Do You own a car built by Durant? 1926 Flint B40

Re: 1926 Flint

Darren... If you go to the links page/Durantcars/catalogs/Flint you can see that the Autolite system is correct for the B40,H40,and Z18 Flints while the Dejon system is correct for the E55 and E80 models. The starter on e-bay looks to be correct. I will send you a picture of a Dejon which looks almost identical.
As for your carb, measure the distance across the mounting studs on the manifold and the size of the center hole. I believe the correct carb is a Stromberg OX2. Most people have been getting a replacement repro from Frank Witkowski for their Durants... not sure about using them for the the Flints?
