Anyone know anything about this brand? It is on a Avery V. I have not found anything about it yet, kit, source, etc. Thanks, Stan

I have found kits off the wall carburetors from the following link. http://www.thecarburetorshop.com/

The Tillotson carb should not be that uncommon in their application. Suggest getting the numbers from the carb then doing a web search.

I didn't see the Tillotson listed in the Valu-bilt and Steiner catalogs. Looked under Minneapolis and Avery.

I would disassemble the carb and see if you actually need to purchase parts for a rebuild.

Edit: I used to have a 32 Chevy with a Tillotson carb. Here is another link. http://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/2475

The Avery V used a Tillotson YC-6A carb. Steiners online catalog, http://www.steinertractor.com , list (under Avery V) a carb repair kit for the Tillotson YC, item # AVS002 for $40.95, a float item # AVS003 for $39.95, and a manifold gasket set that includes the carb mounting gasket, item# AVS001GK for $10.00. They also have the carb mounting gasket by its self for $1.95 I think, but I didn't look at the item number.

Thanks to all for the information. I have it disassembled and it does not seem to be plugged up in the jets. Maybe I will clean it out and try it to see what happens. Stan
