I am working a a Tillotson M-15A carburetor for a very early standard twin. It has a Serial number 34C2. I have good reason to believe that it is the second production Standard Twin to come out of the factory. I want to keep the tractor as original as possible. I have the Tillotson M-15A carburetor all apart and it is not looking good. I do not know if I can salvage it. The problem is I do not know where to find parts. I went on Tillotson's website and I can only find parts and manuals for side draft carburetors and carburetors for 2-cycle engines not the early updraft carburetors. I am thinking about just buying a working Tillotson M-15A carburetor because I don't even know if I can save the one I have. I am having problems just finding parts for one let alone a whole carburetor.


Any Help?

Welcome to GTT.  You should check with our sponsors. I have been impressed with what they can dig up. You can also try Epay. Another possibility is if you have a local carburator shop. My local carb guy is incredible what he pulls out of his old barn. You can check our Manuals Section for more info(3 free downloads per day). Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to GTTalk !  There are a lot of members here with knowledge of the Standards and many have Twins . Possibly one might have what you need or where to get it
