Bendix Battery single help

Postby Tom Manley » Sun Jan 14, 2018 8:23 pm

I have an early Bendix single with battery ignition. There appears to be a fuel line missing between the tank fittings and the "carburetor". If someone has a photo of these lines with the flywheel removed, I would appreciate it. Specifically, does one of the lines go from the starboard side carb fitting over to the tank fitting assembly, and then down to the lower fitting inside the tank?

Thanks,

Tom Manley

Does it have to be battery ignition Tom? I have a single with mag ignition and some photos of the choke knob. You can kinda see how the fuel line goes but I could always get some better photos if it looks the same.

Yes, battery ignition. It has the flip top, no external carburetor adjustments. The adjustments are on the casting that drops into the tank, with two copper tubes that go to the venturi tubes on the intake. Quite non-conventional.

OK, I know the ones. Flip tops were '36 - '37ish?

Did Bendix make anything “non-conventional”?
