If this thing’s going to work (and we’re all meant to be on the same page, right?), then we need to share our stuff – our experiences, our pictures, our knowledge – you know, the general stuff that makes an automotive life worth living. That’s why we started this blog – so we can share our BS with you, and you can do likewise. Sharing has never been a one-man sport, so come on, show us what you’ve got!
Email us (email@example.com) some half-decent pictures of your Genuine Stromberg 97-equipped ride (or anything else for that matter), and we’ll try to feature it here in the Bulletin. Just remember to send us your name, town/state/country and a few details about your car/bike/tractor/whatever. We’re especially interested in how your 97s are set up (linkage, fuel, jetting), of course, so we can pass that information on to everyone else. Sharing and caring. Heck, we’ll be buying a Prius next….
Hello. I just finished the restoration of my 1941 Plymouth Pt125. I’m sporting all of Earl Edgerton equipment. Rebuilt stromberge 97’s on a fully polished aluminum intake. Have been fighting fueling issues. Running rich. Currently have 45 Maines. What would you guys recommended.
Hi Casey. Thanks for your comment. We have emailed you some tech advice. Thanks
hello, i just installed an offenhauser 4×2 carb set up on my 32 ford roadster i have two problems that maybe you can help with first the float bowl screw heads leak when i shut the engine off, and the second problem is the carbs dont seem to run right ,could it be jetting problems or just setting up the air fuel mixture which im not sure how to do it , can some one please help me ,thank you
Hi Jerry, Regarding the screw heads leaking, my money is too high fuel pressure. This is OK when the motor runs as it uses the gas, but once you turn it off, it is overfilling. 97s need 2.5psi max, ideally. Too much pressure can also affect running as the fuel tips into the carbs too easily so you are probably running too rich. Once you fix this problem, you can then look a the jetting. Feel free to email us again at firstname.lastname@example.org
I just built 496 chrysler stroker . With a offey manifold topped with a six pack . 97s Strom’s. With progressive linkages.. what a Wonderful work of art. They look soooo sweet.
