Pretty much anything not covered by the topics above. Short lived production bikes or vehicles, Electrical, Tires, Paint, Brakes, etc. Use this for tech questions, and "Shoot the Bull" for general conversation, no tech.
That's certainly an "H" model (the airhorn is a spring-loaded valve; there was no choke mechanism, nor a venturi), which is certainly a curiosity since DLXs are listed back to '21 for the 74" H-Ds. And back to '15 for '61s.
However, I occasionally get requests to cut the 'horseshoe' 1 1/4" H float from J owners.
It wouldn't surprise me if commercial machines were often equipped with them.
Ironically, Indian models of the same vintages, such as the PowerPlus/Big Chief, are also often listed to have DLX carbs, yet many of those also are found with the large H installed. Deluxes may have been a preferred option.
There can be little doubt that you will find the DLX much easier to recondition and tune, and a much better performer as well. Most importantly, it has a bottom support!
Are you sure your DLX38 doesn't only have two airhorn screws instead of four?
The flange would be 'scalloped' instead of flat to allow air to enter.
