Odd carb

For some while I have had on the shelf a carb made by NFS Carburettors of
Willesden which has an odd automatic air valve and fuel needle arrangement.
It carries a string of patent numbers, including a US one 1510028, which I
popped into the google patent serch mentioned in an earlier post. Thre it
was large as life and the patentee? One Frank Hadfield Arnott of Willesden -
could it be the same Mr Arnott of blower fame?

Not to highjack Nick's thread at all, more "whilst we are about it" ;o)), but I too have an unusual carb. Obviously a Stuart Turner, I've been unable to find another like it. I have mentioned it here before, but I'm pleased to note an ever increasing chorus of new voices on this NG & perhaps one of them might recognise it if the older hands cannot nail it down.

There was a similar updraft S-T on Frank ????'s stall (him with all the mag bits) at a rally last year. Remembering your enquiry I asked him if he knew what it was from, but unfortunately he didn't.

Well wadda you know, SEM dropped on the door mat this morning - only had a quick peep before heading off for the first day back at work but on the back page is a photo of the rare (dangerous word) Stuart Turner K complete with updraft S-T carb! Not quite identical to yours, but it is the only updraft application I have seen.
IIRC this engine was designed primarily for stop-start duty on refrigeration systems.
