject of
Maxwell carbs. I like to see original equipment used whenever possible. It
is not rocket science to make one work, but we do usually have to overcome
some lack of quality control.

The next chapter....
Sent the carb to Vern and he rebuilt it to be worthy of a show car. I
am very pleased, Vern is great!
The next step is to try it on the car, which won't be done for a few
months,as the car is stored until I finish a project filling my shop,
literally! If it runs anywhere as good as it looks we'll be passing
There seem to be some peculiarities that the carb has that Vern
understands, like there is ONE way to put on the throttle lever that
works, out of a possible eight! He replaced the float with a brass
one and replaced all the homemade gaskets with very professionally
He should write an artical for the Gazette, I know I'm not the only
one frustrated by this card.
Thanks again Vern.
