The 81. A new carburetor from Stromberg?

Over the years we have had a few enquiries about making a new Stromberg 81, mainly for Ford flathead 4-banger lovers. So we tried a little project recently to replicate 81 style cfm flow and performance by sleeving down a 97. It worked pretty good with a strong signal and correct flow, so we are moving the idea to CAD next. We’re not sure a new bowl casting is a certainty, but we can make special size venturi inserts, coupled with a new base.

  1. Thanks for doing this. I look forward to using 81’s in a multiple carb application. How is the process going? Thanks

    • Hi Terry. As of early Jan we have the bases all ready to go and we are making the venturi inserts and the pieces to reduce the accelerator pump bores this month so we should be ready for launch after we return from the GNRS.

    • Hi Justin,
      We are making the last pieces next week. The sleeves for the accelerator pump. So we should have them ready for sale in March, we hope. Thanks for your interest. We will post up again once we get them tested and in stock.
