I have 2 x 'Model D' carbies (1") for my 10/12 Simplex engines. One has a hole in the the float valve cap (I understand the hole is designed to drain fuel if the carby floods). The other does not have that hole (but it has a small round recess on the inside where the hole would normally be. I have heard that the 10/12 Simplex may nor run well with the cap without a hole but that is the motor the carby came from. Any advice as to which is the better one to use? I also note that Simplex mount the air horn facing towards the motor. I presume this means it will draw warm, dry air and reduce the risk of spray entering the carby. I don't like disturbing something that works but does anyone have thoughts about whether it is better to face the horn away from the motor? Regards
