    Could you get a close up photo of the data plate? From what I could tell it's a pressure carb that goes to a number of engines. If I had a good look at the data plate i might be able to narrow it down for you.

    FLYBOYJ, here is a closeup onto the data plate.
    Sorry for the late reply. I was somewhere in mission...
    Hope you can tell what it is for.
    It belongs to a friend, and he asks me from time to time. He told me it was installed in a funnycar (!). His is nuts for ancient aviation memorabilia. Only he doesn't know this item very well. Appreciate any help.

    Did a check on the net, and found the Bendix Stromberg PD-12-K10 carburettor was used in the Wright R-1820 cyclone motor.
    Wright R-1820 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It may have been used in others too, but so far that's the only positive carby to motor match I could find on Google. Will let you know if I find anything else.

    You nailed it A4K - if I was a betting man I'd say it probably came off a DC-3. BTW Beto - was your friend running ethanol?

    No worries Beta, and thanks Joe!
    Would it be safe to assume, then, that the K10 suffix was the designation of the carburettor specialised for the Wright R-1820 solely, other types receiving their own suffix according to the motor they were fitted for (eg, the G-9 fitted to the RR V-1650 Merlin mentioned earlier) ?

    I found some information from AEHS web side: http://www.enginehistory.org/Carbs/CarbApps_05.xls
    NOTE: It is EXCEL file.

    According to Pete Law and Robert Mawhinney, who was collected that large excel file usage of carburetors, PD-12-K10 with part no 395641 is used on R-1820-56 as a service carburetor and plane where it used may be Lockheed C-56 Lodestar. K10 was used mainly on R1820-56 and experimental on R-1820-93 engines. It was used also as service carburetor on R-1820-C9HD, -G205A and 736C9GC civil rated engines.

    Perhaps you guys could help me, it looks like a farly standard twin down draft carb, as it was fitted on several engines would it just be case of rejetting as in the motor industry before FI's or was more radical alterations required
