Yes, they're back, even though they never really went away. And they're just the same, But better than ever. The Genuine Stromberg 97. A brand new carburetor with Stromberg on one side. A big 97 on the other. And on this model, an exact re-issue of the original Stromberg cable choke lever and bracket, as used on special aftermarket 97s made for 1949-53 Ford models. Available only from Stromberg Carburetor.
Here are the highlights:
-Super-accurate pressure die-castings from new dies, CNC-machined for a blue-print parts fit. So no oversize screw threads. No mystery parts from previous rebuilds. No problems.
-An early style cast iron base with stock size - not second-best oversize - throttle shaft. Parkerized and black lacquered just like they used to be.
-A reinforced air horn casting with extra material around the float bowl lid to eliminate warping and leaks.
-Stock original (sea level) Stromberg jetting – 0.045 main jets and a Number 65 power valve.
-162cfm out of the box (independently verified) measured at 1.5inch Hg (same as they measure 4-bbl carbs).
-A new brass float, made in USA on original Stromberg dies.
-A specially developed no-stick S-Jet inlet valve.
-Modern, high-tech, reinforced gaskets. Sorry, no leaks.
-Stainless steel linkage throughout. Who needs rust? Not us. Our springs are stainless. So is the accelerator pump rod, the throttle linkage, choke plate, lever and more.
-Beautiful investment cast stainless steel throttle and accelerator pump levers.
-Correct pale chromate zinc treatment using the original Ford Service Bulletin process.
-Original-style riveted throttle and choke shafts.
-Extensive dyno and road tests have proved that it matches or exceeds original spec.
