Flat Slide History

                                          Ronald Albert Gardner Flat Slide Racing Carbs
It seems that William H. Edmonston is not the only inventor that has come up with a float less flat slide carb design for motorcycle engines.  A gentleman by the name of Ronald Albert Gardner around 1947 starting producing a flat slide carb for racing that is very interesting.  However I have only very thin information regarding his carb.  And he may have produced several versions of the design to include both float less and an internal float carb.  Still trying to find some information and at this point it’s more for curiosity than anything else.  As part of my research I stumbled across a reference to William “Bill” “Red” H. Edmonston having passed away in October of 2007.  I will try and  verify that.
