Rebuilding the stromberg carb

Postby Midnight.R » 11 Jul 2006, 23:05

Im having some difficulty removing the bottom housing from the carb, I have removed the screws and tried a rubber mallet but its not budging.

Haynes is not much of a help since its showing 2 versions of the older stromberg. :?

Is there somthing im missing out?

That one needs to be adjusted from the top.

Take the dashpot cap off and then you need to insert the special adjusting tool for this version. The rest will become clear.

There are two tools- one is a sort of castellated tube spanner for bottom jet adjust, the top adjust one looks like a 3mm L shaped shaft passing through a bar about 1cm diameter with a little fork on the end- this one adjusts the needle instead. You can't just poke a forky thing down 'cos when you try to adjust the jet you can rip the diaphragm- the outer bit of the proper tool is used to stop the needle holder from rotating.

Ive seen the tools on ebay, do a search for Stromberg.

Oh and I was just being weak and un manly, a good hit with a rubber mallet got the float bowl off :D
