New from Stromberg. Three cool stainless steel clips that solve so many hot rod linkage problems. There’s one for that pesky oversized Stromberg 97 choke ball so you can quickly convert it to cable operation. And two for the throttle linkage, to replace that spring-loaded old Ford piece that stretches open every time you accelerate!
Stromberg owner, Clive Prew, said “we’re all about about making Stromberg carburetors easier to use in more applications. And these smart new speed parts do that and more, in a cool traditional-looking way.”
First up, the new Stromberg Linkage Bomb (check the shape!), part 9164K-R and -L . They are sized to clip straight onto the bigger Stromberg throttle lever ball (most clips fit a 1/4in ball only). Ands they’re threaded 10-32 in left and right-hand versions for a 3/16in rod, with included lock nuts and small wrench flats for easy tightening.
Applications? Linkage Bombs are the perfect start for your hot rod pedal-to-carb linkage – use one right and one left and you can twist the rod to adjust the length. It’s also a straight swap onto that swaged end fitting on most hot rod throttle cable kits.
The Stromberg Rocket Clip (part 9166K) is a great new answer for that annoying Stromberg choke lever with its weird size ball! Just slide your choke cable or push/pull wire into the end. Fix it reliably with the the knurled set screw. And clamp the outer sleeve with a Stromberg 9552K-B choke bracket. If your hot rod throttle cable comes with a bare end, of course, the Rocket clip is the perfect answer.
